In the morning all roads lead to bakery 🙂 and more if you are in Greece. The best time is after all night party, early morning with your shoes in your hand and so tired getting close to backery that seem closed but the smell of bread is calling you come closer and knock the doors.
Knock – knock-knock…when suddenly the doors had burst open and the smile face of baker had appeared. At 5 a.m. in the morning !!!!! What a blessing !!!
The best breakfeast ever !!!! I like tiropita, bugatsa, spanakopita !
What is tiropita ? Tiropita or tyropita is a Greek layered pastry food , made with layers of buttered phyllo and filled with a Feta cheese-egg mixture.
What is bugatsa ? In Greek: μπουγάτσα με κρέμα, pronounced boo-GHAHT-sah meh KREH-mah. My favorite Greek street food and snack, bougatsa is traditionally filled in with cream.
What is spanakopita? Spanakopita or spinach pie . Filled on with chopped spinach, feta cheese, onions or scallions, egg, and seasoning.
so let’s go to cook 🙂
- puff pastry sheets or phyllo dough
- 6 to 8 oz crumbled feta cheese
- about 1 cup (8 oz) cottage cheese
- about 1 cup (8 oz) cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
this amount of filling will make a generous amount of appetizers, if you want a smaller amount, make half of the recipe
Preheat oven to 200º C
Mix the cheeses and eggs together in a bowl until well-combined.
Decide what size appetizer you would like and cut the puff pastry into equal sized pieces (use the phyllo as directed on the package).
Place a spoonful of filling onto the pastry, and wet the edges.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown
Good apetit !!!
