Crispy phyllo-based "strudel" with a simple mushroom duxelles filling. Can also be made into triangles for a party appetizer. Freezes nicely (unbaked) so you can make it ahead of time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Saute mushrooms in butter and olive oil till well-softened.
  3. Add sherry, thyme, cream, and salt/pepper and cook till thickened.
  4. Lay out the phyllo sheets, brushing each sheet with melted butter.
  5. Cut in half so you have two equal rectangles.
  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, and bake in oven 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  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.
  12. Use a Tbsp
  13. of the mushroom filling for each one.

No need to worry if your guests & family will love these. They won't last long. I made individual triangles and the receipe made 2 dozen The sherry mellows the flavor of the mushrooms and gives a slight mysterious edge to them. I froze them on a cookie sheet and then in plastic wrap and boxed them. I did add 8 drops of hot sauce. Thanks Tracey K , great recipe

I finally got around to making these last night! We really liked them, though I think next time I will follow S'kat's lead and add a bit of cheese to the mixture. I think that would give it just the right kick of flavor to make this truly outstanding. I made the triangles, and they took about 15 minutes in the oven. Thanks for the recipe, Tracy! :)

I made these as companions to spinach spanakopitta's during canarygirl's Spanakopitta class. They were a hit, though I did make a little change: herbed goat cheese and a bit of parmesan were added to the mushrooms once they came off the heat. Absolute perfection. I made cylinders that were brushed with butter just before being placed into the oven. Unfortunately, there were no leftovers for me. I can't wait to make them again!
