The Third Fabulous Friday Feta Giveaway!

Posted by 5 years ago 67 Comments

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 love feta! Recently love to put it on my fries, I like to bake them then add some garlic salt and then pile on the feta. They are so good together! luckysluna(at)yahoo(dot)com Reply

    We use feta on homemade pizzas all the time! My favorite one is made with pesto and fresh tomatoes. Reply

    I like it on just about anything. Salads, burgers, pizzas, egg scrambles, etc. There is a great WW recipe with spinach, mushrooms, couscous, and feta, that may be my FAVORITE way Reply

    My favorite is stuffed chicken... pound a chicken breast flat (about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick), put spinach, feta, and roasted red pepper in the center. Fold the chicken over and coat with a mixture of bread crumbs and fresh herbs. Bake in the oven for about 30-40 minutes. Yum! Reply

    We went to GReece on our honeymoon, and when we were there we had the best feta "spread". Take a block of feta (not the all crumbled up kind)and pour olive oil, dried oregano and pepper on it, wrap it up in foil and throw on the grill to soften up. So good on bread...... Reply

    Feta cheese, some garlic and a little bit of chives in a food processor. Amazing dip for pita chips! Reply

    I'd love to add it to spaghetti sauce...mix it in with some ground turkey, zucchini, squash, and tomatos. Use that instead of parm cheese Reply

    I put feta on my baked potato fries. I bet they would taste delicious on baked sweet potatoes, topped with some aioli. And I also put feta on pasta with grilled chicken, some stir-fried spinach, onions, garlic, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, a bit of basil and a dash of lemon juice. Noms. Reply

    I toss in on chicken that is broiled with marinated artichoke hearts - soooo yummy. My cousin also made a London broil, sliced it up and tossed it with sauteed baby spinach, peepers and onions and then melted feta in the pan so it got creamy in parts OMG delic.!!! Danielle Reply

    I don't know how non-traditional it is, but my husband makes a mean Caesar chicken wrap, using feta in place of parmesan. Throw some kalamata olives in that thing, some baby romaine, and it is bangin! It seems to be even better after wrapping it up in plastic wrap for an hour or so (letting the flavors mingle), and using it as picnic fare. Mmmm! The best! Reply

    I like to mix herb feta with fat free cream cheese and garlic and stuff into the mini peppers you can buy in the produce section of trader joes. Then spray them with a little olive oil and pop those little stuffed peppers into the oven (I just use my toaster oven so I don't heat up the kitchen) for 10-15 minutes or until warm. sooooo yummy. thanks roni! love your blogs!!

    I always seem to have feta with spinach in some form. Our favorite pizza, whether homemade or bought is feta, spinach, and tomato. One local pizza place calls it The Hippie and drizzles olive oil and spices, sooo yummy! I make the same 3 ingredients in omelets often too, or will order them out. Feta in a greek pita is great too.
