Thanking our member Mary Patoula for sharing this fluffy cheese pie recipe with us. A lovely combination of feta cheese, anthotyro cheese and shredded phyllo dough.
- Preheat the oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
- Chop the shredded phyllo dough into small pieces. Untangle it with your hands and spread it out on a clean working space. Let it dry for about 10-15 minutes, though you don’t want it to dry out completely.
- Melt the 200 g of butter.
- Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Add the milk, yogurt, anthotyro cheese, melted butter, salt, pepper, nutmeg and thyme while whisking continuously.
- When all of the ingredients are completely incorporated, add the shredded phyllo dough and mix with a fork. When combined, crumble some feta cheese into the mixture.
- Grease a 27 cm spring form pan with 10 g of butter and sprinkle with some semolina.
- Transfer the mixture to the pan. Chop the remaining 20 g of butter into small pieces and scatter them over the top.
- Sprinkle with some sesame seeds and black sesame seeds.
- Bake for 1 hour until nice and golden.
- When ready, remove from oven and let it rest and cool for 1 hour before serving.
You can serve with honey, cinnamon and balsamic cream.
You can also add bits of bacon in the cheese pie or any other deli meats you like, as well as any leftover cheeses. You can add up to 100 g – 150 g.
