Ralitsa's Famous Gyuveche

Gyuveche (say it, "GYOO-vech-ay") is a popular catch-all dish you can make with just about anything you have in the fridge. It gets its name from the small individual ceramic dishes in which it's traditionally cooked and served. I suppose you could prepare the recipe in a casserole dish, but then you'd have a casserole, not a gyuveche.

Here's Rali's recipe...

What you need (for a single serving):

How to make it:

Chop or dice everything you want to put in. Make alternating layers of cheese, meat, and vegetables, and finish with cheese. Bake in the oven at 200 C (app. 375 F) for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Break the egg on top and put back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes depending on how well-done you like your eggs. Serve with fresh bread or toast. Enjoy!
