Herb and chilli baked feta has to be one of the speediest starters around! We all know and love baked cheeses like camembert but this gives a Greek twist. Feta is the perfect baking cheese as it heats well and keeps its shape whilst retaining it beautiful saltiness so get reading and get cooking. You may also like to try using flavoured oils for this too such as garlic or lemon and thyme.
1 block of feta approx. 250g
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp chilli flakes
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to 180c/ 160 fan. Place the feta block in a small ovenproof baking dish or alternatively place on a piece of foil with the sides lifted to contain the oil. Combine the oil, chilli and herb and pour over the feta. Bake for around 15minutes until the feta is warmed through. Spread on fresh bread and enjoy!
