Boreks are little stuffed pasties from Turkey. These are easy to make and great for appetizers. These can be served hot or room temperature.

Lordy, Lordy, but I love this site. I have been looking for this recipe for DECADES, literally. These are the greatest little finger foods on the planet! Thank you so much for posting! Although, I don't use the mint. Can't stand the stuff. All I could remember is that I knew they had feta in them, but was too mild to actually be feta by itself.
- 8 ounces feta cheese, grated
- 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
- 3 tablespoons chives, chopped
- 3 tablespoons mint, chopped
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- 8 ounces phyllo pastry
- 3 -4 tablespoons melted butter
- salt & fresh ground pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, blend the feta and mozzarella cheese with the beaten eggs. Add the chopped herbs, season with pepper and nutmeg and stir well to mix.
- Cut the sheets of pastry into four rectangular strips approximately 3 inches wide. Cover all but one or two strips with a damp cloth to prevent them from drying out.
- Brush on strip of pastry at a time with a little melted butter. Place 1 teaspoon filling at the bottom edge. Fold one corner over the filling to make a triangle shape. Continue folding the pastry over itself until you get to the end of the strip. Keep making triangles until all the mixture is used up.
- Place the boreks on a greased baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
