Feta Dill and Green Onion B?re?i

This is the easiest and fastest B?reks that I've ever made, unless if you are planning to make your own yufka which will take a lot of practice and pretty time consuming to make, especially when it times to roll the dough to achieve the thinness of yufka dough. For now, I am quite happy with the store bought yufka dough. One day when I have enough energy and time, I will try to make my own yufka dough.

The filling of this B?reks is very simple and easy to make. I like to used French feta cheese which is less sodium. If you find this still too salty, you can soak the feta to each out some of the salt before using it. If you like the meat filling, I made once with leftover Turkey from Thanksgiving dinner last year. It was really delicious. So, if you have leftover meat or poultry, you can make this Sigara B?re?i. It really is superb snacks.
