Borek | Börek

Borek is a family of baked and filled pastries with Anatolian origins. Borek is made by layering phyllo or yulfka with fillings of meat, cheese, spinach, or potato. It is then topped with a mixture of yogurt and egg which lets the crust become crispy in the baking process.

There are numerous varieties of borek. Classic variations include Sigara Böreği (a small deep-fried roll filled with cheese) and Su Böreği (baked yufka and white cheese topped with extra yogurt to make it soft and moist).
