Hi everyone! Just recently discovered this place, and I've already enjoyed making a few of the recipes here. My first contribution is banitsa Smiley

It's a traditional Bulgarian breakfast food of eggs, cheese, and flaky buttered dough.

The ingredients:

    16 sheets of fillo dough
    10 eggs
    2 cups soda water
    1 stick of butter
    One 8 oz. Container of Feta Cheese
    Salt and Pepper

The steps:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a bowl, mix the eggs and soda water.
3. Melt the butter in the microwave and grease a lasagna pan with some of the butter.
4. Lay down 4 sheets of fillo dough, dabbing some butter between each sheet.
5. On the 4th sheet, evenly pour 1/4 of the egg and soda water mixture.
6. Sprinkle small pieces of feta all around.
7. Season the top with salt and pepper and repeat step 4 four more times.
8. Bake uncovered in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!

That sounds really good and I love feta cheese! But what is fillo dough? Do you think I could find it in Kansas?

Also know as phyllo, or filo, you can find in the frozen foods section of your grocery store- I think you'll be able to find it.

I LOVE this stuff-thanks for the recipe. I used to live in Bulgaria and we had it for breakfast every day Grin
