Serve this traditional Greek appetizer of pan fried feta cheese with slices of ripe, red tomatoes fresh from the garden.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 8 ounces feta cheese
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- freshly ground black pepper
- 2 large ripe tomatoes, sliced
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
Slice feta into 2x3/8 inch squares, about 8 slices. In a small bowl, beat the egg with the oregano. Dip each slice of feta in egg, shake off excess, and coat in flour.
Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Quickly cook cheese in olive oil until golden, turning once. Pat dry with paper towels.
Arrange feta on a plate with thick tomato slices, season with black pepper, and garnish with lemon wedges.
