This Baked Feta with Green Olives and Figs recipe is the perfect end-of-summer, welcome-to-fall appetizer. With only 5 minutes of prep time and a one-pan bake, this easy-to-prepare appetizer can be ready in about 25 minutes from start to finish.


  • 8 oz Greek block feta cheese in brine, brine discarded
  • 6 oz (1 cup) Black Mission figs, stemmed and halved
  • 5 oz pitted Castelvetrano olives
  • 50 g (4 tbsp) olive oil
  • Zest/peel of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp fresh Tarragon
  • Cracked black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celcius).
  2. In a medium broil-safe baking dish, add the drained block of feta cheese. Arrange the olives and figs around the block of feta.
  3. Drizzle the feta and ingredients with olive oil, then sprinkle the lemon zest, tarragon, and a few cracks of black pepper over the top.
  4. Bake on the middle rack for 15 minutes, then transfer to the top rack and broil on high for an extra 5 minutes. The feta should be soft and the figs lightly caramelized.
  5. Carefully remove the dish from the oven and let it cool slightly. Serve the Baked Feta with Green Olives and Figs warm with crackers or bread.
