Look at the crust! Flaky, buttery crust!
I made this casserole over the weekend. It was the perfect Saturday night meal and nice change from the usual pizzas and pasta dishes we usually do on the weekends!
I need to cook with Greek ingredients more often! I mean wow, this blew the family away! There is so much flavor in the dish and the phyllo dough is just so good. I mean like really good. And the fact that it’s oozing with creamy cheese just makes it that much better!
If you are not familiar with phyllo dough it is paper-thin sheets of dough used for making pastries. It is commonly used in a lot greek inspired dishes. I put my own little twist on this dish and used some spicy italian chicken sausage and creamy Havarti cheese!
I used chicken sausage instead of pork to lighten up the dish and make it a little more health friendly, it turned out really great and made the dish much less of a grease fest! If you cannot find chicken sausage I am sure a spicy italian pork sausage will work as well.
The flavors are out of the world good and I mean really out of this world! The spicy italian chicken sausage adds a really great kick to the dish, well creamy Havarti cheese just puts it over the top. Combine this with the phyllo dough and you have a winning combination!
Another bonus, this dish is impressive enough to make for a dinner party and can be prepared in advance and even frozen for a quick and delicious weeknight meal.
So happy for leftovers!
