Saganaki is a grilled cheese dish from Greece,
but also popular throughout the Middle East.
In the U.S., they also present it with flair,
lighting the ouzo-doused cheese on fire in the
saganaki pan, and putting it out with lemon.
Eat it with the bread provided, usually pita
bread, but sometimes other kinds. Cut off
small pieces and put it with small pieces of
bread. You can also skip the bread and eat
the cut cheese pieces with a fork. You
might also want to know that saganaki is named
after the pan, and is not a specific type of
cheese. Sometimes it is made with haloumi,
other times kasseri or other choices. The
different cheeses have different melting points
and flavors, but all are good. Follow it
up with baklava for dessert, a flakey
honey-walnut pastry dish, as seen above.
