  1. Cut the cheese into 1 cm thick slices.
  2. Heat the butter in a frying pan and put the slices in.
  3. Turn the heat down a little and let it cook for 1-2 minutes until it bubbles.
  4. It should not turn brown, but should look creamy and sticky.
  5. Sprinkle a little lemon juice on top and some black pepper and offer it with fresh bread.

In Greece the cheese is usually cooked in small frying pans, so they can be taken straight to the table.
