So about time to give you my 10 favorite recipes with feta. I just realized that I don’t even my all time favorite; baked feta here just yet. But stay tuned for that one soon!

Recipes with feta

What makes feta such a delicious cheese? Now that’s something I cannot answer. I probably had my first bite of feta cheese in Greece. I’ve traveled to Greece more times than I can count and traditionally the first thing I eat when I get there is a big Greek salad. Of course with a big slice of feta on top.

Now keep in mind that feta is not the same as so called ‘white cheese’, even though brands may try to convince you otherwise. If you do go out to buy feta make sure to get real feta and not some bland alternative. Feta is not cheap but it’s worth it!

What to do with leftover feta?

Now as anyone who has used feta can probably tell you. Once opened the feta goes bad within 1-2 days. There is however a trick for keeping feta fresh and that is quite simple to freeze the leftovers. I tend to use half a block of feta for most recipes. I crumble the other half of the block as well, place it inside a small plastic bag and place it in the freezer like that. That way I can use it like that for any other recipes with feta I’ll be making in the future.

When you’re ready to use the feta you just take out what you need and it will defrost quickly. Perfect solution to not have to throw anything away! Now on to the recipes with feta.
