Make your own version of this classic Greek appetizer of feta cheese and honey wrapped in crispy filo pastry. Serve with a glass of ouzo or red wine. Who needs to go to the Mediterranean when the Mediterranean can come to you?
Mash the feta with the 1 tablespoon of olive oil, the honey & the oregano.
Lay one sheet of filo pastry onto your work surface and brush it lightly with olive oil. Lay another sheet on top. Cut the sheets in half across the width. Repeat this with the remaining two sheets of filo so that you have 4 rectangles of pastry.
Spoon one quarter of the feta mixture into the centre of each piece of pastry. Fold one of the long edges into the centre, then repeat with the other edge. Fold the short edges into the centre, too, so that the cheese is wrapped up like a parcel.
Brush the parcels lightly all over with olive oil, then either bake them on a baking sheet until light brown and crispy (for about 10 minutes) or, if you prefer, pan-fry them for a couple of minutes on each side.
Meanwhile, toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet/frying pan until they are a light golden brown.
Serve immediately with a big drizzle of honey and some toasted sesame seeds over each parcel - with a little crusty bread if you like.
This recipe was slightly adapted from Jamie Oliver's recipe in his latest book, Save With Jamie.You can bake or fry these little feta filo parcels. They are lovely baked, but I suspect even nicer fried (don't worry, you can use healthy olive oil!)
