Feta Cheese Log Borek

(Peynirli Rulo Börek)

Feta Cheese Log Borek
12 sheets Phyllo Pastry


1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup parsley, chopped

1/4 or 1/3 cup milk
1 egg
4-5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Prepare the filling ingredients. Whisk the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Lay first 4 sheets of phyllo pastry down on the counter. Brush some sauce between the sheets. Spread 1/3 of filling with the spoon all over it. Place the second part of 4 sheets of phyllo pastr on them.  Brush some sauce between the sheets. Spread the half of the filling all over the surface. Place the last 4 phyllo sheets on top. Brush the rest of the sauce between the sheets. Spread the rest of the filling all over it (picture). Then roll it up and make a log, do not squeeze too much!

Keep the log in the freezer at least for half an hour. Remove and slice it up in half inch width. Place them in a container with the lid (picture). Put waxed paper between the layers. Whenever you want to fry them, pick out as much as you want and fry both sides, without oil and at medium-low heat, until they get a light golden colour. While you fry them lightly press on tops with the back side of the fork.

You can serve them as an appetizer or at breakfast with tea.

Hi Binnur,
Thanks as always for your recipes. Question - when you say "fry both sides, without oil," do you mean fry in a dry pan? Also, can you bake these instead of frying?
Sag olun.

Thank you Sedef:) Yes, you can fry them in a dry pan. I always use a teflon pan for it:) Sure, you can bake them:) If you like, you can use a parchment paper or layer them on an oiled tray:)
Afiyet olsun!

Hello. Is the cheese for the filling flavoured with tomatoes or paprika?
