Egyptian "Thalaga cheese"? also, what to do with lots of Lebne?

Chris VR | Mar 1, 2004 08:38 PM

I picked up a waxed cardboard box of this stuff at a Middle Eastern grocery last weekend. It's creamy, tangy, salty and spreadable- sort of a cross between feta and cream cheese. The ingredient list says it's made from Buffalo milk. Very nice stuff, and especially good spread on pita bread. If you're near a Middle Eastern grocery, I recommend picking some up from the refrigerator section.

The carton is mosty Arabic but there is a phrase in English saying "Thalaga cheese" and the company that produces it- "Greenland". I can't find anything on a Google search on that name. I was just curious to find out more about it, and see if there's any other ways to use it other than a spread.

We also accidentally picked up 2 cartons of Lebne and are not sure what to do with it. Any recommended recipes?
