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.
This is a Bulgarian classic and my boyfriend’s all-time favorite. He keeps asking me to make it at least once a week. It makes 2-3 servings as a main course and 3-4 as a side dish and I suppose cooking time can be considerably lowered if you use a fryer. I had trouble categorizing it as a Course, and I finally decided to put it under Salads as here it is often sold as a ready-made salad. But if you have better ideas feel free to request a change in category.
This cold soup is among Bulgarians favorite foods for the summer. It is served as a first course instead of a salad or between meals as refreshment. You might even see it served in a glass. Most men here say it goes great with a glass of cold rakiya (Bulgarian grape or fruit brandy) or Ouzo.
This salad is one of the most popular here in Bulgaria. Its name "Shopska" comes from one of the regions of the country (the one surrounding the capital) but it can be found everywhere. And "salata" means simply salad. I hope you enjoy it.
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.
