  • Preparation time60 minutes
  • Cooking time15 minutes


  • 30 g Stork margarine
  • 1 Red Onion, finely diced
  • 500 g Butternut, peeled and cubed
  • 125 g Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 sachet KNORR Classic White Sauce
  • 1 Roll phyllo pastry
  • 1 Punnet fresh chives


  • Sauté the onion in the margarine until soft but with no colour, then set aside.
  • Steam the butternut in a little salted water in the microwave for about 10-12 minutes or until soft then drain and mash until just smooth but still slightly chunky.
  • In a bowl mix the sautéed onion, mashed butternut, crumbled feta and contents of the sachet of KNORR Classic White Sauce together.
  • Season to taste with salt and black pepper, then leave to cool.
  • Remove the sheets of phyllo pastry from the packaging and cut into 4, to give you rectangles.
  • Place one rectangle on a board, brush with melted butter then place another rectangle on top and brush with melted butter.
  • Place one tbspful of the mixture in the centre of the pastry and roll up to resemble a cigar then pinch the edges using your fingers so that it resembles a cracker.
  • Continue until you have enough crackers or until the filling is finished.
  • Place the crackers onto a greased baking tray, brush each cracker with a little more melted butter then place in the fridge to chill and firm up for about 30 minutes.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 190°C for about 15 minutes or until the pastry is crispy and golden brown.
  • Transfer the crackers to a cooling rack then secure the ends of the crackers with chives.
