Description

Gibanica is one of the most famous Balkan dishes. It’s so soft and cheesy—perfect for breakfast!

Ingredients

  • 10 whole Eggs
  • 220 grams Cream Cheese
  • 1000 grams Salted Cottage Cheese
  • 500 grams Phyllo Dough Sheets
  • 220 grams Unsalted Butter, melted

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease 13 x 9 inch pan and set aside.

For the filling, in a large bowl beat eggs until foamy. Add cream cheese and whisk well. Then add cottage cheese and stir everything.

Place 2 sheets of phyllo in a pan. Pour 2 tablespoons of melted butter over dough and using a brush spread evenly. Take the next 2 sheets of phyllo and put them in the bowl with the cheese mixture, making sure the sheets absorb enough of the mixture (this is really important!). Put on top of first 2 sheets that are already in a pan. If there isn’t enough cheese, just use a tablespoon to add more. Repeat the process until 2 sheets are left. Put the last 2 sheets on top.

Pour remaining butter on top and spread evenly. Bake uncovered for about 1 hour.

When done, let cool for 15 minutes and then cut into square pieces. Serve and enjoy!
