Beef and Filo Cigars; the update — 11 Comments

  1. These look delicious! And now I’m wondering about homemade wonton wrappers. The ones at the nearest takeout are flaky, as if rolled and folded, like croissant dough. But the wonton recipes online briefly scanned don’t mention anything like that. Hmm…

  2. Good food to go with the decorations, and I have to try this as an alternative to my stable cigars with feta and spinach.

  3. THERE IS NO BUTTER IN THIS!!!! I CAN EAT IT!!! I’m so excited to try this! (if you couldn’t tell 🙂

  4. Tanna, it’s been a long, long time since I’ve seen them….
    Dan, I’ve never seen wonton wrappers, home-made or otherwise… but I think I’m very happy with the phyllo
    Italian Notes, spinach and feta are next on my list….
    manningroad, they were really easy, actually… And a glass of wine helps.
    Val, slowly, slowly….
    Lydia, I don’t remember why I switched to olive oil, but I really like the results.
    Michelle, no butter – actually, there is ‘no butter’ in most of my recipes!
    5 Star Foodie, thanks! We liked them LOL

    • I’ve never tried it – but I would wrap them tightly in clingfilm without brushing with oil the final time, and freeze (before baking). Thaw, then unwrap, brush with oil and bake. I wouldn’t freeze after baking… The crust might not retain its crispness.
