Baked Herbed Feta Cheese Served with Bread is a fantabulous starter, which might also be served as a snack. The very method of preparation of the herbed feta cheese is different, in this case.


Unlike the usual procedure of making a sauce of the cheese and mixing in the herbs, here a whole block of cheese is coated with a mix of herbs and garlic, foil-packed and baked. The cheese melts within the foil, and the seasonings fuse with it, creating an awesome accompaniment for toasted bread. The process of baking inside a foil intensifies the aroma and flavour of the herbs.


Also note that no salt is used in this recipe because feta cheese by itself is a bit salty. This Baked Herbed Feta Cheese is served with peppy, cinnamon-flavoured thickened balsamic vinegar and toasted bread. Enjoy it fresh.
