Greek Cheese Pie


The Dough:

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 spoon oregano
  • dash of salt
  1. Mix ingredients; knead for about 2-3 minutes adding flour to until it doesn’t stick to the hands – separate into 3 equal parts

The Filling:

  • a couple of chopped green shallots (can replace with 1/3 white onion)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 2 cups feta cheese , crumbled
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole milk or better still, half & half
  • 3 eggs
  • salt, pepper, thyme
  1. Beat eggs. Mix all other ingredients. Heat in pot until cheese starts melting.
  2. Allow to cool to room temperature then mix in eggs

The Assembly:

  1. Roll out the 3 dough balls- so that each one is a bit bigger than your baking pan (I use 8×12 in.)- the amount of dough, for that size will give you the right thickness
  2. Place the first layer on the greased pan, with ends hanging over the pan rim – add half the filling follow on with the second dough layer
  3. Add the rest of the filling
  4. Finish off with the last dough layer. Fold the dough layers together
  5. Pluck a few holes, making sure you go through the second layer of dough
  6. Bake for 3/4 hour at around 400ºF.
