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."

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups diced fully cooked ham
  • 2-1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen broccoli, thawed
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning, optional
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 1 package (16 ounces, 14-inch x 9-inch sheet size) frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • SWISS CHEESE SAUCE:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • Minced fresh parsley, optional

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the ham, broccoli and mozzarella cheese. In a small bowl, beat eggs; stir in the cream, basil, pepper, Italian seasoning if desired and cayenne. Stir into ham mixture; set aside.
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.
