Ingredients

15 sheets phyllo (filo) pastry sheets
thawed
*
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onions
chopped
1 pound mushrooms
sliced, cremini or button
½ teaspoon thyme
freshly chopped, or 1/4 teaspoon dried
*
3 cloves garlic
minced
salt and black pepper
to taste
*
1 ¼ cups sour cream
2 large eggs
lightly beaten
1 cup mozzarella cheese
*
1 jalapeño pepper
seeded and finely chopped
*
1 tablespoon jalapeño pepper
pickled, finely chopped, optional
1 tablespoon jalapeno pickling liquid
optional
*
½ tablespoon red hot pepper sauce

Directions

Preheat oven to 375℉ (190℃) F. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil on medium high heat until hot.

Add onions, stirring often, and cook for about 5 minutes until soft and start becoming brown.

Stir in mushrooms, and cook for another 6 to 8 minutes, until moisture of mushrooms has released and evaporated and mushrooms are brown.

Add thyme and minced garlic, stirring constantly for 30 to seconds, remove from heat. Season with salt and black pepper.

Whisk together eggs and sour cream in a bowl. Mix in cheese, freshly minced jalapenos, pickled jalapenos and liquid if using, and red hot pepper sauce until well combined. Season with a little salt and black pepper.

At this stage, you need 6 4-inch tartlets or 1 9-inch tart pan with removable botom.

Unroll phyllo sheets, if using tartlets, take 5 sheets out once. Cut 5 sheets into half.

Brush each sheet with a little bit melted butter or olive oil. Line it into tartlet, repeat until 5 halved sheets are used up.

Tack overhanging phyllo inside tartlet and shape it around edge to make a pie-like crust.

Spread about 2 tablespoons of sautéed mushrooms over phyllo dough.

Add about 3 to 4 tablespoons of egg-sour cream mixture over the top of the mushrooms. Repeat until six tartlets are all done.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until nicely browned on top and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes. Remove the rings around tartlets, and serve warm.

If using a 9-inch tart pan, brush each phyllo sheet with melted butter or oil.

Line it into pan, repeat until all of phyllo pastries have been used up. Tack overhanging pastries inside pan around edges to form a crust.

Spread all mushroom mixture evenly over pasty. Place egg-sour cream mixture over mushroom.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or or until nicely browned on top and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let cool for about 10 minutes, slice into wedges and serve warm.

Wow, these mushroom phyllo tartlets were so so so delicious. Sauteed onions and mushrooms were packed with yummy flavor; the mixture of the eggs, sour cream, cheese, fresh and picked jalapenos with juice and hot pepper sauce was unbelievably flavorful.

Cheesy, creamy, and some zing from jalapeno and hot sauce. The phyllo dough made a super crispy and light crust that paired deliciously with the filling.

You can use a regular savory pie crust. Or bake them in muffin tins to make some mini crustless quiche. Either way, it will be too delicious to resist.
