Tiropita – my greek breakfast

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 !!!

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).
