Buried cheese? Yes, buried cheese! You see, that is a direct translation for this recipe’s Assyrian title “Joopta (cheese) Doomirtah (buried).” But don’t worry, I won’t ask you to bury anything, I promise!
Featuring Assyrian, Middle Eastern, and other inspirational recipes
Breakfast, some seem to love it and want to even have it for dinners on occasion, others don’t have time for it, and skip it altogether. But as most of us have probably heard by now, breakfast is the most important part of the day. It kicks off your metabolism and keeps you from snacking on junk until it’s time to have lunch.
Although I usually end up having a shake (for health reasons) many Assyrians do the opposite. A great spread is usually prepared, especially if you have guests. Similar to “mezze,” many options are laid out to satisfy everyone’s taste. This includes Clotted Cream (Geymar), and jam, Basturma (Middle Eastern Cured Breakfast Sausage), and eggs, pita bread, various cheeses, black olives, and plenty of tea!
Like I mentioned in a previous post, I am currently following a low-carb diet. This Assyrian recipe is one of my favorite low-carb breakfast dishes. It’s very simple to prepare, and amazingly good!
