Pot Baked Feta is an easy to make, smoky, and spicy appetizer from Thessaloniki. It makes a great choice for summer feasts, but it can easily substitute lunch as well. The Greek name for this dish is “bouyiourdi”. At the times of the Ottoman Empire, a “bouyiourdi” was the written order of an officeholder. We don’t know how or why, but in contemporary Greek the word is synonymous with one of the most popular mezzes of the country.
