Indulge in the flavors of Georgia with Khachapuri, a beloved traditional dish that's as delicious as it is comforting. This iconic Georgian cheese bread, filled with gooey cheese and topped with a golden egg, is a culinary masterpiece that will transport you to the streets of Tbilisi with every bite.


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon active dry yeast

1/2 cup warm milk

1/4 cup warm water

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cups grated cheese (such as mozzarella, feta, and sulguni)

2 eggs

2 tablespoons butter, melted


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, sugar, and yeast. Add the warm milk, warm water, and olive oil to the dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes, or until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the dough into four equal parts. Roll out each piece into an oval shape. Place 1/2 cup of grated cheese in the center of each dough oval. Fold the edges of the dough over the cheese to form a boat shape, leaving a hole in the center. Crack an egg into the center of each Khachapuri boat. Brush the edges of the dough with melted butter. Bake the Khachapuri in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly. Serve hot, with additional melted butter drizzled on top if desired.


Enjoy Khachapuri hot out of the oven, with a side of fresh herbs and a glass of Georgian wine for an authentic culinary experience. This cheesy delight is perfect for sharing with friends and family, or simply indulging in on your own.

Khachapuri is more than just a bread it's a symbol of Georgian hospitality and culinary prowess. With its irresistible combination of cheese, bread, and egg, Khachapuri is sure to win over your taste buds and become a favorite in your kitchen.
