Recipe by GCBENEZRA
"Middle-Eastern style puff pastry pockets filled with cheese. Great served as an appetizer or the traditional Israeli way for breakfast with salad, olives, cheese, and plain yogurt. Could also be filled with leftover mashed potatoes, or a spinach and feta mixture."

shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (17.5 ounce) package
frozen puff pastry
Excellent! I followed the recipe as-is (except for the addition of a little bit of grated parmasian cheese), and the Bourekas turned out fantastically. The cheese was perfectly melted, and the puff pastry was a yummy golden brown. Great recipe.
I liked these, as did my husband and grandparents, but I had a hard time making them. They pop open when baking and do not stay closed and cheese leaks everywhere. They were greasy too. My family liked them a lot though.
This is a Syrian/Lebanese appetizer that's been around for as long as time! Add black seed (aka black cumin seed)to the cheese mixture for a more authentic flavor.
These are really good and filling. A nice change of pace!
These were fantastic! I chose to make these for a school assignment, and I'm glad I did. The first time I made them, they were perfect. The second time, I messed up a bit, and they turned out dry (my fault though)
My husband loved this but I wasn't crazy about it. The pastry didn't cook all the way through and you couldn't taste and cheese or egg.
A terrific side dish! I actually didn't end up using all the cheese called for. The seasonings are great and they bake beautifully. As the directions specify: serve immediately! No advance baking on these I'm afraid...
