Greek kefalotyri cheese browns and maintains its shape on the grill, and it's so flavorful it needs little more than lemon juice and black pepper to make it great.
Why this recipe works:
- Kefalotyri is a hard cheese that has a high melting point, making it well suited for grilling.
- Served like traditional saganaki, the dish is minimally finished with lemon juice and black pepper.
