  • Fresh Oregano

Directions

This is traditionally served as a light lunch, an appetizer, or as part of a meal. Saganaki dishes take their name from the pan in which they are made. A sagani is a two-handled pan that is made in many different materials. In the store, look for a small cast iron skillet, or even an oval au gratin dish. Saganaki is always served on small heated plates.

  1. Cut slices of cheese about 1/2 inch thick
  2. Mix SpicyGreek® Vegetable Blend into flour and lightly dust each piece.
  3. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat, and sear each slice in approximately two tablespoons of oil until golden-brown on both sides
  4. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice over each slice
  5. Sprinkle each piece with fresh oregano
  6. Serve piping hot.
