Today I have for you the easiest feta cheese pie ever! I found this recipe several years ago in Kristia Mavroidi’s book “183 Fresh Ideas” and it’s pretty yummy, more like a bread, though, than a traditional Greek style “pie”. But then you don’t need to have the filo in the freezer, take it out for thawing and buttering every single sheet!
- 6 eggs
- 400 grams yogurt (“sakoulas” or in English “Greek style” preferably)
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 250 grams butter or margarine
- 1/2 kilo or 1 pound feta cheese
- pepper, NO SALT
How to make: Beat the eggs with the yogurt and add flour+baking powder mix. Melt the butter or margarine and when it’s cooled off a bit, add it to the egg mix. Crumble the feta cheese and add it and the pepper to the egg mix. Give it a good stir, put the mix in a buttered pan (round or rectangular it doesn’t matter) and cook it in the 375 F/190 C oven for about half an hour or until light brown. If you know me, you have probably guessed it already that I made the pie in the photo with whole wheat flour… Enjoy!
