Method

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Sit the feta on a sheet of foil. Scatter over the chilli and oregano, then drizzle with olive oil. Scrunch up the foil to seal the feta in a parcel, then place on a baking tray and bake for 10 mins until warmed and softened.

I did this in an oven proof dish, covered with foil, then uncovered to brown slightly for a further 5 mins. Very tasty and so popular with a crowd. I didn't have oregano so used thyme which was just as nice as when my friend made it!

So easy and tasty. Had it with the tangy roasted peppers and some bread. Incredible.

Gemmalem I dont find that its goes too runny, but to be on the safe side why don't you wrap in parchment, then tin foil you can then remove the foil and pour back anything that has escaped. Its a yummy dish hope it goes well at your dinner party

Hi, does anyone know if this will have the same effect if I cook it in baking parchment instead of tinfoil? I'm having an everyone-sharing dinner party and thought that might be a bit nicer presentation than tin foil, but I don't want it leaking out etc! Any hel would be great, thanks.

This was so easy but so tasty - had it as a starter with some other greek dippy stuff (tzatziki - sp? - taramasalata and pitta bread), and it was lovely. This was the one that everyone ate first!

This is totally moreish. Served it at a family bbq on night (family staying with us for 8 days) and had to make it the other 6 nights too, as it was so popular.
