  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min.
  • Makes
    1 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound turkey Italian sausage links, casings removed
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 sheets phyllo dough (14x9-inch size)
  • Cooking spray
  • 12 whole chives, optional

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°. In a large skillet, cook and crumble sausage with onion, red pepper and garlic over medium-high heat until no longer pink, 4-6 minutes. Stir in cheese; cool slightly.
  • Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface; spritz with cooking spray. Layer with two additional phyllo sheets, spritzing each layer. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Cut phyllo crosswise into three strips (about 4-1/2-in. wide).
  • Place a rounded tablespoon sausage mixture near the end of each strip. Fold end of strip over filling, then fold in sides and roll up. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, seam side down. Repeat with remaining phyllo and filling.
  • Bake until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. If desired, tie bundles with chives. Serve warm.
