Cato's Cheese Bread


An old recipe for Roman bread.


  • 1 cup feta cheese, drained, crumbled, and packed into the measuring cup
  • 1/2 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 6 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Put the cheese into a medium size mixing bowl. Mash well with the fingers until it becomes a smooth, lumpless paste.
  2. Add the flour and mix well with the fingers.
  3. Add the beaten egg and mix well. The dough will be rather sticky.
  4. Divide the dough into two equal parts, then form two round, flat, 1/2 inch thick loaves. Lay each on three bay leaves set on a greased baking sheet, and bake in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until cooked through.
  5. Remove the loaves from the oven, spread the tops with the honey, and let cool.
  6. Remove the bay leaves before serving.
