Description

Phyllo-wrapped feta topped with truffle honey and fresh herbs. An elegant, simple appetizer for your next dinner party. Recipe by Ari of Well Seasoned Studio blog.


Ingredients
  • 5 sheets Athens Phyllo® Dough (9″ x 14″ ), thawed
  • ½ stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 7 oz block feta 
  • Fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon truffle honey or other honey
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds
  • ½ teaspoon black sesame seeds
  • ½ teaspoon flaky sea salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Working quickly, transfer 1 sheet of phyllo dough to the prepared baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, quickly brush the phyllo with butter. Immediately place another sheet of phyllo dough on top, then brush with butter. Repeat until all 5 sheets of phyllo are stacked.

Place block of feta in the center of the phyllo. Top with a few fresh sprigs of dill, then quickly and carefully fold the phyllo over the feta to create a packet. Turn the wrapped feta over so the seam side is facing down. Brush the top with melted butter, then bake for 25-30 minutes, or until phyllo is crispy and golden brown.

Drizzle phyllo-wrapped feta with truffle honey, then sprinkle on sesame seeds and sea salt, then garnish with fresh dill. Serve immediately.
