Bulgarian Banitsa recipe


● 1 lb of phyllo dough
● 1 cup of Bulgarian feta cheese, crumbled
● 1/2 cup of cottage cheese
● 1/2 cup of yogurt
● 1/4 cup of butter, melted
● 2 eggs, beaten
● 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley or dill
● 1/4 tsp of black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the feta cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, eggs, parsley
    or dill, and black pepper. Mix well.
  3. Lay out one sheet of phyllo dough on a clean work surface and brush it with a
    little bit of melted butter.
  4. Repeat with another sheet of phyllo dough, lay it on top of the first sheet, and
    brush it with butter.
  5. Continue layering the phyllo dough and brushing each sheet with butter until you
    have used about half of the phyllo dough.
  6. Spread the cheese mixture over the phyllo dough, leaving a 1-inch border around
    the edges.
