KOMPLET-LEPINJA

This is a well-known traditional dish that originates from Užice.

It is actually a bun or a flatbread cut in half, coated in kajmak, and filled with an egg, before being slightly baked. What gives the bun a specific taste is a mixture of warm meat drippings that is then poured over its halves.

When loosely translated from Serbian, komplet-lepinja means a bun with everything in it. It is highly caloric, often paired with yogurt or sour milk.

Although komplet-lepinja can be found throughout the West Serbia region often with additional ingredients such as pršuta or ćevapi, people from Užice will always recommend Kod Šuljage bakery that makes a genuine one according to the traditional recipe.
