ÇEDAR PEYNİRLİ MİLFÖY BÖREK




































PUFF PASTRY BOREK WITH CHEDDAR CHEESE

I found this easy borek recipe on one of my favorite Turkish Food Blogs, "Hayat Binbircesni".Thank you Saliha, this is a brilliant idea.
It is a well know fact that the best borek is made from scratch but it takes too much time just like this one.
However this puff pastry borek is an exception. It almost tastes like somebody just made it from scratch.

Serves 4.

Ingredients:
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 bunch of chopped parsley
Topping:
  • 1 egg yolk
  • nigella and sesame seeds
Take the puff pastry sheet out of the freezer and let it thaw. Cut the pastry three equal parts. Dust a large, flat surface with  flour (dusting will keep the dough from sticking). Place one of the pastry part onto flat surface and sprinkle some more flour on top of it. Roll the pastry as thin as you can with a long roller pin. Keep dusting the dough with flour while you are rolling.
Take cheddar cheese and chopped parsley in a large bowl and mix it. Place 1/3  of filling along on the widest part of the pastry sheet and roll it up tightly to make a long cigar. Swirl this long cigar in the middle of a round tray. Repeat this step for the other two. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle sesame and nigella seeds

This looks great! I was just in Turkey a couple of months ago and took a cooking class in Istanbul, but we didn't make borek.
