December 05 2021

The holidays are upon us and we are on the lookout for some new festive recipes! To add a Greek twist to your Christmas table, serve feta ice cream.

I found this recipe on a great Greek cooking blog. "Katerinas Kouzina"Besides the feta ice cream, there are many other great recipes there to try.

In the original recipe, Katerina recommends serving the feta ice cream with red fruit jam or honey as a dessert or snack. I love combining cold with warm, so I made it with baked feta in filo pastry drizzled with honey. The perfect festive Christmas appetiser...

Let's start cooking:

The recipe: Feta ice-cream

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of Greek yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup of crumbed Greek feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup of cooking cream
  • 2 spoons of honey
  • (You will need a metal container for the freezer)

 

Instructions

  1. Put all the ingredients in the food processor. Mix them well until smooth. Let the mixture sit for a minute or so, then blend again.
  2. Pour the mixture into a wide metal container. Flatten it with the back of a spoon; it should not form a very thick layer. Freeze for an hour.
  3. Take it out of the freezer, break it into pieces and put it back into the food processor to keep it smooth.
  4. Serve with honey or homemade jam.       

        + 2 servings

        + Ready in 65 minutes

 

For the feta in filo pastry:

        + A couple slices of feta about 1 cm thick. (one per person)

        + Filo pastry 

        + one egg 

        1. wrap each slice of feta in a piece of filo pastry. Close the package with some beaten egg.    

        2. Bake the wrapped feta in olive oil a few minutes on each side until golden   

        brown.

        3. serve with feta ice cream drizzled with honey. 

        Καλή Όρεξη!

As you see on the picture, my ice cream had to be a little longer in the freezer or I should have used a bigger metal dish, but it was delicious! The combination is perfect. And what's also a big plus is that it's super easy to make! For the ice-cream, the food processor does all the work. And to wrap and bake the feta is as easy as it comes. 

Let me know if you will try it!

    Hi Inge! Yes, an ice cream maker is ideal! I use half a sheet of filo dough for each slice of feta. I wrap it around the feta so there’s 2 to 3 layers of filo dough around it. Let me know how it turned out!

    I made the icecream in a icemaker machine and then its very firm.
    I’m going to try the baked feta.
    Did you use only one layer of filo dough?
