Savory Greek Cheese Cazuelas

© Katherine Stetson

This recipe is cooked and served in the same dish; an authentic 4.5 inch cazuela.

For each cazuela:

  • 3 finger-sized logs of Kasseri cheese
  • 1 teaspoon cognac
  • 1 teaspoon nonpareil capers
  • 1 garlic clove, minced, optional but recommended
  • generous grindings of black pepper
  • freshly chopped flat leaf parsley, for garnish
  • lemon weges, for garnish
  • toasted baguette slices, for garnish

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Place all ingredients into each cazuela and bake for 6-8 minutes or until bubbling.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with chopped parsley.  Serve immediately on an underliner with lemon wedge and toasted baguette slices. Be sure to caution your guests that the cazuela is very hot.
