Slavena Emilova Molle

BanizaBaniza is typical Bulgarian dish. We prepare it with fillo dough and different stuffings – spinach and cheese, cheese and eggs, or leeks, and it can also be sweet, using squash and walnuts.
Here is the recipe for the one with cheese and eggs stuffing.

One package fillo dough
1 cup sunflower/olive oil
2-3 cups Feta cheese
5-6 eggs
2-2.5 cups milk

Preheat the oven to 180§ C.
Beat well four eggs.
Crumble the cheese and add to the egg mixture.
Place one sheet of the fillo dough in the baking pan. Sprinkle some oil (around 1 tbsp.) on top. Place the next sheet. Repeat. After every three sheets sprinkle scantily some of the egg-cheese mixture. Repeat the process until the fillo dough is used up.
In a bowl mix well one to two eggs and add the milk. Pour the liquid over the fillo dough.
Bake until gold brown.
Eat the dish hot with yogurt.
