    Bergy's Note:

    This is wonderful to serve as an appetizer, serve lots of lemon wedges and I like crisp Pita Bread Pieces. If you cannot get the Greek cheese you may in a pinch use Italian Provolone - I had to use this because I didn't plan far enough ahead to get the good Greek Cheese. Evelyn/Athens posted a link to this recipe (off Zaar) and when I searced Recipezaar I could not find one like this. Thanks Evelyn. The recipe is simple and very good.

      This is my favorite way to make Saganaki. So tasty. Its Cypriot as well as I use haloumy (haloom in Arabic) cheese and cut them a slight bit thinner. A very tasty meze we eat for breakfast with bread or rice crackers to be gluten free!
