Za’tar and cheese make the perfect pair! Add some falafel to the mix and you’re in straight heaven on the weekend for that perfect middle eastern breakfast. Here I have a quick and easy pastry ring recipe for you to make that takes almost no time and has amazing results. This za’tar and cheese pastry rings goes so well with the falafel post I have on here. Try it for yourself and see!
2 Cans of Crescent Rolls
½ cup Za’tar
¾ cup Olive Oil
½-¾ cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F
Unroll both cans of dough and separate them into their triangles.
Using a large non-stick cookie sheet (feel free to line with parchment paper for less mess), arrange triangles in a circle and let them overlap. You want the short sides of the triangles to touch. Press them down together to ensure they stick. This will make a circle in the center and the pointed parts will stick out around the edge
In a bowl, mix the olive oil and za’tar together to create a paste. Spread the paste over the dough in the center.
Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the za’tar and then slowly bring each dough triangle up and over the filling. Tuck it under the bottom layer of dough and press down to make sure it sticks.
Repeat this step around the entire ring until it’s all closed up. It’s okay if some of the cheese and za’tar shows, when it bakes it’ll have a nice golden color to it.
Bake it for about 20-22 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.
Cool for approximately 5 to 10 minutes before transferring on to a nice serving dish. I like to serve mine with a bowl of labneh in the center for dipping. You can also arrange fresh veggies around it such as cucumbers, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and pickles. Serve and enjoy! <3
