Ingredients

  • To proof the yeast
  • 5 tablespoons warm water

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast

  • For the dough
  • 5 cups of all-purpose flour, sifted.

  • 7 tablespoons room temperature milk

  • 1 cup of water

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • For the filling
  • 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese

  • 2 cups Feta cheese, crumbled.

  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

  • 2 tablespoons of chopped green onions

  • 6 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  • Prepare the dough
  • In a small bowl, or measuring cup, dissolve yeast with warm water and sugar. Mix and let it sit for 5-8 minutes or until foamy.
  • In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup of water, milk, and mix together. In the same bowl, add 4 1/2 cups of flour, salt, yeast mixture, and olive oil. Mix the dough until well combined.
  • Begin kneading the dough for 10 minutes, until dough is soft and elastic. You may need to add 1-3 tablespoons of water if needed so the dough is not dry. If its too wet, add 1-3 tablespoons of flour at a time.
  • Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and let it double in size for 1 hour. Make sure to place the bowl in a warm and dark place for it to double.
  • After the dough has doubled in size, divide it into 6 even pieces. Cover with a dry towel and leave it on a lightly floured working surface while you prepare the filling.
  • For the filling
  • In a medium bow combine shredded Mozzarella cheese, feta, olive oil, and green onions. Mix until combined.
  • Assembling
  • Preheat oven to 415 degrees F.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out a piece of dough into a circle. Spread about 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture on the dough. Leave about 1 inch of space around the edges.
  • Roll 2 opposite sides of the dough towards the center and tightly pinch the corners.
  • You may need to add more of the cheese mixture onto the center of the dough so it’s not so empty.
  • Transfer the Khachapuri onto a parchment lined baking pan.
  • Finish the process with the remaining pieces of the dough.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  • Remove the Khachapuri from the oven and with the back of the spoon make an indentation in the center of each flatbread.
  • Gently crack an egg and drop it into the indentation. Continue to bake for another 5 minutes until egg white is no longer translucent and the yolk is runny.
  • Remove from the oven. This can be served immediately to enjoy the taste of the runny yolk!
