Egg pie or Cheese pie

Ingredients

  • 7 - 8 Home made sheets
  • 12-15 eggs, well knocked
  • 1 can of concentrated milk (no water needed) in the eggs or ½ fresh
  • ½kilo milk
  • ½ cup of oil or 1 cup of oil and ½ cup of butter.
  • 1 kilo of hard cheese
  • 1 baking pan

You mould the sheets. You knock the eggs very well and pour the milk inside. Cut the cheese in large piece. Put the biggest sheet in the oiled baking pan and cover all its spots keeping the pie inside.
Spread the sheet with oil (and butter) and with a spoon pour the mix of egg and milk and add the cheese. Repeat the same with the last sheet. At this time, you turn inside the first sheet and place the last turned from the inside. Spread it with butter and egg, sprinkle some water and prick with a fork the top of the pie.
Cook on a medium heat for 1 hour.

The pie is delicious. You can also make it with fewer ingredients and sheets in a smaller baking pan. Traditionally, it is made for the week of Tirines - on the Carnival days. It is a traditional pie of Lefkada.
