This recipe was inspired by a contest that I have entered with Dorothea Tsakiris-Pirpiris. It was the Triscuit Summer Snack Off with Martha Stewart. This challenge was to use Triscuits and Cherry Tomatoes in a recipe and submit for approval into the contest.
Well, I decided to make an appetizer stack using Fire Roasted Tomato and Olive Oil Triscuits, cherry tomatoes and some of the Greek Salad favorites to stack for this really delicious appetizer. The best part is I took the Triscuits and put them in the Cuisinart and then coated the feta with Greek yogurt then coated with the Triscuit crumbs. The best part is I then fried the feta in olive oil until golden and soft. cut it into pieces and placed on the stack.
If you love salad with fried goat cheese, then you will love this. You get the Wow factor and the amazing flavor combo of Triscuit coated Feta Cheese!

Triscuit Coated Fried Feta
Heat Olive Oil on med heat, then add the feta and let brown, cooking about 2 min on each side. Carefully remove Feta from pan and put on a cutting board, let cool a couple minutes and then cut into 12 small squares. Line up the twelve Triscuits, place a cucumber half on top of each one, then top with the fried feta. Take a long frilly toothpick and thread the olive, the cherry tomato, and the peperoncini to the very end of the toothpick. Now go right through the middle of the feta down through the Triscuit with the toothpick, holding everything into place. Delicious, your friends will certainly be impressed!
