http://greenlitebites.com/2010/07/23/third-fabulous-feta-giveaway/

Time to announce the winner of last week’s Fabulous Feta Giveaway! Please congratulate Hila! She will be receiving the Athenos prize pack that includes the following items:

Fabulous Friday Feta Giveaway

  • ATHENOS Feta coupon
  • ATHENOS Feta “Shape Up Your Salad” recipe booklet
  • ATHENOS Feta water bottle
  • Life Time Fitness 1-month membership
  • Fit & Fresh salad container
  • Built NY lunch bag <—dude! I wanted one of these things for awhile now!

Unlike me, Hila grew up with feta.

We always had feta growing up. My mom would you use in savory bakes dishes and in salads!

I had SO much fun reading everyone’s feta stories! SO fun! I’ve been racking my brain for another fun question this week. We talked salads, we swapped feta stories, now I want to know your favorite non-traditional way to use feta. If you really only use it on salads try to break out of your comfort zone and get creative. What else can we use this versatile cheese for?

To enter simply leave a comment with your creative feta idea before next Friday and I will randomly select winner from the comments and announce when I launched the next weeks giveaway.

Good luck!

    I don’t know if this is creative or not. I thought it was. We never ate feta cheese growing up and just discovered it in the last couple years. A friend of mine told me about putting feta on watermelon. It is now my favorite summertime treat!

  2. Janice

    Feta is excellent on a greek pizza, use a pita, garlic a little olive oil, black olives(or really any olives you enjoy) and feta…Yummy!!!!

  3. Effie

    growing up my mom would make us “greek breakfast.” It was kind of like a fritatta. Cooked diced potatoes, a couple beaten eggs, and feta cheese mixed in. Still my family’s favorite breakfast!

  4. Danielle

    I’d like to try jazzing up a black bean burger with feta mixed into the “meat” – that sounds delicious to me!

  5. Dawn

    I LOVE feta just about any way…even just a chunk of it with some triscuits, drizzled with a little olive oil and maybe a few olives…yumm

  6. Erin

    How about in an omlet? Yum. I LOVE feta on just about anything…pizza, etc. I wonder how it would be on a baked potato. It’s a nice change from “regular” cheese.

  7. Tami

    I don’t know how creative this is but I put feta in my turkey burgers, it adds flavor, saltiness and moisture as it gets all melted when they cook. I add in oregano or basil and some garlic powder so simple but big on flavor!

    here is one of the ways I use feta…….

    Barb’s Spinach Chicken with Feta

    6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    1 (10 ounce) package fresh spinach
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    In medium bowl, mix spinach, garlic, feta cheese and mayonnaise until blended. Set aside.
    Spray a 9 x 13 glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray, arrange chicken breasts in pan. Spoon spinach mixture over top on chicken breasts, add salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink. Take foil off the last 15 minutes of baking.

    Not exactly creative, but I make flatbread pizzas with chicken, tomato, olives and feta, and I also use it in pasta salads. I love it because a little goes a long way flavor-wise!

  10. Erika @ Dr.TriRunner

    Well now that I bought a VITA MIX (!!!) I have an idea. For a soup. A cold… greek flavors soup. I’m imagining the awesome greek dishes I get at this great restaurant here in Minneapolis, and it would have tomatoes, red onions, and DELICIOUSNESS, all topped with some roasted red pepper feta. YES please!

  11. corrie

    Feta is great in almost everything! Maybe someone can figure out how to make an awesome brownie with feta… It’s nice in a couscous salad — with cucumbers, cumin, red onion.

  12. christine

    people have talked about fruit & feta and pizza & feta… i work at a pizza place and once made a pineapple and feta (instead of ham) pizza and it was delicious.

  13. kyree90

    Creative? You want creative? I leave that to you! But I’ve been known to make a nice Greek-type omelet with a filling of feta, tomato, onion, olives and mushrooms. Pretty tasty.

  14. Nicole

    I use feta, sauted spinach, onions and green/red peppers and stuff it into chicken cutlets (pounded thin) YUMMY!

    Nicole

  15. Johnna Duke

    I love a very simple bowl of chunked watermelon with feta sprinkled on top. And sometimes I like to dice up tomatoes, cucumbers and parsley, put in a bowl and squeeze the juice of a fresh lemon over it and mix, then drizzle with a little olive oil and mix again serve with bread and a nice chunk of Feta on the side, DELIC!

  16. Jan

    Twice baked sweet potato. Mash up the flesh of a baked sweet potato, add feta, spices (I used garlic, salt and pepper), a bit of finely chopped green pepper and onion. I mix it all right in the skin of the potato. Put back in the oven to melt the feta. YUM!

  17. Shannon

    I use feta in EVERYTHING! I mix it in with egg whites, put it on pizzas, salads (especially roasted beet salads – yum!) and to top off roasted veggies with dill. :)

  18. RG

    I make a roasted eggplant dish out of moosewood – marinate roasted eggplant with peppers, onion, tomato, basil; sort of a raw ratatouille. Feta’s great in there

  19. Angela

    I use feta in just about everything. One creative use is in quesadillas with grilled veggies. It’s a delicious and healthy way to clean out the fridge.

  20. Christina

    LOVE feta and use it constantly!!! I love it on a greek pizza with kalamata olives, basil and pepperoncinis. I also make a yummy garbanzo bean & bell pepper salad with balsamic vinaigrette that is delish with feta mixed in.

  21. JoeyfromSC

    I absolutely LOVE feta! I can eat it plain lol

    I love it in Greek grilled chicken salads..spinach salads, and on pizza!

    almost always, I like to pair it with olives..match made in heaven lol

    When I lived in Germany, I used to get baked feta and tomatoes from a takeout place there. After moving back, I decided to recreate it. I combine equal amounts of feta and diced, fresh tomato, add lots of chopped garlic, some dried oregano and drizzle with some olive oil. Then bake in a hot oven until hot. Serve with crusty bread or pita for dipping. Delish.

  23. Jen Drake

    well i have very simple tastes lol, i was lucky that when i was growing up my mom had feta in the house, and i have it either on a salad, sometimes just a nibble of it for a snack. but my fiance likes when i put it on pizza

  24. amy

    ive never really experimented with feta but what i have done is stuff it in a turkey burger and it was really good….it melted really nicely i made like a greek inspird stuffed turkey burger

  25. Josh Durant

    personally i love it on pizza, for some reason i don’t enjoy it “raw” but on pizza with sausage, yum!

  26. colleen

    I love buying the ready made pie dough (like pilsbury) and using a small biscuit cutter to cut out circles. I place them in a mini cupcake tin(to form a little pie cup) I make a mixture of feta, egg, and green onion. I place 1 sundried tomato in the bottom of each dough cup then place the cheese mixture on top about half way up. Top w/ one calmata olive then bake at 350″ till crust is golden brown. about 15 -20 mins soooo yummy

  27. Beth

    I love feta with fresh mint! I make a potato salad with red potatoes, peas, mint, and feta tossed in a vinaigrette… it’s been one of my favorite feta dishes lately.

  28. Traci

    I make veggie quesadillas, and use feta as the main cheese in them…very different from the traditional cheeses ppl use but SOOOOO delicious. Quesadillas with feta is super yummy!

  29. Cassie

    Feta is a MUST if I am going to eat a cucumber! Sliced thin, balsamic vinegar drizzled over, sprinkled with a little basil (fresh is best, but dried works too!) and feta crumbled over the top! A delicious, healthy, easy fresh snack!

  30. colleen

    I buy feta buy the block at the deli counter. I slice it about 1/4 inch thick ,bread it ( like i would a cutlet,beat an egg in one bowl, and put panko bread crumbs in another. dip in egg then in BC) place in hot oil and fry till golden brown. You can use the fried feta to top mixed greens or spinach salads, add to pastas, omlets, or even just eat it by itself or in a nice crunchy loaf of french bread. so good

  31. Brandi

    Like others was ‘late’ to discover feta. First had it on the diner greek salad then tried the diner Greek omelette-now I do a home rip off version with eggs, feta, some peppers and onions. Yum!
