Spicy Baked Feta (Feta Psiti)

Rated as 4.4 out of 5 Stars

"This is such an easy appetizer that never fails to impress! People are familiar with feta, but this traditional Greek way of preparing is not as well known. The salty/sour taste of the feta offsets the heat of the chili flakes - so don't be afraid to load them on! Serve with crusty bread or toast."
