Ralitsa's Famous Sirene po Shopski

I don't know whether there's a good translation of Sirene po Shopski (say it, "SEE-ren-ay po SHOP-ski"), although I've seen various interesting attempts on restaurant menus around town. Maybe "shoppe-style baked white cheese", although that doesn't sound terrible appealing. And trust me...this is a delicious dish.

Here's Rali's recipe...

What you need:

How to make it:

Take two small earthware pots with lids ("gyuveche" pots) and put a layer of cheese, then a layer of peppers and tomatoes, then more cheese. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Then break an egg on top of each dish and cook till the egg is the consistency you like. Serve with salad and beer. Enjoy!
