Ingredients

  • 6 ounces feta in a block or round
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh dill chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Heat your grill and when the grill is hot (about 400-F), pre-heat the cast-iron pan. This will help reduce the time the feta needs to stay on the grill.
  • Chop all your herbs and have them ready to go.
  • Place the feta into the center of the cast-iron pan and drizzle the olive oil over the top. Pop the pan onto the grill and leave it for about 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the grill and top it with the ground black pepper, red pepper flakes, and fresh herbs.
  • Dig in while it is still warm and gooey!

Notes

Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Use a good quality full-fat feta. Low-fat feta just won't melt the same way.
  • Fresh herbs are best, but you can use dried in a pinch. A good Italian seasoning blend would be my first pick.
  • Don't move the feta right off the grill. Make sure you use a dish that can go from grill-to-table because the feta will fall apart if you try to transfer it to a new dish.
