Servings 4 people


  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion chopped
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 3 cups roughly chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 cup cremini mushrooms chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced or grated
  • 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Havarti cheese
  • 1 box frozen philo pastry thawed
  • 1 egg beaten


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the onion and cook 5 minutes, until softened. Add the broccoli, mushrooms, and season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking another 5-10 minutes or until the broccoli begins to char. Add the garlic, thyme, nutmeg, and cayenne, cook another minute. Remove from the heat.
  • Stir in the cream cheese, 1 cup cheddar, and Havarti cheese.
  • Lay the pastry sheets flat on a clean, floured surface. Gently roll the sheets out to stretch slightly. Cut each sheet into 9 squares. Evenly divide the broccoli filling among half of the squares, leaving a 1/4 inch border around the edges. Brush the edges with egg. Lay the remaining 9 squares over the filling and seal the edges by crimping with the back of a fork.
  • Place the squares on the prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with beaten egg. Make 2 small slits on the top of the pastries. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and the everything spice, if desired. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve warm, topped with additional thyme.


oMake Ahead: these can be fully assembled through step 4 and then either kept in the fridge until ready to bake or frozen (uncooked). To bake the pies from frozen, bake an additional 10-15 minutes.
