A GREEK CHEESE TART YOU WILL NOT RESIST, I SWEAR!

A GREEK CHEESE TART YOU WILL NOT RESIST, I SWEAR!

When I found this Greek cheese tart I was tempted to do it the same day. But I didn’t have feta (Greek cheese) at home…but it remained in my mind, and today I prepared it before lunch.

This cheese tart is so easy to prepare that I was quite doubtful. Then the strong aroma while it was baking (just 20 minutes) wasn’t what I expected and I was quite convinced it was not going to be a recipe I’d post or repeat.

I had all these thoughts …before tasting it. I prepared it in advance thinking about dinnertime… but I couldn’t stop eating it. I found this amazing cheese tart in Saveur.

It can be prepared by anyone – I mean anyone. You don’t need to know anything about cooking. You just have to mix the ingredients and pour into a baker sheet and then adding the feta with your hands. The result is something I cannot explain. The feta itself has a strong taste, but it is perfectly melted here.

If you’re invited to dinner and want to take something, prepare this feta cheese tart and I am sure you will receive a lot of compliments. Well, do you have feta cheese in your fridge? Not? How far is the supermarket ;-D?
