Simple recipes let the very few ingredients used shine for themselves.
Making sure you use great quality ingredients is key to great flavour in this greek inspired recipe : fresh thyme, quality honey (fragrant thyme honey, or orange blossom honey would work well, but also your local all flower honey!) will make a difference, and pair amazingly with the sharp salty feta cheese and the crispy filo. Feeling adventurous? Try making your own filo (but make sur you've got a few hours and patience available as it can be tidious and quite technical!). —My Nomad Cuisine
sheets or ready made filo pastry (or homemade)

2 or 3 tablespoons

fresh thyme, leaves picked off the stems
In This Recipe
Brush some melted butter on a sheet of filo pastry, then place a stick of feta on one side, sprinkle with a few thyme leaves and roll the pastry around it to form a cigar, folding the edges in.
Repeat with the remaining filo and feta.
Heat the remaining butter in a pan on medium-high heat, and gently fry the cigars, until golden and crispy on all sides.
Transfer to a serving plate, drizzle with the honey, and sprinkle with the remaining thyme.
