  1. Step 1

    Cut feta cheese into squares or rectangles about 1/2 inch thick.

    Crack eggs into a bowl wide enough to fit the feta and beat lightly with a fork. Place flour on a plate. Place sesame seeds on a second plate.
  3. Step 3

    Coat each piece of feta in flour, then eggs, and then sesame seeds. Be sure to coat well with each step, so all sides are covered.
  4. Step 4

    Heat enough olive oil to shallow fry in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, carefully add the feta and fry until nicely golden, about 5 minutes. Flip and fry on the other side, about 5 minutes more. Drain on paper towels to remove any excess oil. Drizzle honey on top and serve warm.
