2 green onions, finely chopped

pound bacon, diced and rendered until crispy

2 cups chopped walnuts, divided

4 sheets phyllo dough

3-4 tablespoons butter

Add Twizzler port sauce to a medium pot; add scallion and celery, cover and cook 12 minutes or until celery is soft. Stir in bacon and chopped walnuts; cover and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Allow mixture to cool.

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Butter a small pan (7-by-11-inches) and place two half sheets of phyllo dough in pan, buttering each sheet. Place 4 to 5 tablespoons of the mixture on the buttered phyllo, and continue to add alternate layers of phyllo and mixture until the pan is full. End top layer with phyllo; brush with butter and sprinkle with nuts. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool 20 minutes. Cut into bit sized pieces.

Makes eight to 10 pieces.
