Winter Squash Strudel

84 oz Batch Size
84 Portion per Batch
Unit Ingredients
6 oz garlic, roasted
32 oz pumpkin
32 oz acorn squash
 1/8 oz Salt
 1/8 oz Pepper
2 oz Olive oil
1 oz fresh sage leaves, chopped
1 oz fresh nutmeg
10 oz goat cheese
10 oz spinach
32 oz frozen phyllo dough, defrosted
6 oz butter

Split the acorn squash and pumpkin in half, scoop out the strings and seeds, and put the halves in a glass baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and a little salt and pepper, then either bake in a 350°F oven for about 50 minutes, until the flesh is very soft and can be removed from the skin with a fork.

Scrape the acorn squash and pumpkin out of its skin and mash very well with a fork. Squeeze the garlic out of out of the cloves and mash with a fork. Put the garlic in a large frying pan over medium heat and add the sage leaves. Fry until fragrant, then add the acorn squash and cook until squash is warmed through. Set aside until slightly cooled.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked squash and garlic with the nutmeg, and goat cheese. Stir well and taste. Add more salt and pepper if it needs it.

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Melt the butter in a small bowl and add the olive oil. On a large piece of wax paper, lay out your first sheet of phyllo dough. Brush it with the butter, and then stack another sheet on top. Repeat until you have about 10 layers. (You can use less than this; I just like to make mine a little thicker.) Spread about a third of the squash mixture over the sheet of phyllo, leaving an inch of room at the edges, then roll up from the long side, tucking the ends in. Pick up the wax paper and carefully roll the strudel off the paper and on to a large baking sheet.

Repeat to make two more strudels. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until they are golden and crispy. Cut into slice and serve right away. Or, if these have to wait a little, you can recrisp them in the oven at 400°F.

***** The recipes are mostly listed in oz but remember that this is cooking and it’s all about how it taste so us it more as a guide line for what to use**** These are my ideas and recipes and have been tested by me at NECI.
