    2 hours 30 min

    Warm melted brie and sauteed mushrooms are wrapped in a filo triangle. Great for parties! These are time consuming to make, but extremely elegant.

    Serves: 25 

    • 250g butter, divided
    • 8 crimini mushrooms, sliced
    • 6 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
    • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 225g Brie cheese
    • 1 packet filo pastry

    1. Melt 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute crimini and shiitake mushrooms with garlic until tender. Remove from heat and set aside. Melt remaining butter in a dish in the microwave.
    2. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    3. Unroll the filo pastry, and cut into three equal strips, about 8x30cm. I like to use kitchen shears for this. Place two sheets of the filo onto a cutting board or other work surface, and cover the stack of remaining sheets with damp kitchen paper to keep them from drying out.
    4. Brush the top sheet of filo with melted butter and place a raspberry-sized dab of brie on one end. Top with a small amount of the mushroom mixture. Fold filo pastry over the filling to make a triangle. Continue folding back and forth in a triangle shape, brushing the exposed side of the pastry as you go. Seal the end closed with a little water or butter. Place on an ungreased baking tray and repeat with remaining filo and filling.
    5. Bake the triangles for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, turning over once during baking, until golden brown.

    I make a recipe very similar to this one, but instead of taking the time to wrap them into phyllo triangles, I buy the pre-made phyllo tartlet shells. Then I simply fill them with the brie and the sherry-sauteed mushrooms and bake them for 5 minutes. So easy and very yummy!  -  17 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were delicious! I made them for our Christmas party & they were the first things gone - and the garlic makes them so tasty, I don't know how anyone could rate them as bland! Instead of cloves of garlic, I used the fresh crushed garlic from the local grocer. I tried them the wrapped way & it was a bit time consuming, so the second batch I simply cut the phyllo into squares & put them in small muffin tins, put in the cheese & topped with the mushroom/garlic mixture. If your squares are big enough, you can still pinch the tops together, but even the ones we left open were beautiful & just as tasty. Will definitely make again and again!  -  06 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    So, basically I'm lazy and instead of hassling with the phyllo I used frozen puff pastry sheets. I rolled them out a little bit flatter than they come originally and with a pizza cutter made small 3" squares. I put a small cube of brie (after freezing for about 20 minutes and cutting off the rind)onto the square, 1/2 teaspoon of the mushroom mix and sealed the triangle. I made them yesterday, froze them and put them in ziplock bags for my party next week. I baked a couple to test them and they're super yummie. I was afraid the garlic would be a bit much but it's perfect. Thanks for this recipe!  -  18 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
