[a rich dish, brilliant for lunch at work served hot, or warm]

the dough :
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup warm water
2 tbl spoons oil
1/2 spoon oregano 
dash of salt

mix ingredients; knead for about 2-3 minutes; adding flour to until it
doesn't stick to the hands - separate into 3 equal parts

the filling :

a couple of chopped green shallots (can replace with 1/3 white onion)
1/3 cup finely chopped parsley
2 cups feta cheese , crumbled
1/3 cup freshly grated romano cheese
1/2 cup whole milk or better still, half & half
3 eggs
salt, pepper, thyme

beat eggs;
mix all other ingredients; heat in pot until cheese starts melting;
allow to cool to room temperature; then mix in eggs

the assembly :
roll out the 3 dough balls- so that each one is a bit bigger than your
baking pan (i use 8x12 in.)- the amount of dough, for that size will
give you the right thickness

place the first layer on the greased pan, with ends hanging over the
pan rim - add half the filling

follow on with the second dough layer -add the rest of the filling

finish off with the last dough layer; fold the dough layers together

pluck a few holes, making sure you go through the second layer of

bake for 3/4 hour at around 400F

enjoy, with a simple tomato and cucumber salad
