Comments Off on Recipe for Tiropsomo – Greek Bread Stuffed With Cheese
You can use any type of Greek cheese you want for this recipe, but the most traditional choice is feta. Feel free to substitute halloumi for the feta if you want the cheese to ooze a little bit when it is hot.
Tiropsomo Recipe ingredients:
- 1 recipe psomi (Greek bread)
- 1 1/3 cups crumbled feta cheese
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons water
- 4 tablespoons sesame seeds
Prepare the bread recipe according to the instructions. Let the dough rise according to the directions.
Punch the dough down and let it rest for a minute. Cut the dough into four equal portions and roll out on a clean, floured surface.
Place 1/3 cup of feta cheese in the center of each of the dough pieces. Form each into a packet so that the cheese is in the center.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or brush the baking sheet with olive oil. Place each small loaf on the sheet evenly spaced apart.
Let rise until doubled. This should take 30 minutes – 1 hour. Keep checking it.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Crack the egg into a small dish and add the water. Scramble with a fork and then brush the egg mixture over the surface of each of the bread rounds. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of the sesame seeds.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until golden brown. This should take about 30 minutes.
