It’s been for-EVER since I have made Saganaki or Flaming Greek cheese. It is really easy to make.
Finding the cheese is the tough part 😉
Cut the cheese (giggle) in 1/2 inch (1 CM) slices – Kasseri or Kofalotiri cheese works best.
Put your pan on high heat, add olive oil and get your cheese ready.
Cut a lemon in half and pick out the seeds. Pour a shot of Brandy. Drink. Pour one more for the cheese…
I dredge the cheese through some whipped egg and lightly flour them. Drop in pan carefully.
Brown on both sides, about 3 minutes each side.
After browning, pour the brandy shot over the cheese and ignite!! Yell “OPA”
Put out the fire with the lemon.
Serve with crunchy French bread. YUM!!
