Street food, snack, meze or something to enjoy at any moment is Tiropita!
A very delicious cheese pie, made with Feta cheese and eggs, something between a pie and a Soufflé!
Warm or cold, with coffee, tea, beer or wine it is absolutely delicious!
Every country has their own street food!
When in a different country make it a point to have the street food of the area, paying special attention to the way the food is prepared and how clean everything is! Also look at the person behind the cart, and their hands, how does it feel, inviting, you get a good feeling, then go ahead and have some, otherwise do not play with your vacation time!
Don’t go with the logic that heat kills all and it is just fine!
This is a very important detail if you don’t want to get sick!
Ask many questions and never assume!
I remember in one of our vacations to Colombia I was ready to get a piece from a cluster hanging from a tree thinking it was cheese, thank god someone asked me if I knew what that was, I said cheese and he said with a smile, Iguana eggs!
Needless to say, I went no further!
In Greece, they have so many to choose from, but the most famous and delicious is the Souvlaki!
Delicious lamb or pork and chicken chunks, marinated in all the amazing herbs and spices of the region and roasted in charcoal, make the best street food!
Tiropita, spanakopita, koulouri with Sesame and so much more are available and it is clean food! Delicious food and very inexpensive!
Here is my recipe for a very delicious Tiropita!
You will need:
500 gr. Phyllo
2 cups Feta cheese crumbled
1 cup milk
Oil for oiling in between the phyllo
Here is what you do:
In a bowl mix the crumbled Feta cheese with 3 of the eggs and ½ cup milk, add the pepper.
Oil a rectangular Pyrex pan
Start layering the phyllo one by one oiling between each and every phyllo.Use ½ of the phyllo on the bottom and then pour the feta mixture.
Continue layering the same way until there is no more phyllo.
Score the Tiropita with a sharp knife.
In a little bowl add the other 3 eggs and the rest of the milk and with a fork mix well.
Pour this mixture on the top of your scored tiropita and make sure it covers all the area.
Sprinkle a little grated parmesan on top and bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes.
You want your tiropita to have a nice golden color.
