Lagana with Tahini

 This turned out to be scrumptious.  One step up from the usual flatbread

NOT traditional

Flatbread with cheese on top and ouzo and tahini in the dough

The dough rose quite a lot even though I flattened it out.  It tasted like a cheese scone to me and I cut it into triangles, split it in the middle and slathered it in butter and honey.  A delicious cheese scone with honey

Ingredients -

300 grams flour 

100 grams fine semolina 

1 dessertspoon dried yeast 

1 tbsp tahini 

1 shot glass of ouzo or some other alcohol, whiskey perhaps?

Oil about one shot glass

Tsp salt 

About a mug of water for mixing  

Make a nice soft dough, leave to rise for about an hour.  Flatten out into an oval shape. Brush with oil and top with grated cheese.

Bake about 20 minutes in a hot oven till golden brown

Other Possible Toppings -

Sliced onion 

Chopped olives 



Chopped sun dried tomatoes


  1. That sounds bl**dy lovely. Can you send some over here please?

  2. Mmmmm, sounds so good. I love cheesy bread!

    1. That cheesy bread was better than expected

  3. Oh, that sounds sooooooo good!

  4. Thank you thank you thank you. Looks like that is what we will be spending Paska making and eating (might drink the ouzo and put aniseed in the bread.....) Have a good Paska
