Saganaki (Flaming Greek Cheese) Oompa! Dangerous and Delicious!
Deb Crane @songchef
This is a very impressive appetizer. If you can not find a good Greek cheese as listed, you can also use Romano, but the Greek cheeses are great if available. You can get about a 1/2 lb chunk, or however big you need it to serve per guests. As in the picture, if you end up getting a chunk of Romano cheese, make it a 1/2 inch - 3/4 inch slice of cheese so it melts to perfection.
Be mindful when you light it! It is like Puff the Dragon! Be careful and enjoy!
This is not my picture. Its hard to get a good picture when you are lighting the cheese! ;)
