Borekas are the classic Israeli grab-and-go food. The Israel Day Parade and Shavuot are a week apart this year, and these goodies are on the menu for both events. Prepping ahead is key, and these can be made and frozen before the big meal.

Make the Borekas
Crumble feta and mix with eggs in a medium mixing bowl. Chop olives and add to feta mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
To fill borekas: Lay puff pastry squares on a piece of Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper. Using a teaspoon, place a spoonful of feta mixture in the center of each puff pastry square. Form a triangle and pinch to seal. Use a fork to crimp.
Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Beat egg and brush each boreka. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 15–18 minutes, or until golden.
