grate potatoes and put in a collander and squeeze out extra moisture. Mix with diced onion salt, pepper and oil.
Working fast before the potatoes discolor, Place on sheet phyllo dough with short side to you (Covering rest with damp towel)Brush with melted butter and put a large hand full of potato mixture in center leaving a 1 inch margin around sidea and ends.

Why add the phyllo dough? looks to me like you just made yourself a lot more work. :0)

Well, by definition, a burek is a pastry(usually phyllo) filled with meat, veggies, potato, and/or the like. Sounds yummy, Stormy, and congrats on the 1000th recipe!
