This is a slightly simpler way to enjoy borekas -- if you don't enjoy folding over the phyllo, this recipe doesn't require it!

1 package phyllo
2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup vegetable oil

5 eggs, beaten lightly
1 lb. cottage cheese (small curd)
1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 tsp salt


  1. Mix 4 eggs with cottage cheese, parmesan cheese and salt and set aside.
  2. Spray 13 x 9 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray or lightly oil
  3. Create the bottom layer by placing individual sheets of phyllo down (fold if necessary) and brushing each with oil and sprinkling a small amount of parmesan cheese. Use half the available sheets (about 15).
  4. Set aside the remaining phyllo sheets, making sure to keep them from drying (cover with a damp towel).
  5. Spread the egg and cheese mixture evenly over the bottom layer of phyllo.
  6. Build the top layer the same as with the bottom layer - brush each with oil and sprinkle parmesan cheese.
  7. Brush the top two layers with extra oil and then with the remaining beaten egg.
  8. At this point, you may cut lengthwise before baking (3 or 4 rows, per your preference).
  9. Bake at 375 degrees (F) for 45 minutes. The top should be golden brown when done.
  10. Cut into squares and serve!
