I was recently in Greece and had several amazing baked feta dishes. Each of the dishes I had slightly differed from one to the next so I decided to create a delicious dish that encompassed the flavors of the Mediterranean. I have recreated the baked feta dish based on my recollection of its wonderful smells and flavors. It is a simple yet divine recipe that I hope you enjoy as much as I do! You can use this vegetarian recipe as sauce over beef, pork, chicken or grains (pasta, rice, farro). It is also delicious as a dip for your baguette!
