When was the last time you ate a Potato and Feta Cheese Souffle or any souffle at that! Potatoes and feta for a Feta Friday dish,  heaven…  If you’re true to the Greek traditions, Greek Lemon potatoes are the best, most ordered, and best remembered than any other! Ask anyone. Then to use feta with it- this takes it over the top. Yes I know souffles are mostly French in origin, this is my Greek twist I love adding to my recipes. Simple pantry ingredients makes this souffle easy to prepare, and a challenge to most of us to make. This can also be made in a large souffle dish. This makes 6-8 individual servings.
