Oven-Baked Feta Cheese Dip

Feta Cheese Dip: Baked Feta Cheese Dip with tomato sauce and garlic.

oven-baked feta cheese

Feta cheese – you either love it, or hate it. I had no choice but to love it. As a Macedonian you are almost expected to want to eat it night and day. It’s like an Italian and his mozzarella cheese; they go hand in hand.

I can eat feta with every meal, and with every course of that meal; I put it in my salads, I stuff it in my peppers, I flame it, I even bake it! Oooooh I love it when it’s baked!

Baked feta cheese dip can, and will, turn all feta-haters around. This appetizer is served at just about every restaurant in Macedonia (called сирење во фурнаsirenje vo furna) and one serving is never enough. It’s cheesy, it’s garlicky, a bit tart, and it’s warm and gooey. And, it will make you cry for more. Trust me.

To fully enjoy it all you will need is a side of flatbread, white wine, or beer, and a grilled steak to follow.

I think you just drooled – It’s okay – you can thank me later.  Winking smile
