A super easy Greek cheese appetizer (Feta me meli)! An extraordinary combination of spicy feta cheese, crispy phyllo and honey sauce, that will amaze you!


  • 4 blocks of feta cheese (5x5x1cm), approx. 350g/ 12 ounces
  • 4 sheets phyllo pastry
  • 2 tbsps sesame seeds
  • 4 tbsps honey
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of water
  • olive oil for frying


  1. To prepare this feta cheese appetizer, start by drying the feta with some kitchen paper. Use a knife to cut one phyllo sheet in the middle and brush with olive oil.
  2. Place the 2 halves of phyllo one on top of each other and in the middle place one block of feta cheese.
  3. Wrap the block of feta with the phyllo pastry, folding the edges over to form an “envelope” with your feta inside it. Continue with the rest of your feta blocks.
  4. Warm up your frying pan heat on high heat. Add a good glug of olive oil, enough to cover half of your feta and phyllo blocks.
  5. Fry your filo wrapped feta on both sides, until golden and crispy. Using a slotted spoon remove from the pan and let them rest on some kitchen paper.
  6. Heat up a small pan, add the the honey, the red wine vinegar, the water, stir and bring it to a boil.
  7. Drizzle the feta envelopes with the honey sauce and sprinkle with some sesame seeds. Serve while still hot and enjoy one of the most delicious traditional Greek feta cheese appetizers!
