Cheese Special: Havarti - Danish Chicken Strudel

There can be no cheese special without Havarti, once known as Danish Tilsit, which is a creamy cheese full of aromatic flavour.  Roll it in pastry and chicken - and you have a divine meal of golden goodness!

Havarti - Danish Chicken Strudel


  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 8 mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 185g Havarti cheese, shredded
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 6 sheets filo pastry
  • Melted Butter
  • Sesame Seeds

In a bowl combine chicken, mushrooms, spring onions, half the cheese, pinch of salt and pepper and blend until mixed.

Layer the sheets of pastry, brushing each with melted butter,  Spread chicken filling over the pastry to within 2.5cm of the edges.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Roll up as for a swiss roll, seal edge with melted butter and trim the ends.  Brush with melted butter and place sealed side down in a buttered baking dish.

Make two or three slits on the top of the strudel, sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake in a moderate to hot oven  (about 180 degrees celcius) for 25-30mins or until golden brown.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
