Recipe Notes

 

You only require 2 sheets, of filo per length. Cover the remainder with a damp tea towel to stop them from drying out.

 

I used a 28cm round pan and used the rolled technique for this borek.

 

You can just layer the  filo and filling like a lasagne for a easier version.

 

Both is delicious!
