"Burek je s mesom, sve ostalo su pite."
(by every Bosnian ever) :-)
Even-though spread across the Balkans this savory phyllo-pie is a Bosnian specialty. If you were ever in Bosnia you must have tried a Burek. They are sold in every bakery, on every corner across the country. There are many varieties of this pie and their name changes according to the filling inside (and your current geographical position).
Here are some of the most common ones:
Burek - filled with meat
Zeljanica - filled with spinach and cottage cheese
Sirnica - filled with cottage cheese, sour cream and eggs
Pita od jabuka - apples
and the list goes on....
We'll be doing couple of those here on bite&sip but let us start with meat!
Time needed: about 2 hours
Dough preparation and resting: about 1 hour
Baking time about 40 minutes
