Cheese bourekas is such an easy to prepare and versatile snack preparation that you may serve with any sauce or dip of your choice.
I prefer to prepare my bourekas without the cumbersome flakes as cleaning up is a big task after we all have enjoyed a delightful batch of piping hot cheesy triangles. So, I roll my dough a bit hard with a bit more force to settle the flaky layers of the puff pastry dough.
This way you may happily serve the bourekas as a non-messy cocktail snack that your guests may enjoy without worrying about the flakes spoiling their fine clothes!
Lightly grease the aluminum foil with ½ teaspoon of vegetable oil, if using to line the baking tray. You may choose to roll the puff pastry dough with light hands without pressing the dough too hard to get a flaky texture and appearance of the final product. But if you do not enjoy flaky bourekas then you may roll the dough by pressing it too hard and with a firm hand to get a crisp texture but a non-flaky appearance. Crack open the egg very carefully so that no piece of shell is present and the yolk remains intact.
