Things to know about Uzicka Komplet Lepinja Recipe

Uzicka komplet lepinja is a traditional specialty from West Serbia and its most popular mountain Zlatibor. Komplet lepinja is a dish made out of flatbread or pita bread that is cut horizontally, add a slight dent in the middle so it looks like a bowl with a top lid. Inside are traditional products from Uzice like kaymak (Milk produce) and pretop or moča (similar to gravy). It is baked with an egg and you can put any kind of smoked meat on top. This dish is served in the morning and because it is quite heavy on the stomach it is served with a cold milk beverage, like yogurt. It is eaten from the top: first, you eat the lid while dipping it in the egg and cheese, and then eat the rest. Also, traditionally, it is eaten with hands.
