Nadiya Hussain’s baked feta with chilli, honey and thyme recipe

“Baked with herbs and chilli, and served with a drizzle of honey, this feta is salty, sweet, spicy and herby,” says former Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, “making for the most delicious warm dip that really does everything.”

Baked feta with chilli, honey and thyme

(Serves 6)

2 x 200g packets of feta cheese
4 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for greasing
a large sprig of fresh lemon thyme, leaves picked
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon chilli flakes
200g salted crisp crackers, warmed in the oven
Honey, for drizzling
Slices of crusty bread, to serve


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas mark 6. Lightly grease a small roasting dish.

2. Put the feta cheese right into the dish and drizzle generously with the oil. Sprinkle over the thyme, oregano and chilli. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. For the last 5 minutes of baking, add the crackers to a tray and warm through.

3. Take the foil off the feta and drizzle over the honey. Get your warm crackers out and spread with the warm, salty, sweet, herby feta. Mop up that oil with warm crusty bread.
