It was a great first morning. We discovered a traditional breakfast dish of Bulgarian Fried dough, or Mekitsi. A delicious and decadent way to start the day in this beautiful country.
2 lb Flour
1 lbs Plain Yogurt (or you can use regular milk)
Packet of Yeast ( or 1 t Baking soda)
1 C Water,
1/2 t Salt

Add yeast to some lukewarm water 105-110°, let bubble for about 5 minutes. Whisk Eggs, Yogurt and water till smooth. Incorporate flour gradually till soft dough. Let it rest for 1 hour. Roll out to 1/4" and use doughnut cutter or a glass. Heat oil to 350° and Fry till golden brown. Sprinkle on powdered sugar, or serve with jam, White Bulgarian Cheese or Honey.
