Burek's recipe of 12-10-2018 [Updated on 12-10-2018]

The burek it is a savory pie widespread in Turkey and the Balkans, especially in Albania, usually filled with meat, cheese or apples. The name of burek or börek derives from the Turkish word bur- which means "to roll up" and there are numerous variations of this recipe that vary from country to country.
In Greece this savory pie is usually made with feta cheese and spinach, in Albania, where it has now become one of the national dishes, this variant is made as a filo pastry pie and cheese and cut into triangles, in Serbia, the most common variant is made with pork and onions, in Bosnia and Bulgaria it is stuffed with cheese and egg and so on.
I therefore chose to make a version by mixing various recipes using the phyllo dough, stuffing it with feta cheese and covering everything with honey and sesame seeds. One word: delicious!

Method

How to make burek

Crumble the feta in a bowl and knead it with the prongs of a fork adding the soft cheese.

Brush the filo pastry sheets with the melted butter.
On each sheet created, place a little filling giving the shape of a long strip. Roll the sheets into long tubular strips of phyllo dough filled with feta.

Grease a low-sided baking pan and begin to form the burek by twisting the first tube into a spiral. Continue adding all the rolls gradually, arranging them as if to form a snail.

Brush the burek with honey and add the sesame seeds on its surface, bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Once ready, let the burek cool before serving.
