This is one of my favorite cheese but I usually eat it with bread and cold cuts or in a toast (panini in America). Are there any recipes with graviera? This is what it looks like for reference

You could make a lovely au gratin, even though its not a Greek recipe you can make its little more Greek style by adding oregano and garlic

The Cretan graviera Greek cheese is amazing (great suggestion to use this cheese in making au gratin potatoes):

Saganaki with graviera is amazing, also you can use it grated on pasta bakes. We usually add it to bechamel sauce for pasticcio and moussaka.

Since you like it uncooked, try some honey drizzled on top!

This cheese is great because of how it melts. I would experiment with it. I made a grilled cheese sandwich with it once and it was AMAZING.
 

How to make Greek meatballs with bulgar

This is the process for making the meatballs with bulgar. It's one of my favorite dishes and I like to make an extra batch and freeze it so I can eat them later :)

Add meat, 2 tablespoons of the parsley, scallions, bulgur, egg, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 cloves of the minced garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper to a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until mixture is well combined. You can also use your fingers to mix it. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 – 4 hours to let the flavors set.

Remove bowl from the refrigerator and shape into balls of about 1-2 inches thick. Your goal is to make them a consistent size. Place the balls on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator.

Add the rest of the olive oil to a deep skillet and set the heat to medium. Saute the onion for about five minutes or until the onions are soft. Add the rest of the garlic and saute for about a minute until the flavor of the garlic releases. Add the wine and cook for one minute. Stir in the tomatoes with their juices as well as the cinnamon stick and water and stir the mixture with a wooden spoon. Slowly add the meatballs so they don’t fall apart. The sauce should be deep and the meatballs should be covered.

Cover the skillet and bring the mixture to a boil. Drop the heat to a simmer after it boils and cook for twenty minutes or until the meatballs are cooked all the way though. Sprinkle the meatballs with remaining parsley just before serving.

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup finely chopped, fresh parsley
  • 4 scallions, finally chopped
  • 1/2 cup bulgur (uncooked)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup Greek olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 large onions, halved and sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 16 ounces canned, diced tomatoes
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 cup water

Another dish idea! Pan fried chicken breast with lemon pasta

This is a little twist on an Italian dish with Greek flavors. I love lemon, oregano and garlic, so I decided to make it into a healthy pasta with chicken breast that’s lightly fried in olive oil. What do you think? 😊
