It is a recipe from Palermo, also called ” Ficatu ‘ri setti cannola”.



Do not slice the cheese too thin. Brown the crushed cloves of garlic in a nn-stick frying pan; remove them and cook the caciocavallo at low flame, turning over the slices a couple of times. As soon as the cheese has melted pour the vinegar and sprinkle with pepper and oregano. Cook for a few more seconds.
