Put together the milk, and water add the yeast mix a little bit, add the sugar, on other bowl mix the flour with salt, mix all together until you have an even dough, let rest for 2 hours.
Grate the cheese and mix it with 100 ml of milk and one egg.
Take the dough, spreading it into a circle about 9 inches in diameter. Then roll 2 opposite sides of the circle towards the center so it ends up have a boat like shape. Then pinch the corners together, cover and let rest for 1 hour.
