Title: Miniature chicken strudels
Categories: Chicken, Pastry, Appetizers, Canadian
Yield: 1 Servings
20 oz Package frozen spinach,
3 c Diced cooked chicken (or
2 c Ricotta cheese
4 tb Parmesan cheese
2 Egg yolks
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Coarsely ground pepper
32 Phyllo pastry or strudel
1 c Butter, melted
2 c Italian-seasoned bread
Caesar salad croutons
Squeeze spinach to remove all moisture. In a medium bowl, combine
first 7 ingredients. Blend well. Set aside.
Unroll phyllo sheets. Place one sheet on a flat surface. Cover
remaining sheets with a slightly damp kitchen towel. Brush first
sheet with melted butter. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon bread crumbs.
Repeat, using two more sheets. Spoon 1/8 of the chicken mixture along
one short side of stacked buttered sheets, making a strip of filling
about one inch wide. Toll up sheets to enclose filling, tuck ends
under. Using a knife, score top of roll crosswise, making cuts about
1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart. Brush roll with melted butter. Using
a spatula, place roll, seam side down, on a baking sheet. Cover
loosely with a slightly damp kitchen towel. Repeat, using remaining
ingredients to make a total of 8 rolls. Remove towel. Bake strudels
15 minutes at 375F or until golden brown. Slice in to serving pieces
along marking. Serve hot.
** Filled rolls can be frozen before baking. Place each roll on a flat
surface and freeze until firm. Then, wrap individually in plastic
wrap, then foil. Store in freezer. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.
Makes about 96 appetizers.
Funny story with this recipe:
My brother and I had planned a surprise 35th anniversary party for my
parents in 1991. My brother bought the supplies and I spent about 3
weekends cooking and baking for the big day. I did all the
preparation for the party at my parent's house. We had told them that
I was getting all this stuff ready for a friend's surprise bridal
shower. As my mom was watching me lose my mind trying to get
everything ready on time [including adding 2 cups of salt to "the
cookie" recipe instead of sugar] she commented: "I'm always amazed at
what you will do for your friends. You'd never do anything like this
for us." Needless to say, the next weekend she [literally] got to eat
her words. HAH!
