Cheese patty with olive oil and yoghurt

April 10, 2011

Quick and light these cheese patties are and all you need for those times that you suddenly have a strong desire for something salty: occasionally at home or permanently at the office!

By Evi Papadopoulou (Gourmet magazine)


Use the yoghurt cup for measuring all the other ingredients.

  • 1 cup of yoghurt (200 gr)
  • 1 cup of olive oil (200 gr)
  • 1 cup of feta cheese in small pieces (200 gr)
  • 1 cup of other grated cheese (200 gr of gouda, gruyere, cheddar or anything you have)
  • 2 eggs + 1 for spreading
  • 500 gr self-raising flour (you can use wholemeal flour as well)
  • 1 tsp salt (not full and optionally)
  • Sesame, black sesame, sunflower seeds (optionally for powdering)


1.      In your mixer’s bowl mix together the yoghurt with the olive oil.

2.      Add one by one the 2 eggs and add all the cheese (feta and others), mix for a while and turn the mixer off.

3.      Add the flour little by little and sifted and mix with a big spoon and then with your hand until you get a soft dough. Put it in the fridge for 30’ and preheat the oven at 356ο F.

4.      After the 30’ take a baking sheet and place a piece of baking paper. Shape round or long cheese patties and put them on the sheet with a distance between them because they rise.

5.      Spread them with the 1 egg (beaten) and powder with sesame or anything you want on their surface.

6.      Bake for 20-30’ until they are golden.

    I stumbled upon your website while looking for tiropitakia alternatives as I am a crazy cheese fanatic.
    I made your recipe with my kids, cut them into cars and sharks, decorated with pepitas and sunflower seeds they dissapeared in minutes!. Seems like the cheese loving gene is not exclusive to me.
    Thanks for a great website.
