Great for breakfast! A traditional recipe from a Greek Island called Euboea.

  • Make the dough in a mixer, with the hook attachment. Beat the ingredients for a few seconds, just until the dough forms.
  • Let it rest for ½ an hour in the refrigerator.
  • Divide the dough and make 10 smooth balls. Roll out each piece to a very thin sheet.
  •  Crumble the cheese in to the yogurt. Add the egg and some pepper.
  • Drop a large spoonful on to each sheet of dough. Spread it all over. Brush the edges with some water so that the dough can stick, and fold each one in to a small “package”.
  • Fry in olive oil until crispy and golden brown.
Tip
In order to make the turnovers as puffy, crunch and golden brown as possible, make sure you use quite a bit of oil while frying. You can also add your choice of greens to the filling, as we have done in the picture. Sauté them in a pan lightly first!
