Cheese & Potato Tartlets
Gizadas de patata i kezo
The Sephardim of Rhodes Island have a repertoire of savory pies that have become indescribably popular as delicious snacks.
We make a savoury version of the sweet cheese tartlets melitinia, from the Greek islands, gizadas de patata i kezo. These dainty gizadas have a thin crisp pastry pleated into a star shape encasing a luscious potato, cheese and egg filling.
The elegant tartlets evoke such fond memories of my childhood family gatherings. I remember my mother lovingly hand-crafting these exquisite gizadas especially during the festival of Shavuot.
I hope your loved ones enjoy these heavenly nibbles. Wishing you all a blessed week
