How to Bake Greek Mushroom Phyllo Triangles:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Brush the baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.
Pour olive oil into a deep skillet and set the heat to medium. Let the oil warm for about a minute and then add the onion. Saute for about five minutes, or until soft.
Stir in the mushrooms and saute with the onions for about 2-3 minutes, or until the mushrooms become soft.
Transfer the mushroom mixture to a bowl. Stir in the cheese, salt, pepper, and bread crumbs.
Cut pastry sheets in strips about 2×12 inches. Stack them one on top of the other to prevent from drying. Brush each strip with melted butter, put 1 teaspoon of the filling on one end of a strip and fold over one corner to make a triangle.
Continue folding pastry strip from side to side in the shape of a triangle until the entire pastry strip covers the filling. Proceed in this manner with pastry strips and filling until all are used.
Place each triangle on the baking sheet and put the sheet in the center of the oven. Bake until light golden brown in color. This should take about 15 minutes.
