As feta does not really melt, are there any warm dishes based on feta cheese besides some quiches?

I've had it in some warm dishes in the cafeteria at work, but i'm afraid I haven't a clue as to what they might have been. I'd like to see the results though! (also, you may want to switch this to community wiki, as there isn't one single answer. (well, there is, since you asked a yes/no answer, but people will probably want to provide various recipes....) –  TJ Ellis Sep 5 '10 at 17:27
HeDinges, recipe requests are not permitted here per the FAQ. I've edited your question into a "culinary uses" format that is acceptable, and converted it to Community Wiki since it calls for a "list of X". Thanks. –  hobodave Sep 5 '10 at 17:29
@TJEllis: Please try to use mod flags for things that should be CW. –  hobodave Sep 5 '10 at 17:30
@hobodave aha; i never clicked on "flag" before, on any SE site... I always figured it was just for reporting offensive content... (and I guess I've never seen someone mention flagging something as community wiki that wasn't a mod... hadn't realized that...) Good to know! –  TJ Ellis Sep 5 '10 at 17:59
@TJE: It's meant to prevent the perception that you're "badgering" the OP to convert to CW. This is common on SO, and viewed negatively. The mod attn flag just catches our eye and we can act on it. –  hobodave Sep 5 '10 at 18:03

Feta saganaki: slice a tomato, arrange slices in an ovenproof dish, drizzle some olive oil, some oregano, salt and pepper, top with feta and cook at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Serve with crisp toast of bread.

Shrimp and feta: Make a basic tomato sauce, add shrimp and feta and finish in the oven.

Feta with honey: coat feta with egg and breadcrumbs. Fry until golden brown. Drizzle with honey and serve.

Feta dip: Crumble feta with some yogurt, olive oil and cayenne pepper. Add everything to a food processor and combine to desire consistency. You can also add some red bell pepper to give it a distinctive red color and make it as spicy as you want.

The possibilities are endless.

Feta + spinach (+other things) in pastry is a common pattern.

Spanakopita -- feta and spinach in phyllo dough. –  Martha F. Sep 6 '10 at 2:45
Yes, but you can also eat it without the spinach (tiropita). –  Mien Apr 24 '11 at 6:22

In America, there are popular pizzas that use feta such as white pizza with spinach and feta and Mediterranean pizza.

I add feta cheese when I bake either salmon pizza or tuna and roasted peppers pizza, replacing part of the mozzarella. –  Julio Sep 9 '10 at 14:12

Try a warm pasta salad with Feta, there's a lot of combinations you can try.

Feta with bruschetta is really good. Greek salad. You can make date squares that are topped with feta cheese. Pasta with pesto and feta with garlic roasted with cherry tomatoes and some spinach. The options are endless.

Greek stuffed peppers: saute ground lamb with parsely, onion, and lemon zest. Add rice and toss with feta, then stuff peppers. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes (400F or higher).

Grilled veggie pizza: grill veggies and slice. Top pizza dough with hummus, layer sliced veggies, and top with feta and fresh basil or oregano. Grill until warmed through.

Fry it plain (maybe in a little bit of oil). The outside will be crispy, the inside soft, and all of it simple deliciousness.

You can make feta cheese omelette for breakfast, very delicious. Put cheese first, then mixed eggs and milk or without milk.
