Bank Holiday Brunching
There’s no rush. Plenty of time to take it slow. It’s a bank holiday kind of day. To celebrate the very first bank holiday of the year we’re bringing you a delicious recipe to enjoy at any point of the day, you choose.
So kick back, relax and enjoy some good flavours, and good times.
Slow-baked Feta on Sourdough (for 4 people)
2 packs of good quality feta (crumbled)
Juice of ½ - 1 limes
Sprinkle of chilli flakes
6 sprigs of thyme
Sourdough loaf (sliced)
Rocket or salad leaves
Foil (enough to make a parcel)
Agave syrup (optional)
1. Preheat your oven to around 220C/200 fan
2. Place the blocks of feta in a foil-lined ovenproof dish, crumbling slightly and add a good drizzle of olive oil.
3. Squeeze the juice of half a lime over the cheese and grate some of the zest for extra flavour if you wish.
4. Remove the thyme leaves from their stalks and sprinkle over the dish, along with the chilli flakes.
5. Add a little more olive oil and twist the foil together to make a parcel.
6. Bake for 20 minutes.
7. In the meantime, grill your sourdough toast and add to the plates, topped with a layer of the rocket or salad leaves.
8. When the feta has baked, divide between the four beds of salad leaves and sourdough, and add additional lime or chill, to your taste.
9. For some sweetness to balance your spice, try drizzling a very small amount of agave before you dish up the feta on the plates.
Fancy cooking outdoors? For a firepit alternative, create four foil parcels, separating the feta into equal pieces, add the oil and ingredients and add to a griddle. Allow the feta to melt and the flavours do their thing. Add olive oil to the griddle and lightly toast the sourdough before adding the leaves and topping with the feta goodness.
