Grilled Feta with Thyme

For the holiday a couple weekends ago, we hosted a BBQ in honor of my family being in town. Not only did we enjoy delicious food, but we also spent time on the patio, breaking in our new outdoor furniture and using the new grill. For appetizers, my mom made incredible guacamole, and I was set on making Grilled Feta with Thyme. This amazingly simple starter was first devoured two summers ago in the Hamptons, and I’ve been wanting to make it ever since. The feta is seasoned only with olive oil, fresh thyme, salt and pepper, and then grilled until the cheese is warm and spreadable. The cheese, spread on top of soft pita, is a perfect combo. I love when something so easy is also so delicious!
