Spinach & Feta Gozleme | Easy & Cheesy Recipe

Make the most perfect & crispy spinach and feta gozleme with this super easy (and cheesy!) recipe. Serve with dips for a yummy dinner or snack!

A few years ago, Dave and I were lucky enough to visit Turkey… and we totally fell in love with the country, the people, and most definitely – the food! Because I’m a total lover of all things sweet, I completely overdosed on the baklava and turkish delight, but I was surprised that I loved the dips and breads just as much. I’m not usually the biggest bread fan, but during those few days in Turkey, I ate ALL OF THE BREAD!!

Spinach Feta Gozleme

One of my very favourite things was the traditional gozlemes. They’re a really flat Turkish bread that you fill with all sorts of yummy toppings and then cook. OMG so. darn. good.

The trick is to roll your gozleme dough out as thin as you can. The thinner the better! You want the gozlemes to cook relatively quickly and go nice and crispy – which is why the thin dough is so important.

Now you can fill your gozlemes with whatever you like… but my favourite version is the spinach and feta combination. It’s absolutely delicious and I can promise you that you’ll keep going back for more and more!

You can cook your gozlemes on a BBQ grill, or otherwise, just in a frying pan is fine. Because you’ll cook them one at a time, make sure your oven is on low so that you can pop them in there to keep warm while you cook the rest.

These are perfect for parties, lunch or a yummy and easy dinner. Oh and don’t forget to serve some dips and olives on the side too!

  5. Megan says:

    Do these freeze ok?
    Or better cooked fresh each time?

    I am currently filling my freezer with snack type foods for lunches and morning tea for my two daughters, and while they love the sweet things, I would love to be able to offer them savory snacks as well.

    🙂

      Hi Megan,
      You can freeze them cooked or uncooked. I generally like to make the dough and freeze that, then make the gozlemes on the day as that will give you the crispiest result!
