Mantije are a dish made of phyllo dough using fillings of various types into small bite size pieces. In Serbia, mantije are rolled into dough squares, while in Bosnia and Herzegovina they are rolled in small sticks.  Traditionall, the filling is made from minced beef meat with fried onion, chicken meat, or cheese and spinach mixture. We have developed a chocolate option too. They were named after the uniform of Orthodox priests - the mantle. These small tasty snacks provide customers with a unique taste of tradition. Customers can buy them frozen and bake them in their homes to enjoy the special taste and aroma. We started production of mantije in 2019.  A fast lifestyle and a desire for good flavors have led us to another traditional delicacy. Our Mantije are proof that good taste can last a generation.
