Serving this TikTok sensation over crusty bread instead of pasta turns this delicious combination of ingredients into a finger food. No forks required. Here's my game day take on this trending dish.

Ingredients:

  • 2 thick slices of feta cheese
  • 2 cups of grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup of assorted olives. If you dont like olives (there are many of you, I've learned) but still want something briney, try canned artichoke hearts, strained
  • 5 sprigs of fresh thyme, or your desired herb
  • 2 Tb Hot honey such as this one OR 2 Tb regular honey and 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • The zest from half of a lemon
  • Salt, pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1 loaf of Bread, such as Italian bread, cut into pieces or slices
Kill them with freshness

Preheat oven to 400F. Place feta into a baking dish. Surround the feta with tomatoes and olives and arrange thyme sprigs over the top. Drizzle hot honey onto the feta, then sprinkle with lemon zest and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle olive oil all over. Bake on the lowest oven rack for 20 minutes.

While Feta is baking, prepare your bread. Place sliced bread on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and place in the oven on the middle or upper rack. Peek (without openeing the oven) every few minutes, until bread is crusty but not burnt. Use your oven light for this! Don't let the heat escape.

When feta is done cooking, discard thyme sprigs and use a fork to smash and stir the feta, tomatoes, and olives. Make sure to do this while it's still hot so the feta is still very soft. Smash as much or as little as you'd like! If you want a smooth spread-like consistency, do a lot of smashing. For something chunkier, like mine, keep the smashing to a minimum. Use a slotted spoon to transfer mixture into a bowl, leaving behind most of the liquid that came out of these moist ingredients while cooking.

Serve alongside that delicious crusty bread, and enjoy the Football. Or whatever you're watching these days.

These ingredients on their own are quite simple but create a complex, incredible burst of flavor when combined. Don't skip the hot honey.
