Day 127: Khachapuri
Khachapuri is a Georgian cheese bread, with an egg cracked in the middle! It tastes and looks so unique!
Even after you make a well, your egg white will probably run out. That's okay, it will taste great!
Some people see these shaped like a boat.
And some see them shaped like an eye.
You can stick 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter on both ends of your khachapuri, but that's optional.
You can eat this for brunch, lunch, or dinner.
|Level: 👩🏽🍳👩🏽🍳|Time: 1 hour 40 minutes|Serves: 4|
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup of water
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cup Farmers cheese
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup Feta cheese
4 eggs + 1 for egg wash
unsalted butter optional
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Mix yeast, sugar, and flour in a large bowl. Over medium heat stir water and milk together. Poke your finger, and check if it's a slightly warm to touch. Add this to your yeast/flour mixture, knead, and form a ball. Cover and proof for an hour and 10 minutes.
Cut into 4 sections and roll each one out into a circle 9" in diameter. Fold over to make a boat or eye shape, and fill with cheese. Brush egg wash on and bake for 15 minutes.
Take out and make a small well in the center of your khachapuri, and crack an egg in. Bake for 8 more minutes and serve.
