String Cheese Börek
(Dil Peynirli Börek)
3-4 sheets of Phyllo Pastry
1 tbsp butter, melted
String Cheese, adjust the length of the cheese to the phyllo sheet
1egg + 1 tbsp water, beaten
1/4 cup sesame seeds + 3/4 cup bread crumbs + Salt + Pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C).
Place the two sheets (or three sheets) on top of each other on the counter and place them vertically. Spread the butter all over the surface. Place the third sheet on them. Divide them into three parts from top to bottom. Place the cheese on the long side of each sheet. First fold the ends from the outside to inside, then roll it up (picture). Do not squeeze too much. Pastry may break during baking!
First dip the borek in the egg mixture, and then into the mixture of sesame seed. Arrange them on the oven tray on top of parchment paper.
Bake until they turn to a golden colour. Let them cool down a little bit!
Serve as an appetizer or supper with Turkish Tea.
