DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all ingerdients and let sit 2-4 hours for flavor to develop.
  • This can be made and spread on bread as is though is most commonly and traditionally placed onto the surface of a pita-type dough and pushed into the surface before baking. PLEASE DO NOT use feta cheese. It is not used and is far too salty for this.
  • In Morocco we do not see pita breas so we use a bread like "MY ROUGH KHOUBZ" which is posted here on zaar.
  • The thyme is used in some countries in up to 2 teaspoons It depends on your own tolerance for it and I like it as a forward flavor but not to overpower.
  • You can use stor bought pita bread and place the cheese onto the top of that, pushing slightly so it stays on and bake in a 375 degree oven until hot, approximately 8-10 minutes.
  • This makes approximately 2 cups of cheese mix.
