Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Feta cheese comes in flavored as well as plain varieties. Using flavored cheese reduces the need for extra seasoning. Look for flavored feta, such as tomato basil, in the deli or dairy case. If you choose a flavored feta, eliminate the dried dill weed and nutmeg in this recipe.
