Beefy phyllo roll

I've been playing around with phyllo a lot lately, and can you blame me? It is kind of fantastic.. flaky, light, crunchy, golden, beautiful, it's so many good things at the same time!

Anyway, so here's another playful result, a beefy phyllo roll:

The fantastic thing about this is that you can use any leftover ground beef filling you'd like. I had a bit leftover from my cupcake lasagna red layer bolognese (recipe here), and viola, a quick delicious meal.

Beefy phyllo roll
Servings: 2
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 40 min
Total time: 45 min

10 sheets phyllo dough, thawed
1 cup bolognese style ground beef in red sauce
1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350F. Separate the first phyllo sheet and brush with olive oil. Layer the second sheet on top and brush again. Repeat until all layers have been brush and layered on top of each other. Spread the cup of meat on top, and finish with the crumbled cheese. Make sure you leave about 1 inch of free phyllo at the end. Brush the free phyllo strip with oil. Begin rolling from the bottom, and place the roll with the fold down on an oil-coated cooling rack.

Brush the top of the roll with some oil. Cut the roll into slices, but do not slice all the way through. Place the cooling rack on a baking sheet and bake at 350F for 40 minutes, until the phyllo is crispy and golden.

When done, let it cool for just a bit and serve still warm! The goat cheese was so creamy and mixed so well with the red sauce, it rocked!!
