When my husband and I were in Athens after our cruise we ate in a little Greek restaurant and ordered a dish called bouyiourdi (pronounced a lot like boyardee). It was a baked feta cheese appetizer served with toasted bread and pita bread. My husband and I loved it and after returning home I wanted to try to make it as well. It is a very easy appetizer to make.

- 1 block feta cheese
