Banitsa is a traditional Bulgarian meal and has very special place on the table on all traditional holidays. It can be done with different fillings like spinach, leaks, minced meat and other fillings; one thing is always the same – the phyllo pastry. Bantisa with white cheese is the most popular. It is served best with an extra bowl of plain yoghurt. It is my favorite breakfast. This recipe is my mom’s recipe and there are some small variances of the preparation in the different areas of the country. Some people use oil instead of butter (or margarine), some people do not use yoghurt but milk, some do not use milk and yoghurt at all, only eggs and white cheese. When we use only eggs and milk we call it milk banitsa.
