Baked Feta Cheese With Onions, Red Pepper & Tomatoes

“We went to the Greek Island of Kos and had this as a starter in a restaurant - we loved it! When we got home I had a go and made it myself. It can be served as a side dish too.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7
  2. You will need two individual serving dishes that can go into the oven.
  3. De-seed and cut the bell pepper length ways into 3 cm strips.
  4. Brush the pepper slices in a little oil and place on a preheated non stick baking tray and roast for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  5. Char the skin of the pepper slightly with a cooks blow torch if you think the skin isn’t looking nice and roasted. Put the peppers to one side.
  6. Now, in a saucepan, melt the butter and the olive oil.
  7. Slice the onion thinly and finely chop the garlic. Add the onion and garlic to the saucepan. Over a low heat, cook until soft but not coloured.
  8. Cut the feta cheese into 2cm cubes.
  9. Using individual serving dishes, layer the onions, with the thinly sliced tomatoes and the roasted red pepper slices.
  10. Top with the cubed feta cheese. Finish by sprinkling with the grated parmesan cheese. Sprinkle a pinch of paprika on top of each dish.
  11. Cover with aluminium foil (trying not to touch the cheese) and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until the feta starts to get a nice colour.
  12. Take care not to cook too much as it looks better if the feta stays in cubes.
  13. Serve with nice fresh crusty bread.
