Cheese pie with no filo pastry!


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!

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 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!

  1. I made that yesterday! It came out pretty good! Ours more egg-strata like than bready, but still very tasty. Thanks for posting this.

    • Glad you tried it! Add more flour next time. Flours are so different, it’s hard to get it to your liking the first time. But now you know you want a more bready consistency so you can add more flour to get it! Try also the fish cakes that I posted recently. You will love them!
