A tepsi is a deep round baking dish in which a variety of layered savoury pies, using sheets of yufka, are made. Filo can be used instead of yufka. The most common fillings are made with spinach, white cheese and minced meat. Use the spinach filling from ıspanaklı gözleme and the cheese filling from sigara böreği. This recipe is made with the minced meat filling that can also be used in gözleme and sigara böreği. Tepsi böregi is delicious hot or cold, ideal for picnics, snacks, lunch and supper. The size of the pie will be determined by the size of the yufka and the oven-proof dish the dish must be smaller than the sheet of yufka, which should amply fill it and dangle over the sides.
