Baked Feta Cheese

Baked Feta Cheese

1 block feta cheese (about 1 lb.)

3 cloves garlic minced

1/4 t. sea salt

1/4 t. freshly ground pepper

3 – 5 T. fresh oregano leaves

1/3 C. olive oil (may be herb flavored)

1/2 t. crushed red pepper

1/4 t. lemon zest finely grated

Place all ingredients except cheese in a large plastic zip lock bag. Close the bag and tip the bag back and forth to mix the ingredients. Break the feta cheese into large chunks and add to the bag.

Marinate for 3 -5 hours. Preheat oven to 375° F.

Place cheese and marinade in a pretty oven proof serving dish. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes until the feta starts to soften.

Remove from oven and serve with fresh crusty bread.
