I love bricks in all their shapes and textures, and this Feta and Mint Bricks Recipe is no exception. They’re also called Briouates…
This recipe is delicious and perfect as an aperitif, or as a starter with a nice salad.
It’s a super-simple recipe to make once you get the hang of folding, in fact I show you the technique below and even have a video I made for another version.

I even have a sweet cigar-shaped version that I love, with almond powder, honey and orange blossom.
Incidentally, this reminds me that I haven’t really explained why some of the corners of my feta-mint bricks are adorned with sesame seeds…
It’s a decorative element, but it also adds a little sweet-salty touch that I like. I warmed up some honey and then dipped a corner of my bricks in the sesame seeds.
