Chorizo Goat Cheese Rolls

I thought I had posted these already, but apparently I have not.  These are a must have recipe for BBQs and all sorts of gatherings.  They are very fast, require few ingredients, and you can make them ahead of time and throw them into a preheated oven when guests first arrive.  And if you're me you can forget about them until they  have cooked a full 10 minutes longer than they were suppose to and they will forgive you and still be delicious!

Goat Cheese and Chorizo Rolls
Hmmmm... Not sure.  Foodnetwork or Food and Wine... I think, leaning towards Food and Wine but don't quote me on that


8 ounces soft goat cheese
1 cup chopped dry chorizo
1 ½ tablespoons minced chives
Salt and pepper
Phyllo dough
Melted butter


Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. In a bowl, blend goat cheese, chopped chorizo, and minced chives; season with salt and pepper. Brush one 12 by 16 inch sheet of phyllo with melted butter. Top with 2 more phyllo sheets, buttering lightly; cut the phyllo into 6 rectangles. Place a tablespoon of filling at the base of each rectangle and roll up the phyllo, folding in the sides. Set the rolls on baking sheets. Repeat twice more to make 18 rolls total. Brush the rolls with butter; bake for 10 minutes, until golden. Serve.

  1. This is my first visit to your blog but it won't be my last. I stopped by to than you for visiting me and planned only to say hello. I started reading your older posts and stayed far longer than I'd intended. I really like your food and the tone of your blog. As an aside, you correctly picked the 3 countries we'll be visiting. Have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary
