Pan Fried Feta Cheese
Simple, fun snacks and appetizers are my go to weekend meals. Sure you can make a great meal out of a few snacks. Last weekend I made Tomato Jam and made this Pan Fried Feta Cheese to go along with it.
I made crostini from a french baguette that I sliced, brushed with olive oil, and baked for five minutes.
Let me tell ya, it was SOOOOO good!
My brother and sister came over and we didn’t even speak while devouring this, except for the occasional
“Oh My Gosh this is SO good!”.
How to make Pan Fried Feta Cheese
This is an 8 oz block of feta cheese.
It was a little on the thick side, so I sliced it in half.
Just flip it on it’s side and slice right through with a sharp knife.
And now you have two thinner blocks of feta 🙂
Set up your breading station just like this.
A cracked and beaten egg in one bowl.
And panko bread crumbs in another bowl.
Pour enough olive oil in a skillet to coat the bottom and set over medium heat.
Bread the feta by dipping in the egg first and then in the panko.
Gently flip the feta in each.
Then into the skillet with olive oil for about two minutes per side.
This Pan Fried Feta Cheese is best served right away.
It’s a great addition to a charcuterie board!
The perfect bite for us was the ooey gooey feta on a piece of crostini with either the Tomato Jam or spicy honey!

Pan Fried Feta Cheese is the perfect addition to any charcuterie board, serve with crackers or crostini along with spicy honey or any jam
- 1 8 oz block feta cheese
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
- olive oil (enough to coat the bottom of a skillet)
- Optional: crackers, crostini, spicy honey, jam
Cut the block of feta in half creating 2 thinner blocks of cheese, approx. half inch thick (pictures in post above).
Crack the egg into one bowl and beat with a fork. Put the panko bread crumbs in another bowl.
Pour enough olive oil to coat the bottom of a skillet and put the skillet over medium heat.
As the oil heats up put one block of feta into the egg, flip so both sides are coated and then into the panko and coat both sides.
Put the feta into the skillet and pan fry 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the other block of feta.
Serve right away with crackers, crostini, spicy honey, and/or jam if desired.
