These lil' Cheese Boreks or my friends call them Turkish Spring rolls are my husband's favorite food from childhood.....they are filled with cheese and herbs.
Boreks are one of the great indulgences of Turkish cuisine – comforting and satisfying. You never can visit anyone's home with the hostess not having any Borek homemade to offer.
Through the years I've noticed on my visits that there have popped a lot of little Borek Shops only making Boreks, any shape and filling you can think of.....all freshly made daily. There are square shapes, round, triangle and rolled....
These are great as a snack before dinner or they love them there with some Turkish tea a for breakfast.
Crumbled Feta Cheese
2 cups of Feta, crumbled
1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
1/2 cup fresh dill chopped
Canola Oil for sauteing
Combine cheese, feta and parsley together.
Roll them up in the pastry leaves and fry with the seam down for a few minutes till golden in a skillet with oil......be sure and turn them around to get an even golden color. They fry very quickly so keep watching them. Put on paper towel when golden to soak up the extra oils.
**** They can also be filled with spinach and cheese or mince meat with onions and tomato.
****Alternatively...you can brush with with some butter or oil and put on a sheet and bake for 15 min. at 375......till golden.
