Bougatsa is a Greek breakfast pastry consisting of either semolina custard, cheese, or minced meat filling between layers of phyllo.
Greek bougatsa is prepared from phyllo dough wrapped around a filling. After it is baked, it is cut into serving pieces and served hot.
Tyropita Kourou is a cheese pie made with a type of phyllo which I would describe somewhat like tart dough.
Kourou is an unleavened phyllo, light and flaky due to the butter and yoghurt it contains.
In Greece you can get many types of tyropita (cheese pie) the most popular being homemade “horiatiko“, meaning village phyllo.
The basic kourou phyllo is made with butter, Greek yoghurt, flour and salt.However, you can also add an egg to the dough, in which case more flour is added to the dough.
Loukanikopita which in Greek translates to sausage pie is an all time classic breakfast pastry. Usually combined with ice coffee or chocolate milk.
Peinirli is a delicacy adored by pretty much everyone in Greece . It is a boat-shaped bread that is high in yeast and butter, with a buttery, cheesy filling.
Peinirli can contain just about anything, from eggs to minced meat (in Greece, nine times out of 10 the meat used in mince is veal) to ham and peppers. But the main point here is the butter: peinirli has to contain a substantial amount of real, full-fat butter, otherwise it is not a proper peinirli.
