Baked Feta with Pickled Onions

Not just for crumbling in a salad, turn feta into a main dishs.

Who doesn’t like feta but have you ever had it baked? If you haven’t you need to give it a go, it takes it to the next level!!


It’s a wicked little side dish or lunch. It’s Soooooo good, make sure you have some bread for mopping up all the goodness.


  1. In an ovenproof dish add the tomatoes, the 2 tbsp of oil, 1 tbsp of the vinegar, the oregano then season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  2. Sit the feta on top, arrange the olives around it, drizzle with a bit of extra virgin olive oil and bake in a preheated oven set at 180℃ for 15 minutes.
  3. Whilst that's in the oven make a very quick  pickle. In a bowl add the sliced onion and pour in enough vinegar to just cover them. Add a pinch of salt and the sugar and mix well. Have a little taste and if it's too tart add a little more sugar. 
  4. Once the feta is done take out of the oven, sprinkle with some extra oregano, chilli flakes to taste and top with the pickled onions.
