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.. 🙂  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.  Since, we love to eat cheese I made this fried greek cheese  with a few more appetisers instead of a main dish.  🙂  

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

All these cheeses are eaten hot because they melt and  taste so good, especially when it is topped off with fresh lemon juice. 🙂

So good!! 🙂



  • 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 Cheese…(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 juice….:)
