Baked Feta with Honey and Thyme

This addicting baked feta cheese with honey and thyme is packed with flavor. Serve it as an appetizer or alongside dessert for an option that’s both savory and sweet!



Ingredients
8 ounces good quality feta cheese, patted dry (see notes)
1 1/2 to 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 1/2 tablespoons honey, plus more for serving
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, or to taste
Optional: a light sprinkling of za’atar
For serving: pita or naan bread, toasted and cut into wedges
Instructions
Place an oven rack on a shelf near the top third of the oven, then preheat to 400 degrees Brush a thin layer of olive oil inside an 8-ounce ramekin, small casserole dish, or any oven-safe baking pan. Place the feta on the dish and drizzle with 1 1/2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon olive oil (see notes), making sure the entire top is covered (you can optionally brush it down the sides). Bake until the cheese is warm and soft but not melted, around 10 minutes.
When the feta is almost finished baking, thin out the honey using either the microwave (around 10 secondor a double boiler, until it can easily be spread with a pastry brush.
Remove the feta from the oven and preheat the broiler. Brush the honey evenly all over the feta, then broil until the top of the cheese browns (a little char around the edges is delicious as well), anywhere from 3-7 minutes (mine took 5). Watch the broiler carefully; oven models vary greatly in intensity. If your broiler has a low and high setting, you can alternate between both to control the browning.
