And Now for My Recipe Suggestion for with Death On The Nile: Gebna Makelyah, which is an Egyptian oven-fried cheese served with pita bread.
5 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon flour
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 piece of pita bread, cut into six triangles
Preheat oven to 400°.
Place the cheese, flour, egg, and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Roll the mixture into six balls. If the mixture seems too loose, add a little more flour.
Pour the olive oil into an ovenproof skillet. Roll the cheese balls in the oil, coating them thoroughly. Bake 5 minutes, then use a spatula to flip the balls over. Bake an additional 5 to 7 minutes until golden brown.
Place on serving platter and sprinkle with juice from a lemon wedge. Serve warm with extra lemon wedges and triangles of pita bread.
Serves 6 Can be easily doubled or tripled, or the balls could be made smaller.
