Feta Cheese Bread

(Peynirli Ekmek)

Feta Cheese Bread
1 cup yogurt, plain
125 gr unsalted butter, melted
125 ml (1/2 cup) extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1/4 cup dill, chopped
2-3 green (spring) onion, only white parts, chopped
1 tsp oregano
3 eggs, room temperature
2 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

8x8x2 (2L) Pyrex or oven safe dish, oiled

Mix all the ingredients except flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Mix the flour and baking powder and add into the feta cheese mixture. Mix them all with the spoon. Spread the mixture into the oiled oven dish.

Preheat the oven to 375 F (180 C) and bake until the colour of the top turns golden or toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool down first. Then slice it up and serve with Turkish Tea.

That looks scrumptious! I am planning to move to Turkey and the cooking is something I really look forward to!

I made this bread, but it is very fat. Don't you mean 125gram butter OR 125 ml olive oil? I used both...?

I used both, too:)

Hi Binnur,

Can the feta cheese be replaced with the Gazi or Sutdiyar peynir brands? Kind Regards,

I don't know about these brand names:) But if they are not cream cheese, sure, you can use them.
