Where Can I Buy Mizithra Cheese?

Now a days it seems that every store has a specialty cheese section! Look there!! I have even seen it at Costco. I like to buy it in a small wedge, grate it and freeze what I don’t use, so I always have some on hand.

This is an easy go to recipe when you have company stop by or have a house full of hungry teenagers and 10 of their friends, which is a natural occurrence around here! You will impress them all with your cooking skills!!!

Serve this with some GARLIC BUTTER BROCCOLI or a simple SIDE SALAD.
