Gözleme is a savoury traditional Turkish hand made and hand rolled pastry. Fresh pastry is rolled out, filled and sealed, then cooked over a griddle. The name derives from the Turkish word göz meaning eye. Traditionally, this is done on a sac.

Gözleme varieties include:

  • Spinach and Feta Cheese
  • Spinach and Feta and Minced meat
  • Spinach and Feta and Egg
  • Seafood
  • Egg
  • Minced Meat
  • Cheese
  • Potatoes
  • Mushroom
  • Lavaş cheese

The unique of this meal can be eaten anytime, anywhere. Sometimes some people like it as a snack or just a brunch with hot tea. Among those variety, today I made combination of feta cheese and parsley. You might try other filling variation to get different taste of this gözleme

 Phyllo dough-I use ready one ^,^
 crumbled feta cheese
 Chopped parsley or dill (optional)
 Butter for grease the pan while 

Mix feta cheese and chopped parsley/ dill as filling. 
Unfold your phyllo dough, scatter feta cheese in center part of phyllo dough, folding each side of the dough to form square shape. Heat a large nonstick skillet, spread the surface with butter, fried both side until done and dark brown in color.

Serve warm.

This picture below I took last summer in one old village in Bursa, name Cumalıkızık. You can see old traditional griddle she use for cooking gözleme. She was making handmade phyllo dough-very very thin wide dough without rolling machine, just manual hand ^,^

  1. What a great idea, Citra! I've never ever thought of frying phyllo pastry this way. It's always some kind of samosas or baked desserts. It looks similar to our local 'murtabak' with a mince meat filling except that has a chewy dough. I like this idea, so much easier when I can get store bought phyllo too! Thanks!

  2. I think this is similar to something that we call, Gomleze or Turi Potpechi, and we bake it. :)

  3. I've never had Gözleme, but it sounds (and looks!) wonderful!

  4. i love how you stuffed the phyllo sheets and still made it look like flatbread! delish!

  5. This look so yummy, you have the best recipes on your site. I will have to try and make this. I wonder if our phylo pastry is the same as yours??
