As I promised, I am sharing one of my favorite phyllo dough pastries, Potato Pie. Technically, it is potato phyllo pastry, but we call it either potato burek or potato pie.
If you ask me to pick between meat burek and potato one, I would probably go with this one just because I love potatoes.
Do not get me wrong, meat-filled Burek holds a special spot in my heart, but like I said potato pie is one of my favorites.
When I take that first bite of the crunchy phyllo dough, and hot, peppery and soft potato filling hits my taste buds, game over. I can eat the whole baking tray, and I am not even joking. I love this stuff.
This makes an amazing appetizer, great snack, and even perfect work or school lunch. My kids love it when I make this for after the pool.
They swim, jump and play for a good two hours and after they come home, they are pretty much exhausted. Sometimes, I take really good sour cream and after the potato pie is done, I spread it on top.
Then, I leave it in the hot oven for 5 more minutes so the dough can soak in all that creamy goodness. You guys would love that! It just compliments each other very well.
