Burekas

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

These popular little puff pastry parcels are usually filled with potatoes, mushrooms or spinach and cheese.  They can be served as snack, as finger foods at a Shabbos kiddush, or as part of a summer picnic.   They are a genuine Sephardic-Jewish creation, copied by others throughout the Eastern Mediterranean.  They can be served hot or cold; you can prepare them in advance, and then freeze, unbaked.  Just pop them into the oven when needed.
