Ingredients1 squash (butternut, acorn, pumpkin, whatever)
pad of butter
curry powder / salt / pepper / spices you like
Filo pastry
Egg wash - 1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon of milk
(optional) any small diced veggies such as peas, corn, diced carrot, diced pepper, whatever.
DirectionsIn advance roast the squash. Slice in half, remove seeds, put in a pan with a centimeter deep of water, and roast in an 350 degree F oven for about 25 minutes or whenever it is soft and squishy. When done, scoop out the soft fleshy bits and put aside.

Dice up and caramelize the onion in some butter in a medium sized sauce pan. Add in your spices - curry mixes are nice. Add in your assorted chopped veggies, and then add in your roasted squash. Stir and cook on medium heat until the mixture isn't wet. We don't want it to be soggy.

Take two of the thin sheets of filo pastry and slice into long rectangles. Place a large spoonful of the squash mixture at one end, and fold over the corner so you make a triangle, then continue to fold it over so that the filo wraps and you end up with a triangle shape with all edges sealed. For each triangle, place on a baking sheet or pan, and using a pastry brush, wash it with the egg wash mixture.

Bake in a 350% oven, probably for about 20 minutes, until golden brown.
NotesWhile this recipe calls for squash, you could really add anything you like and flavour accordingly. Ground beef and cheese would be good, veggie mixes with egg, whatever.
