Total Time2 hrs 25 mins
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Bulgaria
Keyword: all-purpose flour, Bulgarian feta cheese, eggs
Servings: 8

Ingredients

For the dough

  • lb flour
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk / lukewarm

For the filling

  • 1 egg
  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 4 oz Bulgarian yogurt, beaten
  • 13 oz Bulgarian feta cheese, crumbled sirene

For the decoration

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp cold milk

Instructions

For the Dough

  • Dissolve yeast and sugar in 1/2 cup water. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Mix all ingredients of the dough except the salt and incorporate milk slowly.
  • Form a dough and add the salt. Mix the dough for 5 minutes with a stand mixer (at medium speed) or 10 minutes (by hand).
  • Cover the dough and let it rise for about 45 minutes in a warm place, away from drafts.

Filling

  • Beat the egg and mix with yogurt and sirene.
  • Divide the dough into several balls of equal weight. Roll each ball to a thickness of about 1/2 inch.
  • Smear butter and filling on the surface of each piece of dough. Roll the dough onto itself to obtain a cylinder.
  • Shape each cylinder into a snail-shaped roll and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Place all the snail-shaped rolls next to each other by spacing them slightly to form a large bun. As they expand during baking, all the snails will form one large bread. Let rise again for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat convection oven to 350 F.
  • Coat the bread with the egg yolk and milk mixture. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the bread is golden.
