- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. yeast
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tbsp. oil
- 1 1/2 cup farmer’s cheese
- 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
- 1 1/2 cup feta cheese
- 4 eggs + 1 for egg wash
- butter (optional)
Making the Dough:
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flour, salt, yeast, and sugar. (If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can use a spatula to combine your ingredients.)
- In a saucepan, heat water and milk to about 115 degrees F. Pour into your bowl of dry ingredients and mix.
- Begin kneading the dough until it’s close to being smooth and elastic. Add the oil into the dough and knead for another minute.
- Set the bowl in a warm place until the dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
- Remove the plastic wrap and press into the dough a few times with your hands. Cover with plastic wrap once more and let it sit in a warm place for another 30 minutes.
Shaping the Dough:
- Combine the farmer’s cheese, feta, and mozzarella in a medium bowl.
- Remove the dough from the bowl and place it onto a floured cutting board. Cut it into 4 equal pieces.
- Spread each piece of the dough into a circle about 9 inches in diameter. Roll 2 opposite sides of the circle towards the center so it ends up have a boat-like shape. Pinch the corners together.
- Transfer the khachapuri onto a baking sheet lined with greased parchment paper.
Baking the Khachapuri:
- Stuff each khachapuri with the cheese mixture. Beat 1 egg with a teaspoon of water, then brush the dough with egg wash.
- Bake in a preheated 450 degrees oven for about 15 minutes or until the crust becomes golden brown.
- Make a well in the center of each khachapuri with the back of a spoon (about 3 inches in diameter) and drop 1 egg into each well. Then stick a few small pieces of butter into the cheese.
- Return the khachapuri back into the oven and bake for another 5-6 minutes. Cooking time may vary depending on your oven. The egg white should be white but still pretty runny. It will cook further as it sits in the hot cheese. When serving, mix the cheese and egg with a fork and serve immediately.
