step 1

Mix the egg, milk and olive oil in a small bowl.

step 2

Spread 2 sheets of filo pastry (stacked) and brush them gently with the egg mixture.

step 3

Divide the feta cheese in two pieces (cut vertically, approx 1.5 cm each) and place one of them towards the bottom of the filo, leaving enough space to cover the whole feta in the first wrap.

step 4

Start by wrapping the bottom part of the filo and brush it with the egg mixture.

step 5

Continue by folding the sides and also brushing them with the egg mixture.

step 6

Roll up the feta with the remainder of the filo pastry and keep brushing each side with the egg mixture as you fold.

step 7

Place them both on a baking tray covered with baking sheet, brush them with the egg mixture one last time and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200ºC (392ºF) for 20 minutes (or until golden brown).

step 8

In medium heat, roast the sesame using a non stick pan and stirring it for about 1-2 minutes, until it gets golden.

step 9

When ready to serve, drizzle a hefty amount of honey over the feta and finish it it of with the roasted sesame mixed with some black sesame seeds.
