Asparagus and Gouda In Phyllo
Okay...so this was delicious!! So good! I loved it, if I may say so myself. It was even good leftover, cold, straight out of the fridge.
No recipe...just an idea I thought up. I'm sure there are recipes out there, but you really don't need them. All you need to know are flavours you like together and give it a shot.
What I did was I took one sheet of phyllo and brushed melted butter on it, then put another sheet on and brushed more melted butter. Then I sprinkled a generous amount of shredded gouda along the bottom and put a few spears of cooked asparagus on it. Fold over the sides, roll it up, brush butter on top...bake it. I think I did 375 for about 16 or so minutes...just until golden brown.
Now here is what I'd do different next time. Slice the phyllo in half (vertically) before rolling up so they weren't so long. I'd, also, maybe undercook the asparagus or grill them (I did mine in the oven with olive oil). They were a bit floppy and hard to bite.
I love phyllo. I'm dreaming up new ideas for my left over sheets.
-cream cheese, bananas and caramel sauce
-prosciutto, asparagus and cheese
-cheese cheese and more cheese
I love cheese too.
