"Cheese - milk's leap toward immortality." -Clifton Paul Fadiman
The sweet umami flavor of the caramelized shallot goes perfectly with the sharp, salty taste of the feta cheese. Serve this topped with a poached egg for a perfect Sunday brunch dish.
The great thing is the tartness of the capers and lemon juice along with the other rich flavors helps reduce the amount of added salt you need to make the dish really delicious and balanced.
