Feta Saganaki

Feta Saganaki is a Greek appetizer which refers to feta cheese fried in oil. I first tried this dish when I was staying in Germany for several months. I loved crunchy outside and warm soft inside. So feta, tomatoes and olives on the side can really brighten my day!

What we need:

250 gr feta cheese
1 egg
1 tsp oregano
4 tbsp flour
4 tbsp of bread crumbs
4 tablespoons olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
1-2 tomatoes
some olives
a handful of rocket salad ( optional)
1 lemon, cut into wedges

What we have to do:

1. Slice feta into squares. In a small bowl, beat the egg, in another bowl mix flour with the oregano, and in the third bowl put the bread crumbs. Coat each slice of feta in flour, dip each slice in egg, shake off excess, and coat in bread crumbs.
2. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Quickly cook cheese in olive oil until golden, turning once. Pat dry with paper towels.
3. Arrange rocket salad and feta on a plate with thick tomato slices, season with black pepper, and garnish with lemon wedges. Enjoy!
