Cato's Cheese Bread Recipe

Step 1

Put the cheese into a medium sized mixing bowl. Mash well with the fingers until it becomes a smooth, lumpless paste. Add the flour and mix well with the fingers. Add the beaten egg and mix well. The dough will be rather sticky.

Step 2

Divide the dough into two equal parts, then form two round, flat, 1/2 inch thick loaves. Lay each on three bay leaves set on a greased baking sheet, and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 1 to 1-1/2 hours, or until cooked through.

Step 3

Remove the loaves from the oven, spread the tops with the honey, and let cool. Remove the bay leaves before serving. NOTE: If feta cheese is unavailable, use 1 cup cottage cheese and add 1/4 cup extra flour (but the taste is inferior).

Things You'll Need

  • 1c Feta cheese, drained,
  • Crumbled, and packed into the measuring cup
  • 1/2c Unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 6 Bay leaves
