Air Fried Baked Feta Cheese Appetizer Tips.

  • Make sure to add the oil and honey before the oregano and chili flakes (as these will wash off the other way round).
  • Feel free to vary the spices and herbs in your baked feta dip to your taste.
  • Serve with a lovely green salad to make it a more substantial meal.
