Chicken, Mozzarella & Gorgonzola Strudel

Strudels are a versatile bunch, really – they can be sweet like the traditional apple strudel, or savoury with either meats or simply vegetarian.  I keep phyllo dough on hand in the freezer for a quick make-ahead meal; I mix the stuffing together in the afternoon and roll it up into the dough, flip it seam-side down on an oven tray lined with baking paper, then score a few steam-vent gashes with a knife, brush it with a bit of cream or whipped egg, and pop it in the cold oven.  330 more words



I started experimenting with phyllo in muffin tin cups years ago and came up with several savory as well as sweet concoctions.  Here is one from the Food Network Magazine that is really easy; if you don’t want to use the store bought cups, it’s easy to make your own with a square of a few sheets of phyllo folded and pressed into a muffin tin cup; a little butter spray helps them to brown.   72 more words
