I lightened up this recipe a little from the original, and it still tasted pretty amazing. I’ve made this for holidays as the vegetarian alternative, and it’s definitely a crowd pleaser.

A simple recipe which looks impressive and tastes delicious. Can also be made into triangles for a party appetizer.

Ingredients
  1. 1 lb mushroom, sliced
  2. 3 tablespoons butter
  3. 2 tablespoons sherry wine
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  5. 3 tablespoons 2% milk
  6. 1 teaspoon corn flour
  7. salt
  8. fresh ground black pepper
  9. 8 sheets phyllo pastry
  10. spray oil (for spraying phyllo)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C.
  2. Saute mushrooms in butter till well-softened.
  3. Combine the corn flour and milk in a small bowl and whisk until combined and smooth. Add this to the mushrooms along with the sherry, thyme, and salt/pepper and cook till thickened.
  4. Lay out the phyllo sheets, spraying each sheet with spray oil.
  5. Cut in half so you have two equal rectangles (more like squares).
  6. Spread half the mushroom mixture over one of your phyllo rectangles, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges.
  7. Fold the short side edges over the mushroom mixture and then roll the whole thing lengthwise so you have a long, fat cylinder with no mushroom filling poking out.
  8. Repeat with remaining mushroom mixture and the other rectangle.
  9. Place rectangles side-by side, seam-side down, on a baking sheet which has been sprayed with spray oil, and bake in oven 20 minutes or until golden brown. If it gets too brown, cover lightly with foil.
  10. Let rest for 10 minutes, then slice and serve.
  11. **Alternate preparation: Using two phyllo sheets at a time, cut into 6-8 strips and prepare as you would for spanakopita, folding each strip into a triangle. Use a Tbsp of the mushroom filling for each one.
