Just posting for the review (Mushroom phyllo bundles)

The only reason I am publishing this post is so you can know how delightful it is.  I ran out of time  to properly blog and photograph it.  I should have know they were delicious since they were from the Pioneer Woman.  She really has some great stuff!

I made these for a Delta Gamma meeting at my house and they got so many compliments!  The flavors melded so well and people thought I bought them!  I have some of the mushrooms leftover and I can't wait to put them to a new good purpose!

Phyllo dough is hard to work with sometimes, but if you are patient and careful it turns out just fine.  I suggest not being a frazzled entertainer like I was and assemble them a head of time, freeze them and then cook them when you are ready.  I was not ready as everyone showed up a half hour early!  Recipe reprinted with my edits below, go here to see her step by step.

Mushroom Phyllo Bundles (Borrowed from the Pioneer Woman, my idol, kind of)

1 package (1 Roll) Phyllo Dough
1 stick Unsalted Butter
4 cups Chopped Mushrooms (I used white and baby bellas)
4 cloves Garlic, Minced
1/2 cup Dry White Wine
Salt To Taste
1/3 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Melt 1/2 stick butter in a bowl. Set aside.

Melt 1/2 stick butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and mushrooms and cook for 1 minutes. Pour in wine, stir to mix, and cook for five minutes, or until all liquid is cooked off. Turn off heat and set aside. Unroll phyllo dough. Cut stack in half. Working quickly, place 1 sheet on a flat surface and brush lightly with melted butter. Place another sheet on top and brush with butter. Repeat this until you have four to five sheets of phyllo. Do not brush top layer with butter. Cut this buttered stack into four equal squares (rectangles). Place a spoonful of mushroom mixture in the middle of each square. Sprinkle Parmesan over the top of each mushroom. Gather each square into a neat little bundle, pinching the neck so that it remains as closed as possible when it bakes. Place bundles on a greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet, pressing lightly so that they're flat on the bottom.  Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve immediately.

Happy Cooking!
