Lamb Broccoli Strudel Recipe

When my husband was on his second helping of this dish, I surprised him by telling him the ingredients— two foods he's not especially fond of. Now he asks for this dish often!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground lamb or pork
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped fresh broccoli, blanched
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 20 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. In a skillet, cook lamb and onion over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and cool. In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, cheese, sour cream, bread crumbs, garlic, seasoned salt and pepper. Mix in meat and onion.
  • 2. Place 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a piece of waxed paper. Brush with butter; continue layering with 9 more sheets of dough, brushing each with butter. Keep remaining phyllo dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out. Spoon half of the meat mixture on dough. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with the short end.
  • 3. Place the roll, seam side down, on a greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Brush tops of rolls with remaining butter. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 6 servings.
