Kataifi Cheese Pie

Savoury pies are hugely popular in Greek households. So is kataifi pastry. This is a sort of shredded filo, which is used plentifully in Greece, and as ‘kadayif’ is used in many Middle Eastern desserts (you might recognise it from some baklava varieties?).

This recipe is a unique spin on both the Hellenic pie tradition and kataifi! I add several varieties of melt-in-the-mouth cheese to kataifi filo pastry nests, snuggle them into a pie dish, and bake. It makes for a rich filling with a distinctively light, crispy texture on the top! It’s a real crowd pleaser.

Kataifi pastry isn’t available everywhere, but is easily available from Greek delis, online and from some bigger supermarkets. You can also make your own, but we have missed that step to deliver a delicious dinner quickly and easily!

If you’re looking for a show-stopping dish to bring to your next potluck or holiday party, look no further than this cheese kataifi pie! It’s sure to be a hit with all of your friends and family. Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy the recipe.

What an unusual… pastry?! I had a hard time finding kataifi but finally found it in a Turkish deli. Very tasteful recipe.
