2 Ingredient Easy Turkish Borek

This puff pastry börek is one of the popular dishes in Turkish cuisine you can eat at breakfast, lunch, or as a snack at any time of the day.

We are making an easy borek using ready puff pastry and cheese filling. You can also make this delicious rolled borek with hand-rolled sheets or ready phyllo sheets. I will give more details in the article.

Ingredients For Easy Börek:

  • Ready frozen puff pastry
  • Turkish white cheese (or feta cheese or mix it with mozzarella)
  • Chopped parsley (optional but recommended)
  • For the top: 1 egg yolk and 1 tbsp milk. (If you are allergic to eggs try using mix of plain yogurt and oil)

How To Make Easy Borek With Puff Pastry

First we have to thaw frozen puff pastry to so we can shape it. In Turkey we have them in rectangular shape with marks on the middle to cut if you want them square. If ıt is possible it would be better to use butter puff pastry

Preparing white cheese filling for easy Turkish borek
  1. Crumble the white cheese with fork and add chopped parsley if you use.
  2. Thawed the puff pastry for 10-15 minutes at room temperature before you are going to use them. It should bend withouth breaking so we can shape it. Sprinkle flour on countertop and roll out one piece of dough into thin rectangular.
  3. Cut the pastry to make two long strips and fill with cheese filling along the long side. Fold and seal.
  4. Begining from the middle swirl the piece to shape (please refer to the video) and continue to shape the puff pastry dough and cheese until you fill the pan or it is finished. If you can’t find round pan use rectangular, it’s fine 🙂
  5. Brush the top with egg yolk and milk saouce or yogurt oil mixture and bake at 200C degree preheated oven until golden color on to and bottom for about 40 minutes. Serve hot or warm with glass of Turkish tea
