Feta Phyllo Squares



Crispy, creamy, salty, crunchy - these baked feta phyllo squares have it all. 

This recipe is inspired by the Crispy Feta Pockets recipe on Delish.



  1. Preheat the oven to 420 F
  2. Slice the block in two lengthwise
  3. Place two phyllo sheets in front of you and sprinkle with thyme and lemon zest
  4. Place one piece of cheese on the edge closest to you and fold the sheet so that you end up with a nice cheese pocket.
  5. Lightly brush it with olive oil from all sides and place on a wire rack
  6. Repeat it with the second piece of cheese
  7. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan and fry the squares from each side until golden brown (this won't take long!)
  8. Place back on the rack and put it in the oven. Make sure to have a baking tray underneath to catch any melting cheese!
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes 
  10. Serve hot with a drizzle of maple syrup, a sprinkle of sesame seeds and more thyme.
