My Yummy Local Life

{July 17, 2012}   Fatayer- Our own version

As I mentioned 2 sunday’s ago, we were going to try to re-create this thing called fatayer we had at a local restaurant: Mediterranean Deli.  The Hubby did a pretty awesome job so I wanted to share it:

Homemade Fatayer

I made this lavash cracker dough so that he could roll it out pretty thin (dough recipe adapted from Bread Baker’s Apprentice)

1 1/2 c white flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp yeast

1 Tbsp honey

1 Tbsp vegetable oil

1/3 to 1/2 cup room temperature water

Stir everything together- add just enough water to bring it all together and then knead for about 10 minutes.  Let rise for around 90 minutes and then roll out to form the base for the boat.


1/2 red onion, sliced

spices: (to taste) cumin, Ras el henout, paprika, coriander, cardamom

2-4 oz feta cheese

1/4 cup (ish) yogurt

3 eggs

Cook onions until soft with spices, salt and pepper

Mix onions with cheese and yogurt

Shaped dough into a round

Spread onion mixture in middle

Fold sides of dough to look like a boat

Crack eggs on top

Cook on pizza stone at 375F for about 20 minutes (or higher heat for less time) until the dough is cooked

Let cool, slice and enjoy the yumminess


I have never heard of this before…looks delish! thanks for linking up 🙂
