How many people does it serve?

This should be an easy question to answer, but in South Africa, it’s complicated, due to our colourful multi-cultural rainbow nation.

  1. In an Anglo Saxon household, each pizza/meal should feed between 4 to 6 guests.
  2. In a Mediterranean, Ethnic or African home it could feed as little as 1 to 3 people for a single meal as food needs to be experienced in large quantities.
  3. If you’re of Scandinavian extraction, each meal could last you a month!

Then we need to look at your emotional state, as that is a determining factor when dealing with quantities.

  1. Have you had a terrible day with your boss?
  2. Did you fight with your spouse?
  3. Are your kids driving you insane?
  4. Is your wi-fi slower than the Groot Trek?
  5. Is the lockdown getting to you?
  6. Did that hot guy from the gym eventually whatsapp you?
  7. How are you doing with those skinny jeans?
  8. Is your mother-in law doing what mother-in laws do?
  9. What season of Game of Thrones are you watching?

All these contributing factors could influence the amount you will choose to eat; Ranging from “just a slice/bite” to “call in the kitchen Calvary we’re going down babies”!

YOU WILL NEED

SHOPPING LIST

  • 1 x mini bases – Happy Days
  • 3 to 4 slices soft feta – depending on how many guests-one per guest
  • Honey
  • Chilli flakes
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Fresh thyme
  • Olive oil
  • Flour
  • 2 x eggs
  • Juice of a lemon and zest
  • Sesame seeds (optional)

QUANTITIES OF INGREDIENTS

  • 1 x mini bases – Happy Days
  • 3 to 4 slices soft feta – depending on how many guests-one per guest
  • ½ x cup honey
  • ¼ x tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 x drops of Tabasco
  • sauce
  • 1 x tbsp fresh thyme
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Flour to dust feta
  • 2 x eggs whisked
  • ½ x juice of a lemon and zest
  • Sesame seeds (optional)

METHOD

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200 deg C.
  2. Now, place a saucepan on a medium heat and add the honey. The chilli flakes, the tobacco sauce and the fresh thyme. Allow for it to heat up so that the honey becomes runny and the spices infuse it with their zing.
  3. As it starts to boil, remove from the heat and set aside.

Now let’s start with the feta.

  1. For this you will need a large pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Let it heat-up.
  2. Once the oil has heated, take the feta squares/circles and dip them into your whisked eggs wash. Then immediately dip into your bowl of flour, removing the excess flour and then dip feta back into the egg wash and one last time into the flour and place in the pan for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Repeat this with the remaining feta slices.
  3. When each feta slice is done place on an oven tray, which you’ve pre-sprayed with non-stick spray.
  4. When all your feta slices are done both sides, place the feta slices in your pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, together with your slices of minis. We want the feta to bake from inside as well. For this recipe you don’t need your pizza base to be piping hot.
  5. Once feta and minis are done, drizzle the spicy honey. It doesn’t need to be re-heated as the heat from the feta will help loosen it up again. Add some lemon zest to your spicy honey as well as a squeeze of half a lemon and mix and drizzle over the feta slices that you’ve placed onto each mini base.
  6. As an optional extra you can sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds onto the honey.

And your fried, spicy honey feta is ready!

AND YOU THOUGHT FETA CAN ONLY BE USED IN A SALAD!
