How to Cook Cheese and Ham Phyllo Rolls Casserole

  1. For the rolls:

    Add the Gruyere cheese, ham, thyme, and feta to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix. Set aside.

  2. Coat 2 phyllo sheets with olive oil and place them one on top of the other. Spread 1/2 of the cheese and ham mixture on top, then repeat with 2 more phyllo sheets and the remaining mixture. Roll them, then cut the roll into thicker slices.
  3. For the egg and milk mixture:

    Add the eggs, milk, and nutmeg to a bowl and whisk them.

  4. For the casserole:

    Sprinkle a 10-inch diameter baking dish with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and line it with a phyllo sheet. Flip the margins of the sheet inside the baking dish and sprinkle 1 more tablespoon of oil. Do the same with the remaining phyllo sheets and vegetable oil.

  5. Place the rolls inside the baking dish pressing them gently over the bottom phyllo sheets. Pour the custard on top and bake for 60 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
  6. Serve garnished with fresh thyme.
