Bratwurst And Apple Phyllo
|Unsalted butter||1 Tablespoon|
|Granny smith apples/Macintosh / other tart apples||2 Medium, peeled, finely chopped|
|Lemon juice||1 Teaspoon|
|Ground coriander||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Grated fresh ginger||2 Teaspoon|
|Phyllo sheets||12 (adjust quantity as needed)|
|Melted unsalted butter||1⁄2 Pound|
Remove the sausages from the casings and chop into very small dice.
Saute in 1 tablespoon butter, browning lightly.
Add the chopped apples and saute until apples soften slightly.
Add the lemon juice, coriander and ginger and mix well.
Cut the phyllo lengthwise into 4 strips.
Place on damp cloth and cover with damp cloth to prevent phyllo from drying out.
Working with one or two strips at a time, brush with melted butter.
Fold over about 1/4 inch of the bottom edge.
Add a spoonful of the filling at the bottom edge and fold over to form a triangle.
The folding is done as if you were folding an American flag from point to point.
Place seam side down on baking sheets.
When all the triangles have been made, brush tops with melted butter.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, until the tops are brown.
Freeze or refrigerate if desired.
To serve, defrost if desired or reheat from frozen state.
Reheat room temperature triangles at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
Reheat frozen triangles at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
NOTE TO COOK: Carry to party either on baking sheet or in container, already defrosted if they were frozen.
Bake and serve warm.
Try to buy phyllo that has never been frozen.
It is easier to work with.
If you can find handmade, it is the best of all.
