Ham 'n' Broccoli Triangles

 Ham 'n' Broccoli Triangles
Rebekah Soued from Conifer, Colorado shares these light and flaky pastry triangles. "I usually use left-over spiral ham for the centers," she says. "With the creamy white sauce and a sprinkle of parsley on top, they are a sure-pleaser."

Ham 'n' Broccoli Triangles (continued)

Directions (continued)

  • On a work surface, carefully remove one sheet of phyllo dough and
  • fold in thirds lengthwise (keep remaining phyllo covered with
  • plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out).
  • Lightly brush phyllo strip with butter. Place a rounded
  • tablespoonful of filling in lower right corner of strip. Fold dough
  • over filling, forming a triangle. Fold triangle up, then fold over,
  • forming another triangle. Continue folding, like a flag, until you
  • come to the end of the strip.
  • Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets and filling. Place triangles on
  • ungreased baking sheets. Brush with butter. Bake at 375° for
  • 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk
  • in flour until smooth; add milk and salt. Bring to a boil; cook and
  • stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in
  • Swiss cheese until melted. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Serve
  • with triangles. Yield: 40 appetizers.
