Mushroom & Stilton Samosas

On 28th November 2014, This was Dinner

I’ve developed a love of Stilton, it’s my favourite at the moment. I made these samosas with inspiration from a November recipe on my Great British Bake Off calendar.


  • Preheat the oven to 190ºc (fan) and pop a baking tray in
  • Roughly chop some mushrooms
  • Finely chop some rosemary
  • Roughly chop some blue stilton
  • Get some filo to room temperature.
  • Get butter, seasoning, lemon, oil & rocket ready


Melt some butter and a little oil in a pan and add the mushrooms when it’s foaming.

Don’t agitate the mushrooms, let them cook for a while. Stir once and add the rosemary, once cooked, remove from the pan, season and leave to cool.

Cut the filo sheets down the middle so you have two strips, Brush a strip with oil then add another and brush again then do the same with one more piece.

Pop a spoonful of the mushrooms at the top of your pastry and add a few pieces of the stilton. Gently fold over into a triangle, folding over again. Brush your samosa with oil.

When you have done this until you have run out of either filo or mushroom mixture, pop them in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes until golden.

Serve on a bed of rocket with a squeeze of lemon.
