A Greek Appetizer that can be frozen. I made these for a Greek themed dinner party. I think I liked them better reheated from frozen. The original recipe came from The Complete Book of Greek Cooking at the local library, but I tweaked it a little.

Sorry! Although I liked the ground beef/raison combo, I thought these dry and bland. It If I am going to take the time to work with phyllo dough, I'm looking for something a bit tastier.

We liked these. Because of the other review I toasted the pine nuts to add a little flavor. We tasted the meat mixture before making the rolls, then added a little salt and pepper to bring out the flavors. Next time I will soak the raisins in the wine and probably will use port instead of the cabernet I used this time.
