These are wonderful Turkish feta phyllo pies. As is often the case with food made for parties, I didn’t get a picture of this. For pictures of this dish, and pictures of the rolling process, see here. I make mine differently, other than the shape, so here’s my version. The herbs can be varied, but mint and dill is a really great combination.
- 1 lb feta cheese
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp chopped dill
- 3 tbsp chopped mint
- 1/2 lb phyllo dough
- liberal quantities of olive oil
Mash together the cheese, egg, and herbs. Take a long thin rectangular piece of phyllo (I typically cut a sheet in half), or perhaps two layered, depending on thickness, and brush with oil. Put a little filling at one end, and roll up into a cigar shape, tucking in the ends to prevent leaking fillings. Place on an oiled baking sheet, and brush with more oil. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until golden.
