What's The Big Idea?
There is a dish from Hungary with a very similar name. I'm not certain if the dish itself is similar, so if anyone knows I'd be really interested to find out, so please get in touch.
This is kind of like a Spanish omelette in principal, and makes a tasty and substantial snack.
It is traditionally made using Bulgarian sirene cheese, which is sometimes made from goats milk, but more commonly nowadays from cows milk, and as part of the production process
is soaked in brine. If you can't get sirene from your delicatessen, the nearest equivalent is probably Greek feta cheese, which is widely available.
Here's the list of what you need:
What To Do
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 small red onions. finely chopped
- 4 small red peppers, seeded and chopped
- 3 large tomatoes, finely chopped
- ½lb sirene cheese (or feta), grated or diced
- 4 eggs
- Salt and black pepper
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onions and fry for 3 minutes
- Add the peppers and the tomatoes and cook for a further 3 minutes
- Beat together the cheese, eggs and seasoning. Pour over the other ingredients and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until cooked
- Sprinkle with parsley and serve with toast or fresh bread
