No, I’m not suggesting pre-loading, pre-drinks fashionable of late with the uni fraternities 😉 Just a Cava or two in the sunshine with friends before Sunday lunch. Obviously, it’s good to add a nibble or two, something savoury and salty gets the taste buds going.

As the sun finally decided to put its hat on at the weekend, Sunday morning was busy with gardening, pruning and maintenance after a long period of cold and wet weather.  Like normal we were rushing against the clock, as we were off to lunch at friends in Comares.  Along with a few bottles of vino, I always like to take some canapés, tapas or as I like to call them Foo-Faas, so I needed to create something speedily and tasty.

These Feta Filo Fingers were perfect, quick and easy to make, and everything in my store cupboard and fridge.

 Feta Filo Fingers.


Filo Pastry

Block of Feta

Zest of an orange & Lemon

Fresh Thyme

Local Honey

Melted butter

Poppy seeds

Local honey from Colmenar


Slice Feta lengthways into fingers.

Lay-out 3 layers of filo in a rectangle just slightly wider than the feta.

Place the Feta to one end, scatter over lemon and orange zest a sprinkle of thyme and a drizzle of honey.

Tuck the two sides of filo over and then roll up to create a finger.

Brush with melted butter and sprinkle over poppy seeds.

Place on a lined baking sheet and bake in the oven 180c for approx 10-15 mins until golden brown.
