Why we love air fryer sesame crusted feta

We are so in love with this recipe and you can probably guess why. If you have been making our recipes for a while then you know that we are obsessed with our air fryers. It is the easiest way to cook, and the results are always phenomenal.

Feta is also one of our favorite cheeses – so it’s no surprise that we’re head over heels in love with this recipe. This super simple recipe is such a fabulous mixture of flavors and textures.

Sesame crusted feta makes for an interesting side dish or snack to tide you over between meals. It’s also really great if you’re looking for an appetizer that’s satisfying and unique!

And what we really love about these feta squares is how the natural flavors of the feta are enhanced with the sesame and the honey drizzled over top. And they’ve got a perfect crunch thanks to the air fryer‘s magic!

What air fryer sesame crusted feta tastes like

If you have had feta before, then you can probably imagine what this tastes like. The tangy and slightly salty flavors of the feta are the hero of this recipe. It is a strong, and kind of funky taste, but we think it is absolutely divine. Just scroll down to the bottom of this post, and you will see we have handfuls of feta recipes here!

The strong flavor of the feta is enhanced by the nuttiness of the sesame seeds and counteracted by the sweetness of the honey. Plus, the crunchy sesame crusted feta cubes are creamy on the inside, crunchy on the outside, which is such a fun texture combination. Overall, this recipe tastes a lot like feta cheese does but is perfectly balanced by the sesame seeds and honey.

What do you need to make sesame crusted feta?

All you really need for this recipe is an air fryer! If you have an air fryer, then you know that it is life changing. The convection air cooking helps to get that perfect crunchy texture on the outside, while maintaining the moisture on the inside of the feta cubes. Air frying is the perfect combination of baking and frying! You have the speed from deep frying, but like baking you only need a little bit of oil! 

If you don’t have an air fryer, don’t worry. You can absolutely still make this recipe! Just line the sesame crusted feta cubes up on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes, tossing them once halfway through.

    I made the Air Fried Sesame Coated Feta appetizers. Really tasty and family loved them along side other appetizer dinner. Be sure to spray air fryer basket/tray with canola oil to help prevent sticking. Very good and different with the “hot honey drizzle”.
