Let Your Friends Try This Recipe!

Why we love it:

Was this inspired by TikTok? Yes, probably. No shame in it. Baking feta gives it extra soft creaminess and some golden brown edges. Instead of a sheet pan, you could do this in a casserole dish and just bring it out to the table that way - what a great potluck idea!


  • 8 ounces Feta Cheese (1 block)
  • 2 Zucchinis (any color)
  • 12 pound Red Skinned Potatoes (or any kind you prefer, small)
  • 1 Bell Pepper (Orange, Yellow or Red)
  • 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 bunch Fresh Thyme
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 4 cups Spinach (or other leafy greens - kale, arugula)

Cooking Instructions

  • 2. SHEET PAN

    Slice the feta in half to make it thinner; place in the center of the sheet pan.

    Dice the zucchini into 2 inch chunks. Slice potatoes into ½” pieces (this is so the 2 veggies will cook at the same time and not be over cooked).

    Dice bell pepper. Add all to the sheet pan with cherry tomatoes. Crush and add the 2 cloves of garlic. Add the thyme over the top. Drizzle with olive oil and salt.

    Roast for 20 minutes, stir the vegetables once halfway through.

  • 3. GREENS

    Remove the pan and toss the spinach with the hot vegetables; don’t disturb the feta too much. If you have greens like kale or chard, chop into small pieces first.

  • 4. SERVING

    Serve a big scoop of veggies with a wedge of feta over top.

How to Tweak This Recipe for Kids:

  • Depending on their love of veggies, you'll probably want to boil some noodles, pasta, or rice to accompany their meal. You can stir some of the hot feta into the noodles after draining if you like, or just butter and parmesan them
  • Adjust the veggies on the sheet pan so there are a few items they already like and let them try one or two things new

For Toddlers

  • Chop veggies into handheld sticks or small pieces for safe eating
  • Feta is great to try but you can add some mozzarella sticks or cheddar too
  • Consider adding beans or an egg for more protein, or perhaps hummus for dipping

For Choosy Eaters

  • Go heavy on the noodles and adapt veggies to their taste. Make sure to include one thing they like
  • Add some yogurt or a quesadilla
  • Add fruit
