Layers of phyllo crust help the savory filling in these turnovers stay hot longer than most appetizer fillings would--so you can save the warming tray for another appetizer.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add mushrooms and shallots; cook, stirring constantly, 11 minutes or until mixture appears dry. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients; add to mushroom mixture in skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in yogurt and cilantro.

  • Cut 1 phyllo sheet in half lengthwise (keeping remaining phyllo sheets covered). Lightly coat phyllo halves with cooking spray, and fold halves in half lengthwise to form strips. Working with 1 strip at a time, spoon 1 tablespoon mushroom mixture onto base of strip. Fold right bottom corner over mixture to form a triangle; keep folding back and forth into a triangle to end of strip. Repeat entire procedure with remaining phyllo sheets and mushroom mixture.

  • Place triangles, seam side down, on baking sheets. Lightly coat tops with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately.
