Gözleme is a thin dough filled with cheese, meat, or veggies and toasted on a convex grill.

 

Gözleme is a delicious and quick snack widely available throughout Istanbul and Turkey. Thin dough is topped with ingredients often including ground beef, spinach, cheese, potatoes, and parsley. The dough is then folded over and sealed. It is grilled on an open griddle and brushed with oil to make it crispy.

These crunchy-chewy quesadilla like treats are easily found anywhere that large groups of people congregate without any easy restaurants available such as the farmers market, beach, or bus station. Cost is normally 4 or 5 Turkish Lira.
