Ground Meat Phyllo Rolls Recipe


Minced Meat Borek Recipe

Normally, I don’t really like ground meat in phyllo dough and pastries. However, I don’t always cook or bake according to what I like or not. They taste so good the moment they come out of the oven that even I eat 2 or 3 pieces. This is also one of those freezer friendly recipes. Once they cool down, you can freeze them, then thaw and heat them up them up whenever you want or need. That way, you can enjoy them with zero effort! Isn’t that the best?:)
