Come On Up To The House

Phyllo Rolls

We are still under quarantine, and attempting to use up what is in the fridge. I accidentally opened phyllo dough last week thinking it was puff pastry. So in an attempt to use it up, I made a recipe that was found on the box for phyllo pizza. It was fine, but was left with half of the box of dough and no idea what to do with it. I didn’t feel like making it into Baklava. We ended up coming up with two different recipes (very different and worth a try). These two rolls turned out to be perfect and very easy. One is obviously sweet and one roll we enjoyed with cocktails.

Feta Phyllo Rolls

8 oz Feta Cheese
1 egg
1/2 cup fresh herbs (Basil, Parsley, Mint & Chives)
1/2 stick of butter
8 sheets of Phyllo Dough

Mix together the cheese, egg and herbs and set aside. Cover a baking sheet with a Silpat and use that as your work and prep area. Melt the butter and brush butter onto half of the phyllo. Fold the other half over and press down. Cut up the middle of the folded phyllo sheet to make two lengths. Put your cheese mixture along the bottom of both prepped sheets and roll up. Do this with all 8 sheets. Butter the tops of the rolls before you bake.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Nutella Phyllo Rolls

1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 stick of butter
8 sheets of Phyllo Dough

Put the Nutella into a piping bag and set aside until ready.

Prep the phyllo sheets by placing either one whole sheet out and buttering and cover with another phyllo sheet or doing the method above by buttering half of the sheet and folding over. Cut into 4 lengths (if doing the whole sheet). Pipe the Nutella along the bottom of the sheet and then roll up. Butter the tops of the rolls before you bake.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until gold brown on the top. Let cool before you enjoy.
