There are all types of beurek, burek, or börek, within the Center East: meat beurek, cheese beurek, Armenian beurek, Turkish beurek, Lebanese beurek … I’m undecided precisely which beurek is that this one, however let’s name it beurek for busy bees!
I realized to make this model from my mother. She in all probability made it when she didn’t have time to make particular person cheese beurek, rolled in brick dough, and fried one after the other. This technique is means faster and fewer greasy (type of). What I like is that you could put together it prematurely – within the morning, for instance – preserve it within the fridge, and bake it when desired within the night. It’s potential to freeze it for as much as three months.
Serving: 6 individuals
Prep time: 20 min
Cooking time: 40 / 45 min
½ lb / 225 g Mozzarella
½ cup / 100 g Feta cheese
½ cup parsley
1 egg yolk
1 puff pastry sheet
1-   Preheat the oven to 400º F or 200º C.
2-   Grate the mozzarella or reduce it into small items with an enormous knife. It’s higher to make use of dry mozzarella fairly than the
recent form.
3-   Crumble the feta.
4-   Clear the parsley, take away the stalk, and chop finely. I like to recommend an enormous knife that you could maintain with one hand whereas retaining your different hand flat on the blade that will help you chop.
5-   Combine the three substances with a spoon.
6-   Unfold the dough and reduce it in half. Roll out one half on a parchment sheet and canopy with the cheese/parsley combine.
7-   Smear the sting of the dough with water.
8-   Cowl with the opposite half of the puff pastry and press on the sting of the dough to stay shut each side. Flip the beurek up-side-down with a purpose to have a flat and neat floor.
9-   Press the sting with a fork to make grooves.
10- Pre-cut the beurek into squares or diamonds.
11- Brush the dough with the egg yolk and a drop of water to provide a wealthy golden brown colour when it bakes.
12- Put it within the oven to bake for 40 to 45 min. Make certain the dough is effectively baked on the underside and the highest is crispy.
The result’s completely scrumptious! Don’t fear if some further melted cheese escaped from the dough, it makes it much more scrumptious. It’s our household’s favourite half; all of us attempt to pinch just a little little bit of the cheese earlier than serving it.
