Mushroom and Onion Bundles

Pin It

Does anyone besides me love Costco? If any of you watch Modern Family, I feel like I can relate to Mitchell. He was a total grocery store snob that would not be caught dead shopping for groceries in a bulk food store.  But once he made it inside, he just couldn't get enough. But who can blame him? They have everything. From TV's to fresh produce to books to clothes. You want it, it's there.

I don't have a Costco membership card (yet), so whenever my parents ask me to tag along with them I never hesitate. We went to Costco the other week and bought a slew of fresh vegetables. The good thing about it was they were a lot cheaper than I would find at a regular grocery store. The bad thing is that I now have an enormous amount of vegetables. In bulk. Vegetables don't stay good forever.

I had some leftover phyllo dough in the freezer, so I decided to use up the rest of my 20 oz. package of sliced mushrooms and one of the 30 yellow onions I have stashed in my refrigerator to make a tasty appetizer. Everything that I used I had on hand, so that made it a lot easier. They came out great!

Enjoy and have a fantastic weekend!

Printable Recipe

Makes 8 bundles

  • 1 package (1 roll) phyllo dough, defrosted
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 2 cups mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and chicken broth. Continue cooking and stirring until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 additional minutes. Turn off heat once done.

Unroll phyllo dough. Working quickly, spray one sheet with cooking spray and layer another sheet on top. Repeat this until you have 4 sheets of phyllo stacked. Do not spray the top layer. Cut the phyllo into four even rectangles (I cut a little extra off each of the four pieces to make it a square).

Place a spoonful of the mushroom mixture into the middle of each square. Gather the corners of the square to create a small bundle. Pinch the corners so they stay closed and place into the muffin tin. Continue with remaining squares, and repeat with the rest of the phyllo dough until mushroom mixture is gone.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
