Savory Phyllo Wraps

This is not a sweet treat, but I got approval from the tiniest sweet tooth in my house (my daughter) to post it. You can actually put any fillings in them, salty or sweet.

Makes about 8

  • 4 sheet phyllo pastry, thawed
  • 1 large baking potato
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon garlic and herb cream cheese spread
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 4 to 6 strips of bacon, cut into small pieces
  • Seasoning salt, to your taste
  1. Cook bacon in non-stick pan over low to medium heat until crispy, put on paper towel to drain
  2. Peel, cut potato into big chunks and put in boiling water, cook until tender, about 20 minutes
  3. Drain and mash potato, add 1 tablespoon of butter, milk, cream cheese and seasoning salt, mix well
  4. Add bacon into mashed potato
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F
  6. Place 1 sheet of phyllo sheet flat, brush lightly with remaining melted butter, put a second sheet on top and brush again with butter. Repeat with 2 more sheets of phyllo
  7. Cut phyllo stack into 8 squares, (about 6 inch x 6 inch each), place each piece into a muffin cup, spoon filling into cup, fold edges over and press gently
  8. Brush top with butter
  9. Bake for about 20 minutes or until slightly golden brown

When cooking the bacon, you can save the bacon fat and mix it into the mashed potato instead of the butter.
