Fërgesë Tirane is a baked cheese and vegetable specialty originating from the capital of Albania, Tirana. This dish is made by sautéing the vegetables, while butter and flour are mixed to make a roux with melted cheese set over it. All the ingredients are mixed in small clay pots, seasoned, and baked in the oven. After the dish has slightly cooled down, it is served with crusty bread on the side.
There is also another version (fërgesë me melçi) with meat and garlic. Although, the vegetarian version is mostly served as a side-order, this choice is preferred as the main dish.
