Comments Off on Recipe for Tiganopita me Feta – Greek Flatbreads with Feta
In Greece, tiganopita refers to a type of flatbread that is fried in pancake-shaped discs in a skillet or baked in the oven. This particular tiganopita recipe uses a bread dough that is then topped with feta cheese and herbs just before serving.
Greek Flatbreads with Feta Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs, beaten with a fork
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
- Pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup mixed, fresh herbs (oregano, basil, thyme, parsley, etc), chopped
Add the flour and eggs to a medium bowl and whisk together until smooth. You can also use an electric mixer to do this. Slowly add the water while whisking or beating. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit on the counter for at least thirty minutes and up to two hours.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Brush a large baking dish with olive oil.
Add the crumbled feta cheese, pepper, and fresh herbs to a medium bowl and gently mix. Stir one cup of this mixture into the batter and pour into the baking dish. Bake for about thirty minutes or until the top is golden brown and the sides begin to come away from the dish. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan. Cut into wedges just before serving.
