    Originally published by me on This is a very very quick fix dish and incredibly filling. The slice of rye bread on the side turns it into a complete meal.

    Recipe #396341

    My boyfriend never gets tired of these. I hope you like them too. They are so easy to make and they go very well with potatoes, French fries, all types of fresh salads and also with my zucchini in yogurt and with tarator. Cooking time should be much shorter with a fryer.

    Once again one of my boyfriend's favourites. He never gets tired of these meatballs or of my cutlets and he often requests both at the same time. Grilling is also a nice option although you might want to put more beef or more bread so that the mixture gets thicker.

    Recipe #71117

    This recipe is typical for the Strandja Mountain region in Bulgaria. Once again, I took it from the Bulgarian National Cuisine cookbook of Zemizdat.

    Unlike what you might expect, this is one of the easiest dishes in my repertory. In takes time to bake but preparation is a breeze. There are an awful lot of different moussakas that I suppose all originate from different parts of the Balkans. This is the most popular one in Bulgaria and when you order moussaka in a Bulgarian restaurant this is exactly what you are going to get. All others are named after the veggies used -- moussaka with zucchini, with eggplant or vegetarian moussaka (rice and vegetables).

    This is a recipe I have not tried yet but I found it in an old book about traditional Bulgarian cooking and it sounded great. I decided to share it so here it is. If you happen to try it, please share how it came out and what kind of cheese you used. By the way, I'm guessing at preparation and cooking times.

    Recipe #75663

    If you need something to fix in a hurry or you don't have too much time to spend in the kitchen this is ideal.

    Recipe #71383

    This is one of my mom’s dishes that I have always just loved. She used to do it in an old cast iron pot, which it seems added an authentic air, if not flavor, to the meal. You may also substitute the chicken for pork and the feta for any other cheese that you fancy but preferably with a strong flavor or aroma.

    Fast and fun although probably not the healthiest meal on Earth. They go well with French fries, fresh salads, tarator or simply some bread.

    One more thing out of the Bulgarian National Cuisine cookbook that I am planning to try. It comes from the region of Veliko Tarnovo. And it does sound appealing, doesn't it?

    Recipe #79183

    Bansko is a mountain resort town in Bulgaria so, you have guessed it right, one more entry from the Bulgarian National Cuisine cookbook.

    Recipe #79685

    One more typical Bulgarian salad.

    Recipe #61375

    This is something I came up with when I was on a diet and watching my calories. Turned out quite good though, and my Mom still requests it from time to time. Let’s see if you like it. By the way, cook time is valid only if you boil the eggs and the potatoes one after the other.

    Recipe #88647

    From the Indian Creative Cooking cookbook. I've made this again and again and love it. True winter recipe to put some warmth on your body and heart. Really miss it this winter since my blender broke.

    Recipe #268672

    This is just something that I came up with last Friday and my parents really loved it. I, however, had the feeling that it missed something, but can't say what. That's why I leave the recipe open to suggestions.

    Recipe #72723

    My boyfriend and I have this joke going on about the little green men from Mars and how they only have green stuff to eat. So this must be exactly their cup of tea. Or should I say their bowl of salad.

    Recipe #91038

    This is my Mom's variation of the classical Bulgarian Moussaka (which I have also posted). It might have more steps but it's easier to bake. Cooking time includes boiling the potatoes while you fry the chicken.

    Recipe #71207

    This one comes from Rex Hunt Fishing Adventures and the segment of Chef Lain Hewitson. I told a friend about it and she asked me to write it down. I decided someone else might like me to share it too; so, here it comes.

    I don't know about other places in the world but in Bulgaria it is awfully hard to find a skim milk fruit flavored yogurt with no sugar added. But I found a way to indulge even when I am on a diet. And here it is.

    Recipe #100515

    This is an extremely popular snack food here. Lately it is becoming less popular in cafeterias but it is still a favorite at almost any home. Feel free to alter the condiments but keep the pepper, the onions and the cumin. You could also grate some cheese on top, or add it to the meat mixture.
