Sigara boregi is a Turkish cigarette- shaped pastry made with feta cheese and phyllo dough. This savory pastry is perfect with coffee, but can be eaten as an appetizer or side dish. I like to eat them for breakfast. These are seriously addicting. If you can find fresh or packaged Yufka, that’s the way to […]
