Fried Feta with Phyllo and Hot Honey

Fried Feta with Phyllo and Hot Honey

phyllo dough

feta cheese

extra virgin olive oil

honey, red pepper flakes,  thyme

Add the honey, red pepper flakes, and sprigs of thyme to a saucepan over medium heat until hot.

Dry off the feta cheese to remove excess moisture.

Place the block of feta onto the phyllo pastry.

Use two pieces of phyllo to wrap up the feta from all four sides.

Flip the feta seam side down, then wrap again with two more pieces of phyllo.

Fry the feta seam side down in hot olive oil until golden brown.

Carefully flip the feta and fry on the other side until golden. Remove and set on paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Add to a plate or serving platter, then drizzle with the hot honey.
