  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup sour trahana
  • 6 ounces feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/3 cup milk I use whole milk
  • salt to taste optional


  • Melt butter in a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat until lightly browned (be sure to keep a close eye on it, so it doesn't burn).
  • Stir in the water, trahana, and a pinch of salt.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for fifteen minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the trahana from sticking to the bottom. The trahana will absorb a lot of the water and will be soft. (See notes)
  • Add the milk and feta and cook for an additional five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat and let rest for five minutes.
  • Taste and add more salt if necessary. (See notes)
  • Serve with crusty bread and enjoy!


1. If you can feel the trahana sticking to the bottom while it's cooking, carefully scrape the bottom using a wooden or metal spoon.
2. Depending on the feta you use, you may not need much salt, if any. Taste and adjust as necessary.
