Fried Feta Cheese

Fried Feta Cheese

  • Author: Abby Turner


  • 1 block of feta cheese
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil 
  • 1/4 cup fresh thyme  
  • 1 teaspoon of salt


  1. Take the Feta Cheese and pat dry with paper towel. 
  2. In two bowls put the beaten egg and bread crumbs, separately.  Add the teaspoon of salt to the bread crumbs. 
  3. Heat the olive oil in the pan over medium-high heat. 
  4. Take the feta cheese and dip each side with the egg and then dip each side in the breadcrumbs. I like to do each side one at a time. **Make sure to coat the block with the bread crumbs – don’t be shy with the egg (that is your glue!)!
  5. When the oil is hot enough that the breadcrumbs sizzle, hold the Feta with tongs and rotate leaving the cheese on the oil for 30-45 seconds, or until each side is crispy.  It will not take long.  So don’t try to multi-task or walk away 🙂
  6. Serve with warm honey drizzle, on a plate with your salad, or with crispy pita chips!
