Ingredients
  • 8 (1/2-inch) slices Kasseri cheese
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 lemons, juiced

Season both sides of the cheese with salt and pepper. Place the cheese in a shallow dish and cover with brandy. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
