I cut it open to show you all the loveliness inside.

About 20 - 25 mixed Mushrooms (any that you like), cleaned and diced
About 1 stick Butter
1 Onion, chopped
4 cloves Garlic
2 t. Oregano
2 t. Thyme
2 t. Basil
12 oz. Feta, crumbled
Phyllo Dough

Melt 3 T. butter and saute spices, mushroom, onion, and garlic until mushrooms reduce and onions become transparent.  Remove from heat and mix in feta.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Take 1 phyllo sheet from stack and arrange on a work surface with a long side nearest you (keeping remaining sheets covered) and brush with some butter.  Top with another phyllo sheet and brush with more butter.  Cut buttered phyllo stack crosswise into 6 (roughly 12- by 2 3/4-inch) strips.

Put a heaping teaspoon of filling near 1 corner of a strip on end nearest you, then fold corner of phyllo over to enclose filling and form a triangle.  Continue folding strip (like a flag), maintaining triangle shape.  Put triangle, seam side down, on a large baking sheet and brush top with butter.  Make more triangles in same manner, using all of phyllo.

Bake triangles in middle of oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool slightly.
