A Savoury-dish recipe, by Gina Lioti.
“Bouyourdi (oven–baked feta with tomatoes and chillies) is a delicious savoury dish, usually served with meat dishes or other meze.”Gina Lioti
Here’s why you’re going to love this
As with other delicacies, different places make it differently. My favourite is the Northern Greek version of it, which uses only a few, simple ingredients. Other areas make it with Kaseri (a Greek semi-hard, yellow cheese), onions, sweet peppers, even olives.
When we were having barbecues, we used to prepare it in tin foil, making a little boat and putting all the ingredients inside, closing it at the top until everything melted. The oven works just as well, though, especially if you use the grill setting. You can use it as a side dish, meze or dip.

- Chop the feta in thick chunks.
- Slice the tomato and top the cheese with it, but don’t cover it all.
- Sprinkle with oregano, chilli and black pepper and drizzle with a few drops of olive oil.
- Bake until the cheese has a golden colour.
You can dip bread in it, or you can have it as a side. It is amazing with pork chops, beef steaks or fillets, lamb chops, fried chicken fillets or on its own as a snack.
