2 scallions, diced

1 rib celery, finely diced

12 ounces filet mignon, finely chopped

teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

2 strips bacon, finely chopped

Splash port wine

ounce bacon fat

2 phyllo sheets (9-by-14-inch)

2 tablespoons melted butter

In a bowl, add scallions, celery, tenderloin and bacon. Add salt, pepper and bacon fat. Place in a bowl, add splash of port wine. Stir mixture and let chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Place a sheet of phyllo on a dry flat surface; brush sheet with butter, add a second sheet and brush with butter. Place 2-3 tablespoons of the chilled mixture in the center of the dough. Fold in corners and twist dough in the center to finish. Lightly butter and bake 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; serve warm. Goes great with the Twizzler Port Dipping Sauce (recipe below).

Serves six.
