I am not saying that binge-watching food is good for you if you eat it daily. But we all need some cheat days from time to time.
Honestly, we don't have as much time to watch TV or movies as we used to a while ago. However, on special occasions, we like to enjoy a good series and eat a snack while doing so.
One of our favorite bites for these days is feta crackers. And since we are celebrating Easter and have more spare time than usual, I thought to make some of my grandmother's salty goodies and tell you all about them.
This being said, if you want the whole meal and not just some feta cheese spread for crackers, here is what you have to do.
- Take a large bowl. Crumble the feta in it as best as you can. If you don't want to get messy, you can grate it. Anyway, I find it easier to simply crush it with my hands.
- Bring in the butter, lard, and cream and start mixing. Add the flour one cup at a time. You might need more or less than 500 grams. It really depends on how wet tour feta is.
- Start kneading until you get a smooth dough.
- Cover it in plastic and let it rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.
- Take the dough out of the fridge, cut it in half, and using a rolling pin, start rolling it. You want it 2-3 mm thick.
- Using a pizza cutter or a knife, cut strips of dough and place them on a tray lined with baking paper.
- Make an egg wash by beating an egg and mixing it with the milk.
- Using a kitchen brush, wash your cut crackers, then sprinkle salt and sesame seeds on them.
- Bake them in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (360 F) for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
- Take them out of the oven and place them on a wire rack to cool down.
- Repeat the process with the other piece of dough or freeze it for another time.
The last thing I want to tell you about today is a little thing about feta cheese. You probably already know that this is a traditional Greek cheese made from sheep milk.
But what you most likely are not aware of is how old this type of cheese is. Not only does goes all the way back to the 8th century BC, but it is even mentioned in Homer's Odyssey. So, yeah, good old cheese.
