Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds , toasted
  • 200g block feta
  • 2 tbsp honey , plus extra to serve
  • 1 tsp roughly chopped oregano
  • olive oil , for drizzling
  • warmed pitta breads , to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the sesame seeds in a shallow dish and brush the block of feta all over with the honey. Carefully press the honey-coated feta into the sesame seeds, turning so that it’s well crusted with seeds. 

  • STEP 2

    Put the feta in a baking dish (it should fit snugly), then sprinkle over the oregano and a pinch of sea salt. Drizzle with some olive oil. Bake for 15-20 mins until the feta is soft, then drizzle with a little extra honey and serve with the pitta breads on the side.
