• 8 oz. block of Kasseri or Feta cheese
  • olive oil
  • 1 cup cracker meal or flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 tsp fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 tbsp brandy or other liquor
  • ½ lemon


Preheat the oven to broil (highest setting).

Cut the cheese into half, then mix the eggs and milk in a container or bowl. Put the cracker meal or flour in a separate bowl. Dip the cheese into the egg mixture and then in the flour or cracker meal.

Have a pan or iron skillet ready with the olive oil and put the cheese in pan over high heat. Lightly brown on both sides.

Put the iron skillet into the oven or transfer cheese onto a sheet of aluminum foil in the pan.

Broil on the bottom rack for 5 minutes until perfectly golden brown. Remove from oven using a pot holder, pour the brandy over the cheese and ignite immediately. Wait 5 seconds until fire goes down a little bit then, extinguish the flame with the lemon.

Serve on pita wedges. The flaming finale can be done in front of your guests!
