Twelve Days of Christmas - Easy Brie and Onion Chutney Parcels


The supermarkets have been full of Christmas party food for a while now, and they have some amazing things! We usually pick up a few packs of them to have in the freezer for when we have those last minute guests. Or for those nights we don't want a proper meal and little picky things are much more appealing.

There are still certain things I like to make myself though, like sausage rolls. These apple and cranberry ones from last years Twelve Days, are my absolute favourite, and homemade sausage rolls always taste better than any you can buy. These little brie and chutney parcels are another, they are so tasty, and the combination of fillings with the buttery filo is so good. They may take a little bit of time because they are small, and can be fiddly at the beginning, but I get around 50 from a 220g pack of filo, so much cheaper than buying ready made. Perfect for any Christmas parties you're planning, or just to have in the freezer for when you feel like a little treat. The can also be cooked from frozen, just add another 2 - 3 minutes to the cooking time. Oh, and if freezing, it's best to do it before you've cooked them.


Box of ready made filo pastry
Jar of your favourite onion chutney
Wedge of brie - around 200g cut into 1cm cubes
75g -100g of melted butter (or oil if you prefer)


- Run a clean tea towel under cold water and ring it out so that it's still slightly damp. Lay your filo out flat, and keep the tea towel on top of it while your making parcels. This stops the filo drying out.

- Preheat your oven to 190°C

- Take 3 sheets of the filo at a time and cut into 9cm squares. Take one of the little squares, lay it flat on a chopping board and brush with the melted butter. Repeat this with two more squares, laying they at a different angle each time.

- To the middle of the sheets, add half a teaspoon of chutney and 3 cubes of brie. Start to lift up the pastry, bringing the edges together, pinching in the middle so it seals. Continue until all your little parcels are finished.

- If you'd prefer cups to parcels, brush 3 squares of filo with butter like before, but this time, place them into a mini cupcake tin and add the filling.

- Place your mini parcels or cups, onto a baking tray, and pop in the oven for 10 minutes.


Oh, and it's best to leave them to cool slightly, so that molten cheese doesn't burn your mouth!
