Does Feta Cheese Melt?

If you've ever wondered whether feta cheese can be used as a melting cheese in recipes, the answer is both yes and no.

Feta cheese has a unique texture that makes it semi-soft and crumbly, and as a result, it does not melt like traditional cheeses.

While feta cheese will soften when exposed to heat, it retains its shape and does not turn into a creamy consistency like mozzarella or cheddar. However, feta cheese can still add a delightful taste and texture to dishes when crumbled or used as a topping.

So while it might not be the best option for melting, feta cheese is still a versatile ingredient in various culinary creations.
