Sunday, November 18, 2007 recipe of the week - Tiganopita me Feta

The round up for Weekend Cookbook Challenge #20 was full of yummy recipes - as are all of the the round ups - but Valli's contribution of Tiganopita me Feta - basically a baked pancake full of feta cheese really piqued my interest. How could it not? A pancake - and it's full of feta cheese!

I made this for dinner on a night when I was home a little earlier. After the eggs, flour and water are whisked together, the batter needs to sit for a minimum of 30 minutes and up to 2 hours. Then the feta is added and the pancake is baked for 30 minutes, until it's all golden brown and pretty.

Scott liked this much more than I did. I really think it was the type of feta that I used - it had a very very mild flavor. Too mild I think. The flavor was plain but this dish would be quite wonderful with a strong feta.

Now that's one that looks revolutionary in it's simplicity and I'd think you're right. The right feta and this could be over the top.
