Warm melted brie and sauteed mushrooms are wrapped in a phyllo triangle. Great for parties! These are time consuming to make, but extremely elegant.
Original recipe makes 25 appetizers
1 cup butter, divided
8 crimini mushrooms, sliced
6 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (8 ounce) wedge Brie cheese
1 (16 ounce) package frozen phyllo pastry, thawed
2 hrs 30 mins
- Melt 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Saute crimini and shiitake mushrooms with garlic until tender. Remove from heat, and set aside. Melt remaining butter in a dish in the microwave.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Unroll the phyllo dough, and cut into three equal strips, about 3×12 inches. I like to use kitchen shears for this. Place two sheets of the phyllo onto a cutting board or other work surface, and cover the stack of remaining sheets with a damp paper towel to keep them from drying out.
- Brush the top sheet of phyllo with melted butter, and place a raspberry sized dab of brie on one end. Top with a small amount of the mushroom mixture. Fold phyllo dough over the filling to make a triangle. Continue folding back and forth in a triangle shape, brushing the exposed side of the dough as you go. Seal the end closed with a little water or butter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, and repeat with remaining dough and filling.
- Bake the triangles for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, turning over once during baking, until golden brown.
