Phyllo Dough Meat Rolls

By The Mediterranean Dish From Yummly

13 Ingredients 48 Minutes 190 Calories



  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small yellow onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (plus 1 cup for later)
  • 5 ounces feta cheese (creamy)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 20 phyllo sheets
  • 1 egg (mixed with little water, egg wash)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a non-stick pan. Add onions and saute briefly on medium-high.
  3. Add ground beef and spices. Cook on medium-high, stirring occasionally, until ground beef is fully cooked and browned (about 8 minutes). Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. When ground beef has cooled, combine it with the additional filling ingredients.
  5. Take 16 phyllo pastry sheets, more if needed, and lay them carefully in a large tray. Cover with a slightly damp kitchen towel (this will keep phyllo pastry from cracking or breaking).
  6. Take two sheets of phyllo and lay them on a large cutting board. Brush phyllo generously with olive oil. With a good knife, cut right down the middle forming two long phyllo strips (see picture)
  1. Take one phyllo strip and begin to make your first roll. Take a spoonful of the meat-cheese mixture and place on the short end of phyllo strip (the end closest to you). Roll away from you two times.
  2. Fold in the phyllo strip sides all the way, and then continue to roll phyllo toward the other end (see picture).
  3. Brush with a little more olive oil and egg wash. Place your first phyllo roll on a large and lightly oiled baking sheet. Repeat with the other phyllo strip.
  4. Repeat with the process with remaining phyllo, working with two phyllo sheets at-a-time. You should end up with 16 phyllo dough meat rolls lined up nicely in your large baking sheet.
  5. Place the phyllo rolls in the 400 degree F oven. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven. Serve warm.
  7. You can add your favorite yogurt dip or sauce next to these phyllo meat rolls for dipping.
