I was lucky enough to meet our lovely Jenny a couple of years ago when she swung through Toronto. She, our favourite Puff of Cream and I spent a few hours together shopping, eating and talking. Jenny is absolutely darling and I'd be so happy to get together with her again.
So when she emailed the event announcement, I knew I wanted to particpate. But what to bring? We'd just done our DB tuiles and although she gave us license to morph them into something housewarmy, I didn't want to go that route.
Given it's winter here in Canada, I thought I'd offer up something warm and savoury to share with the crowd. I decided upon a variant of my bacon, ramp and mushroom swirls--I like the flavour combination: tangy cream cheese, sweet onion and savoury mushrooms. Instead of little spiral rolls, I decided on a mini-springroll like offering, this time with phyllo.
In general, these mini rolls are very easy to whip up. Just pre-cook and cool the filling prior to spooning it onto the phyllo. Roll them up and bake in a preheated oven (380C/375F) for about 10-15 minutes, or until golden.
As usual, I didn't really write out quantities. Sorry. I know...a bad habit..especially if you want to recreate these...just rough out approximately one to one and a half teaspoon of prepared filling per roll
