An easy to make cheesy meal

INGREDIENTS 
1 egg, lightly beaten 
1 bunch fresh parsley, minced 
2 cloves garlic, minced 
¾ tsp dried red chilli flakes 
170g Gouda cheese, grated 
170g Emmental cheese, finely grated 
12 sheets filo pastry 
350g unsalted butter, melted 

METHOD
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, parsley, garlic and red chilli flakes. Mix in the Gouda and Emmental. One sheet at a time, place the filo pastry on a flat surface and brush with about 1 tbsp butter. Cut lengthways into 4 strips. Place a rounded tsp of the egg mixture at one end of each strip. Fold acorner of strip over the filling, forming a triangular fold. Continue folding the length of the strip in triangular folds to form a small stuffed triangle. Repeat with remaining filo. Preheat the oven to 180C. Lightly butter a large baking tray, or line with parchment. Arrange the stuffed filo triangles in a single layer on the prepared baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
