A very nice recipe. I like the choice of cheeses, but thought the dish was missing something. Next time I will add some italian herbs, but overall we really enjoyed this dish. I had enough filling for two rolls, so we'll be enjoying this again later in the month.
This was delicious. We did not freeze and cook - we ate it the night I prepared it. At first I was going to substitue the gruyere cheese because it was so expensive but it really made the dish. Also, I must have bought the wrong size phyllo dough because I had enough filling to make two rolls. I was confused at first about how to roll it up but figured it out quickly. I also used more than 6 sheets and probably should have stuck with 6!
Made this as directed (yes, even included the mushrooms!) & then froze half, while the 2 of us happily ate the rest as part of a comforting salad-&-roll supper! I always have both cubed & shredded chicken in the freezer so that made for an even easier preparation! We really liked the combination of cheeses used here! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
