Serves 6-8

Kasseri or kefalotyri are the usual cheeses used, but some have used parmesan, and a little goes a long way. As an appetizer or a snack a half pound of cheese can serve several people with some salad, bread, and wine.


1) Lightly coat a small cast iron pan or saganaki pan with cooking spray or oil.

2) Distribute the cheese evenly in the pan, and sprinkle with the paprika.

3) Bake in a preheated 425 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 minutes.

4) In a small pan toast the pine nuts in medium-high heat until golden brown.

5) Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the cheese with fresh lemon juice.

6) Top with toasted pine nuts and serve immediately.
