Cheese & Basterma Pie


cheese pie 2


1 packet filo pastry

300 grs Kasseri cheese (grated coarsly)

300 grs Milner cheese (grated coarsly)

300 grs feta cheese (crumbled)

Mix all 3 cheeses together & place in a bowl

300 grs basterma (coarsly shredded with fingers & lightly cooked for easier spreading)



Pre-heat oven to 180 centigrades.

Butter a large baking tray.

Open the filo sheets one at a time

sprinkle some cheese mixture

sprinkle some Basterma

(make sure you leave about 1cm at far edge filling-free, and brush it with butter so that it seals better when you close the role)

roll from bottom up swiss roll fashion as in picture

place in pan, curling the edges to fit the width of the pan

keep placing the long rolls close to one another snuggled tightly in the pan until you run out of filo or of filling whichever comes first!

Just look at the pictures, they walk you through the steps one at a time.

Beat 1 cup milk + 1 egg

Pour on top

Bake for 45 minutes.

Everyone’s oven is sometimes totally different, so I suggest that you start checking after 30 minutes, and keep an eye on the colour to make sure that your pie is not overcooked.
