Zaatar is well known Arabic herb. It is sort of thyme, very fragrant and versatile. It is widely used in Bulgaria as well, there it is called “chubrica” and we use it dried as a condiment to almost everything we cook.

I saw this recipe from my Instagram friend Petites Choses . I have to tell you I started looking for fresh zaatar in every shop I go. Well I finally found it and the result is delicious.

Ingredients:

1 pack ready rolled puff pastry
4 eggs
200 ml single cream
100-150 gr Emmental, grated
250 gr white cheese feta type. I used Bulgarian cows milk mature cheese
1 small bunch fresh thyme (zaatar)
salt and pepper

Preparation:

Preheat the oven at 180 C.
Beat the eggs until they become fluffy. Add the cream. Crumble the white cheese  with a fork and add it to the mix. Add the thyme and Emmental. Season with salt and pepper. Mix everything.
Line a pie plate with the dough, let the extra pieces over hang the plate.
Place the mixture on the dough, fold any excess dough onto the center of the plate on top of the egg mixture.
Bake it in the oven for 30 minutes or until the top becomes golden/ brown
