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!

Her’s a slice of the pie, done with coarsely crumbled feta.
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!
