Making a pita pie with cheese and herbs:

Step 1: Preparing pita bread for the pie.

We cut lavash sheets into smaller ones, which exactly fit the shape or baking sheet in which you will cook. In order to make it easier for us at this stage, it is necessary to use a very sharp knife, and you can also prepare a piece of cardboard or thick paper.

Step 2: Prepare the filling for the cake.

Grind hard cheese on a fine grater and place it in a separate plate. In order for the grated cheese to crumble well before chopping it, the cheese must be thoroughly frozen in the refrigerator. Knead the cottage cheese in a bowl with a fork, salt it a little and add 2-3 tablespoons of sour cream. Mix the ingredients thoroughly until smooth. We carefully wash the greens in water and finely chop it.

Step 3: Form the cake.

In a bowl, mix the balance of sour cream with milk. We beat in the same eggs and beat the contents again with a fork. Add salt, pepper and add a mixture of dried herbs. We cover the baking sheet with parchment or foil, then pour the butter melted in a dry frying pan or in the microwave and distribute it evenly over the entire surface of the mold. Next, take a sheet of pita bread, dip it in a mixture of sour cream, eggs and milk and let it stand for 5-10 seconds. Then we carefully take it out and put it on the bottom of the pan. Then, over the entire surface of the pita bread we distribute the grated cheese. After it we spread a layer of cottage cheese and sprinkle it with plenty of greens. All this is again covered with pita soaked in milk mass. Then again lay out the filling. And so we form the pie layer by layer until the sheets of pita bread and the filling are over.

Step 4: Bake our product.

Sprinkle the finished pie on top with grated cheese. We heat the oven to a temperature of 180 degrees. We send the pie to the roasting pan for 10-15 minutes until a juicy golden color. After we take the cake out of the oven, it is necessary to cool it a bit, and only then cut into portioned pieces.

Step 5: Serve pita pie with cheese and herbs.

It is best to serve the cake in a warm form. But cold, it is very tasty and juicy. You can warm the cooled cake in the microwave or by sending it to the oven for several minutes. It is very tasty to eat a pie with sour cream and drink unsweetened tea. He has a delicious taste. And the consistency of the pie is such that the dish just melts in your mouth. Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - If you are a lover of "thrills", then in the curd component of the filling you can add garlic crushed by the press. In this case, the cake will receive a special piquant taste and aroma.

- - Instead of sour cream for a mixture in which pita bread is soaked, you can use thick fermented baked milk or fat yogurt.

- - The surface of the pie can be sprinkled with sesame seeds or finely chopped greens.
