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.
