“Serving brunch? Here's a delicious alternative to quiche using phyllo dough. Can be made 1-2 days in advance. Remember phyllo dries out quickly so unroll the bulk sheets, take what you need and cover the rest with a damp cloth. Broken pieces can be used, just brush with melted butter. Return any left over dough back into the box well wrapped.”
12 tartlets
