Saganaki – breaded cheese with salad

White cheese (brine cheese, feta cheese) also tastes good on its own. When fried and breaded, it has both a crispy and soft texture and is ideal as a delicious snack or a spicy addition to a fresh salad.


3 tbspbreadcrumbs
1-2 tsp Zatar spice mixture (thyme, sesame seeds, oregano, black cumin seeds)
some dried Nane mint
some hilli flakes (Pul biber)
2 tbsp flour
1 egg, whisked and beaten
200g Beyaz peynir (white cheese) cut into 4 equal slices
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- seasonal lettuce
1 tbsp lemon juice
some salt
some ground black pepper
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil



Mix breadcrumbs with spices. Place flour, egg and breadcrumbs in 3 separate dishes. Dip the cheese in flour, then the egg and finally in the breadcrumbs.


Heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Fry the breaded cheese pieces on each side for 4-5 minutes until golden-brown. Drain on kitchen towels.


Toss lettuce in dressing and place in a large bowl. Drape the cheese pieces over the lettuce.
