Melted cheese or cheese in oven is a delicious Macedonian specialty, which pizzerias and restaurants usually serve with nicely roasted crispy bread sprinkled with sesame seeds. Cheese in oven is combination of 2-3  different cheeses. If desired, mushrooms, bacon or other dried meat can be added for richer taste.

You'll need 2 smaller earthen pots coated with a little butter or oil.

  3. Add the crushed white cheese above.
  4. Add the remaining grated yellow cheese on top and add some tomato paste on top.
  5. Put prepared dishes in the oven at 200 degrees and bake until the cheese on top is nicely melted and gets a beautiful golden color.
