• 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 large red onions, cut in half lengthwise and sliced thin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces goat cheese
  • 24 sheets phyllo dough
  • 1 cup melted butter


In a large skillet, heat oil over low heat. Saute onions until caramelized. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat. Bring to room temperature. Crumble cheese into cooled mixture and set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a flattened sheet of phyllo with a pastry brush. Top with another sheet of dough and brush with butter. Cut dough into 6 (2-inch) strips. Place a1 tablespoon of the onion mixture in the bottom left hand corner of each strip. Begin to fold as you would a flag, until each strip is entirely folded. Continue with remaining dough filling. Brush packets with butter and place on parchment lined sheet pan. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden. Recipe courtesy Peter Kump's New York Cooking School.
