BAKED FETA WITH WALNUTS, ROSEMARY & HONEY



Tonight I share my recipe for this unbelievable baked feta with walnuts, rosemary and honey. This delectable baked cheese has a lovely soft and creamy texture, and spreads fantastically on bread or crackers. The aromatic and fragrant rosemary works in perfect harmony with the sweet and sticky honey, making this rustic dish a wonderful appetizer. 

1/2 cup walnuts
a block of good quality feta cheese
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 sprigs of rosemary
2 tbsp honey or pure maple syrup

Preheat the oven to 180 C.

Dry roast the walnuts in a skillet over medium heat until slightly browned and fragrant. Set aside.

Place the feta in an oven proof skillet or baking dish. Sprinkle the rosemary on top, and then drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil.

Bake the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden on top.

Remove from the oven, drizzle with the honey, and then scatter the walnuts on top.

Serves 4 as an appetizer with crackers or bread.

  2. Hi Eleanor. This looks delicious. Does it matter what type of feta is used ie Greek, Danish, etc?
