Why This Recipe Works
We wanted to create an appetizer that would make warm, briny feta cheese the star. We decided to call on the intense heat of the broiler to create a browned exterior on the feta. To keep things simple, we patted ½-inch-thick slabs of feta dry, which encouraged maximum browning. We seasoned the cheese with red pepper flakes and pepper to balance the richness of the cheese. A drizzle of olive oil and a shower of fresh parsley completed our simple appetizer.
