This baked feta cheese is a simple Greek-inspired appetizer that’s ready in under 25 minutes. Serve with warm pita or crusty bread!


  • 8 to 10 cherry tomatoes*
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 10 Kalamata olives
  • 4 to 5 ounce block of feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Kosher salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half and add a few pinches kosher salt. Finely mince the garlic. Chop the parsley.
  3. In a small oven-proof dish, place the tomatoes, garlic, parsley, and Kalamata olives, then top with the feta cheese. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the dried oregano.
  4. Bake for about 18 minutes, until the feta cheese is warm and soft. Serve immediately with crackers, pita, or bread.


*Note that the portion size is a modest appetizer for four. For a more substantial portion, the recipe is easily doubled.
