These tirokroketes are great to make, especially for parties!

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated kasseri cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Olive oil, for frying
To make the tirokroketes, you will need to combine the feta, kasseri, cumin, and pepper to the bowl of the food processor and pulse until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until cold, which should take about 2 hours. Roll into a ball and place on a plate in a single layer. Pour oil into a fry pan until it covers about 1/2 inch. Set the heat to medium and let the oil heat. Add the flour to a small dish, pour the milk into a small bowl, and spread the breadcrumbs into a small plate. Roll one ball of cheese into the flour, dunk it into the milk, and then roll it in the bread crumbs. And then all you need to do is fry!!

Its grilling season!

I’m so excited! This is the first day that I’ve been able to get outside and start grilling. I made some chicken, pork chops, and beef tenderloin seasoned with lemon and oregano. Is anyone else grilling this summer? 😎

How long can you store phyllo in the freezer for?

I've been stocking up on phyllo from the Greek supermarket for quite some time… about six months in the freezer. How long will it stay fresh for? And when will I need to use it by? If anyone has advice I would really appreciate it.

How to choose a fresh fish at the fish market!

Choosing a fresh fish is going to be key for your dish and for your health. I don't usually go to the fish market when I'm home, but when I'm on vacation, and especially in Greece, I love going to the market to get fresh fish from local fishermen. If you don't know how to pick fresh fish, here is a great tutorial on how!

How to make juicy Greek style lamb burgers!

This is one of my own creations that is so tasty! I'm not really the type to measure, so please take my advice with a grain of salt and use whatever measurements you feel comfortable with or that you find online. I like to make my lamb burgers with lean ground lamb meat. I find that lamb meat is pretty fatty and stays moist and doesn't need to have a high percentage of fat. I season the meat with salt, pepper, oregano, and rosemary. As an extra plus, I like to stuff the burgers with feta cheese or halloumi. The key here is not to overcook them because the meat will dry up and so will the cheese. For toppings, you can pretty much add whatever you like, I like sautéed onions and red peppers.
