Burek Recipe – Banitsa With Feta Cheese

Ingredients: 1 package of phillo pastry, 1/2 pound feta cheese, 5 eggs, 1/4 stick butter.

Recipe: Crumble the feta cheese and mix it with the eggs in a bowl. Melt the butter in a separate container. Unwrap the phillo sheets and place them on your kitchen counter. I usually use a double sheet for each individual roll, but you can use single if you prefer. Use a pastry brush and spread some butter over the phillo sheet, then spoon some of the cheese-egg mixture over it loosely and roll it into a long snake. Repeat with the other phillo until you run out of ingredients. Place all the burek rolls into a round baking pan and cook it in a preheated oven at 450 F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and cryspy. Let the burek stand out of the oven for 5-10 minutes covered with a kitchen towel before serving.
