This Khachapuri recipe is a combination of fluffy homemade bread, cheese and a runny egg in the center. This is irresistible!


  • 120ml (½ cup) warm water
  • 7g dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 550g (4 ½ cups) flour
  • 250ml (1 cup) warm milk
  • Beaten egg
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 egg yolks
  • Grated cheese
  • Ricotta


  1. Mix sugar, yeast, and warm water in a bowl.
  2. Wait 5 minutes and add warm milk, oil, and beaten egg. Mix well. Gradually add the flour while mixing.
  3. Get a smooth dough. Knead for 5 minutes with your hands and let stand for 2 hours. Divide the dough into 4 balls and flatten with a rolling pin.
  4. Mix grated cheese and ricotta.
  5. Pour a little on each piece of dough. Curl the top and bottom ends slightly and pinch the corners together to form a boat.
  6. Add more mixture to the center of each boat. Brush beaten egg over the edges. Bake for 14 minutes at 230°C (450°F).
  7. Pour an egg yolk into the center of each boat and return to bake for 1 minute at 230°C (450°F).
