Bougatsa with phyllo and cheese


For the béchamel

  • When the butter melts, add the flour to the pot and whisk until you have a thick paste. Scrape down the sides to make sure the flour doesn’t burn.
  • Add the milk in batches whisking at the same time so that lumps are not formed in the béchamel.
  • Remove pot from heat and crumble the feta. Add it to the pot along with the gruyere.
  • Add the egg and pepper continuously whisking.
  • Transfer the béchamel to a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed.

  • Preheat oven over 180ο C (355* F) Set to Fan.
  • Add the phyllo one by one to a 30x40 cm baking pan. Brush with lots of olive oil between each phyllo.
  • Spread the filling above the phyllo in the baking pan, leaving a 2 cm space from the edges.
  • Cover with the rest of the phyllo, brushing with olive oil in between.
  • Turn the edges of the phyllo inwards to make the brim of the pie.
  • Score the top of the pie into 12 pieces, sprinkle with black sesame and bake for 40-50 minutes in the oven.
