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 over the other, and in the middle, place one block of feta cheese.
  3. Wrap the block of feta with the phyllo pastry into an envelope. Continue with the rest envelopes.
  4. Into a frying pan heat (high heat) some olive oil, so that when frying the wrapped feta cheese appetizer, it is half covered with oil. Fry the envelopes on both sides, until golden and crispy. Drain them on kitchen paper.
  5. Into a small pan, boil the honey, the red wine vinegar and water and stir.
  6. 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 appetizer.
