Baked feta recipe: made from sheep, goat or cow milk?

A crumbly white slice of a spicy cheese in brine: In this country, this already makes a feta cheese for many. Strictly speaking - and written down in an EU regulation - only sheep's cheese and goat cheese from Greece can be called feta. However, you can also prepare our recipe for baked feta with milder brine cheese made from cow's milk, depending on your taste.

The strong taste of gratinated sheep's cheese or the special aroma of cheese made from goat's milk is simply not for everyone. In our Sheep Cheese Food Knowledge you will find a lot more valuable information about feta and co. An important note for connoisseurs with food allergies: Original Greek feta is usually lactose-free! With our baked feta recipe, in the end, as is so often the case, it only depends on your own preferences. Whether original Greek feta or herder cheese made from cow's milk: your taste decides!

Feta is part of Greek cuisine like tzatziki and souvlaki. Round off your Greek evening in style with our recipe for Greek salad with feta. A glass of Retsina is of course recommended as a suitable drink. The resinated white wine with its strong taste goes very well with dishes with spicy cheese. You can find more great recipe ideas with feta in our feta recipes.

Fast vegetarian cuisine: enjoyment entirely without meat

Our Baked Feta Recipe is a good example of how diverse, tasty and aromatic vegetarian food can be. The special thing about our recipe is that the ingredients used, such as garlic, feta, olives, walnuts and oranges, are themselves so flavorful that the dish hardly needs any spices. A pinch of salt, a little pepper, sage and thyme for the Mediterranean note and a top-class vegetarian dish is ready. Incidentally, the feta casserole only needs 15 minutes in the oven. This keeps the vegetables crunchy, vitamins and nutrients are retained and the baked feta still gets the creaminess you want.

The vegetarian cuisine is also suitable for party and finger food. In addition to various dips with raw vegetables, our recipe for fried zucchini is also ideal. This dish also has its origins in the fantastic and varied cuisine of Greece. And like our baked feta, the fried zucchini also get along wonderfully without meat. Even our recipe for tomato salad with feta doesn’t have to hide in terms of richness of flavors: Fresh vanilla in the dressing provides that special kick. Our melon salad with feta is turned into a taste sensation with juicy melon and a fine lime dressing. So it is not difficult at all to eat a little less meat, which is good for your health and our environment.
