Everyone has tried the baked feta trend by this point but this is next level. We created this dip in Greece this summer after we had it a taverna in Athens. One of our favorite cheesy appetizers plus its low carb.
Where does Bouyourdi Dip come from? The dish originated in Thessaloniki (Northern Greece). Its a basic appetizer or meze of tomatoes, peppers, Kasseri cheese and feta cheese.
Kasseri cheese is a Greek cheese not easily found in other locations so you can sub in mozzarella – shredded or sliced. I used banana peppers here but any type of pepper is acceptable. Be generous with the olive oil and with the dried oregano.
