The secrets to the perfect breading
Before frying the feta, bread it first with sesame seeds. In order for the sesame to stick well on the feta and not to leave when we fry it, we will first pass it through an egg, then through flour and then again through an egg. We will flavor the flour with a little paprika and grated pepper for extra flavor and intensity that will complement the sweetness of the honey. Serve the breaded feta with sesame and honey with a fresh green salad with lemon and a glass of white wine. Have fun!
So go ahead, try this traditional recipe for feta bread with sesame and honey and enchant your friends and family with this delicious meze!
