Why we love Air Fryer-Sesame Crusted Feta

We are so in love with this recipe! We think it’s a great mixture of flavors and textures and a perfect snack to tide you over between meals. It’s also really great if you’re looking for an appetizer that’s delicious, satisfying, and kind of different!

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 it. And they’ve got a perfect crunch thanks to the air fryer!

What Air Fryer Sesame-Crusted Feta tastes like

Of course, this recipe strongly matches the flavor of feta — which is a strong, tangy, slightly salty one we think is divine. But that’s enhanced by the nuttiness of the sesame seeds and counteracted by the sweetness of the honey.

Plus, the 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 mitigated by the sweetness of the honey. 

What equipment you need for Air Fryer Sesame-Crusted Feta

All you really need for this recipe is an air fryer! That’s a sort of portable convection oven that can sit on a countertop and cooks food by circulating hot air around a basket in which the food sits. It’s the perfect combination of baking and frying, because it’s speedy and makes the food crunchy and crispy, but it doesn’t use a lot of oil.

If you don’t have an air fryer, you can still make this recipe! Just bake it at 400 degrees F. for 10 minutes.
