Cheese Borek Recipe
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 bunch fresh parsley, minced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 6 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, shredded
- 6 ounces Emmentaler cheese, finely shredded
- 12 sheets phyllo dough
- 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, melted
step 1: In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, parsley, garlic and crushed red pepper. Mix in Gouda and Emmentaler.
step 2: One sheet at a time, place phyllo dough on a flat surface and brush with about 1 tablespoon butter. Cut lengthwise into 4 strips. Place a rounded teaspoon of the egg mixture at one end of each strip. Fold corner of strip over the filling, forming a triangular fold. Continue folding the length of the strip in triangular folds to form a small stuffed triangle. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough.
step 3: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly butter a large baking sheet.
step 4: Arrange stuffed phyllo triangles in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
