Had a version of this dish while visiting Bulgaria, such a yummy breakfast dish...thought about adding diced ham.

Ingredients

1 pkg
filo dough
3
eggs
1 lb
feta cheese
3 Tbsp
butter
1 c
milk or yogurt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix the crumbled cheese, milk and eggs. Don't over mix-cheese should be lumpy. Melt the butter in a cup. Butter the bottom of a casserole pan, I use a glass pie plate. Lay 5-6 sheets of filo dough, one after another (not together) as you spread some butter in between-use a brush. Spread 1/2 of the cheese mixture on top, lay another 3-4 sheets, spreading butter in between. Spread remaining half of mixture. Fold edges to center of pie plate. Lay the last 3-4 sheets on top with no butter in between. Tuck in edge if using pie plate. Spread the rest of the butter on top. Bake for about 30 minutes in a 400 degree oven, until golden.
