 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           minced mushrooms
    2      cloves        garlic -- minced
      1/4  cup           minced onion
      1/4  cup           sherry
    1      teaspoon      olive oil
    3      tablespoons   chopped parsley
      1/2  cup           crumbled feta cheese
      1/4  cup           grated low-fat mozzarella cheese
      1/4  teaspoon      dried oregano
      1/4  teaspoon      dried thyme
      1/4  pound         finely minced smoked turkey or ham -- trimmed of fat
   15      sheets        filo dough
      1/3  cup           unsalted butter -- melted
 
 1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, saute mushrooms, garlic, and
 onion in sherry and olive oil until soft. Add parsley, feta, mozzarella,
 oregano, thyme, and turkey. Remove from heat.
 
 2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil two 9- by 12-inch baking sheets.
 
 3. Lay filo dough on a clean, dry surface. Cut each sheet in half
 widthwise to make 30 smaller sheets. Stack them evenly on top of each
 other, and cover with a piece of plastic wrap and a slightly dampened dish
 towel as you do the next step.
 
 4. Butter 1 sheet and cut into 3 long strips. Lay the 3 strips on top of
 each other. Place about 2 tablespoons of filling in the lower right
 section near the edge. Fold bottom right corner of filo over filling to
 meet left edge, creating a small triangle. Continue folding pastry, as you
 would a flag, until you reach the top. You will end up with a
 triangle-shaped pastry.
 
 5. Lightly butter top of filled triangle and place on prepared baking
 sheet. Repeat process until all the filling has been used.
 
 6. Bake pastries until golden (20 minutes). Serve warm.
 
 Makes 30 pastries.

 NOTES : Spoonfuls of savory filling are layered on thin filo dough, which
 is then folded into triangles.  Prepare the pastries ahead and freeze for
 entertaining.
