A very old family recipe. This is how my grandmother made it. All measurements are approximate; my grandmother never measured anything. You can substitute any combination of cheeses. This recipe is for appetizer sized portions. If you want it for a side dish, don't cut the fillo in half. Practice folding boereg, using a piece of paper or a napkin.
