DIRECTIONS

  • Thaw phyllo dough according to package directions. Prepare filling ingredients before removing from package.
  • To prepare filling, mix eggs and all three cheeses.
  • Melt butter.
  • Remove dough from package, placing it on a clean cloth. Cover with a lightly moistened cloth. Everytime you remove sheets of dough, replace the top covering cloth so that your dough does not dry out.
  • Spread some butter on pan. Place two sheets of dough on yet another cloth. Sprinkle butter on the sheets. Put two more sheets on top of it; sprinkle with butter again. Add fifth sheet of dough.
  • At one end of sheets (length wise), about 3 inches from the long edge, place several scoops of the mixture in a log shape. Do not place cheese all the way to the sides; leave a couple inches bare. Roll up. Tucking side edges under the roll, place roll in pan, seam side down. Put more butter on top.
  • Repeat process for more rolls. It works best if pan is filled with rolls. I use a pan typically used for single layer cakes.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for anywhere from 30 - 60 min, until golden brown.
  • Let them rest for a little before cutting.
