Graviera Saganaki (Greek Fried Cheese)

Yesterday was a holiday in NL, so hubby had the day off and it was great to have him around.. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I wasn’t sure what I was going to make so I asked him if he had some sort of preference for lunch or dinner and he said appetisers.ย  Since, we love to eat cheese I made this fried greek cheeseย  with a few more appetisers instead of a main dish.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย 

I used Graviera cheese for this recipe, but keep in mind you can also use Feta Cheese if your not able to findย  Graviera or Kefalotyri using the exact same steps.ย  I was watching a cooking show a while back and the Chef was makingย  Saganaki with a soft Italian Cheese. The show was based in NY andย  he mentionedย  both greek cheeses and the stores that your able to find these productsย  which was great to hear.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

All these cheeses are eaten hot because they melt andย  taste so good, especially when it is topped off with fresh lemon juice. ๐Ÿ™‚

So good!! ๐Ÿ™‚



  • 2 piece of Graviera Kefalotyri or Feta Cheese
  • 6 tablespoons of All Purpose Flour
  • 2 medium Eggs
  • 5 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon juice


  • In a skillet add the olive oil and warm to medium heat.
  • 1 piece of Graviera Cheese or Feta Cheeseโ€ฆ(you can use any type of cheese that melts for this recipe)
  • Whisk eggs
  • Coat cheese with egg batter on all sides.
  • Place coated cheese in flour and coat with flour on all sides.
  • Place into skillet and cook until all sides turn in a golden brown color.
  • This should be eaten hot so once it has been cooked, place into a plate and top with lemon juiceโ€ฆ.:)
