Soft Patty with Cheese

Today I want to share a patty recipe. Actually it has a different name, but I prefer to create my own. You can try this recipe with spinach and cream cheese or ground meat and onion.


  • 3 pastry sheets
  • 1/2 cup of sunflower or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • Parsley
  • 1 dessertspoon yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Sesame, black or flax seeds
  • 2 liters of boiling water
  • 1 liter of cold water


You can find pastry sheets in any Middle East shop, or you can use filo dough. But I cannot say that filo dough will be good as thick pastry sheets in this type of patty. Cut them into four pieces (if you use filo dough you do not need to cut). Take a glass baking pan and apply some oil at the bottom with the help of a brush. Lay one piece of pastry sheet down at the bottom.

Take a large pot and add boiling water, salt and a little bit oil in it, put on medium heat. Add cold water in a large bowl and place it a place close to the pot. Take a piece of pastry sheet and put it into boiling water and wait about one minute.

After one minute take it from hot water and put into cold water just for couple of seconds. After taking it from the cold water spread it on top of the pastry sheet you have placed on the baking pan.

Apply oil on surface of the boiled pastry sheet with the help of a brush. Repeat the same procedure for half of the sheets, and then add the mixture of mozzarella, feta cheese and chopped parsley on top of the sheets (you can use spinach instead of parsley if you want).

Repeat the boiling procedure to the other sheets, until one piece left. Put last piece (preferably a good looking one) on very top. Add yogurt into the oil left and apply this on very top with a brush. Decorate with Sesame, black or flax seeds. 

Preheat oven to 400 F and bake it about 40 minutes. Then take it from the oven and wrap it with a tablecloth and wait about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, slice into squares. Your patty is ready.
