This dish looks so impressive, so fancy, that it is hard to believe that it can easily be whipped together in a moment’s notice. The sweetness of the honey, paired with the saltiness of the feta and the crunch of the sesame seeds and nuts, creates a dish which is rich in both flavour and texture. Pretty impressive for a recipe which has only a few basic ingredients and can be ready in under 10 minutes. We wish everything in life was this easy, and this tasty!
We don’t know about you, but for us, mornings are a marathon. We are up early, and from the time that our feet reluctantly make contact with the floor, we are running. Whether we are tending to the pets, the kids, the spouses, or, imagine this…ourselves…it seems that the morning whizzes by. Getting out the door in time leaves us exhausted and ready for bed again, immediately.
Can you ever have too much of a good thing? We don’t think so. Tsoureki is one of those very good things, and like us, you may find yourself having an abundance of it at this time of year. Although we spent several hours baking loads of loaves which we then offered to family and friends, many of these family and friends presented us with their tsourekia. We broke even! How wonderful!
There are so many ways to enjoy tsoureki. We love to have a plain slice of tsoureki in the morning along with our Greek coffee. We also often enjoy a slice with a warm cup of mountain tea in the evening. It is something that we pick at when trying to decide what to make for supper, something we pack up for school snacks, and something we often turn to when we’re hungry…but not really. And then, often on the weekends which easily lend themselves to decadent breakfasts, we like to start our day with tsoureki French toast.
