Gebna Makleyah (Egyptian Oven-Fried Cheese)
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
8 ingredients
4-6 servings
I found this recipe on the Food By Country website which stated that "in Egypt, cheese with bread is frequently served at meals. Here, oven-fried cheese is served with lemon wedges and pita triangles." You can easily vary the recipe to suit your tastebuds by adding tomatoes or other vegetables, or vary the cheese by using a traditional Egyptian white cheese, such as gibna beyda, instead of crumbled feta.
