Banitza is one of the most popular and typical Bulgarian dishes, more of a breakfast or snack thing than a main course. There are many shapes and varieties of banitza - with cheese, spinach or butternut squash, but the cheese one is the most common and famous one.

Imambayalda (Babaganoush, Stuffed Eggplants)

This recipe is actually Turkish but it has been deeply rooted in Bulgarian national cuisine ever since the years of the Ottoman Yoke. My grandpa told me that according to the legend, when the Turkish Imam (a ruler of a province) stopped at a small roadside hanche (pub) he asked for a plate for this favorite food of his, called something else at the time. It was prepared so well by the cook that the Imam asked for another one, and another one, and several more after that. He eat so much that at the end he couldn't move but could only say 'Imam bayalda' - meaning 'The Imam feels sick'. He probably passed out after that but that's just a guess.
