Ingredients

Filling

2 tablespoons
Land O Lakes® Butter
1 1/2 cups
coarsely chopped onions
3/4 cup
chopped fresh mushrooms
1/3 cup
chopped roasted red pepper
2 tablespoons
chopped ripe olives
1/4 teaspoon
salt

Pastry

8 to 12 sheets
frozen phyllo pastry, thawed
1/2 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
1/2 cup
soft spreadable garlic and herb cheese

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. 
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet; add onions. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden and caramelized (4-7 minutes). Stir in remaining filling ingredients. Continue cooking until heated through (1-2 minutes). Set aside. Cool at least 10 minutes.
  3. Unfold phyllo pastry; place between damp towels to prevent drying. Place 1 sheet of phyllo on dry work surface. Lightly brush phyllo sheet with melted butter. Top with second phyllo sheet; brush with butter. Repeat with 2 more sheets, brushing top sheet with butter.
  4. Cut phyllo into 4-inch squares with sharp knife. Place 1 rounded teaspoon onion mixture in center of each square. Top with 1 teaspoon cheese. Pull all four corners of pastry to center; pinch and twist top to seal. Repeat with remaining squares. Place onto ungreased baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining phyllo sheets.
  5. Bake for 16-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

I made these for Christmas Eve last year and they were gone in a matter of minutes. Everyone, including my 5 year old nephew, loved them. They've already been requested for this year's holiday.
