Yield: 12 squares
Lay one sheet of phyllo on a cutting surface and brush lightly with the melted butter. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon bread crumbs. Place another sheet of phyllo on top. With a sharp knife, cut into 12 equal-size squares. Divide the mushroom-bacon filling among the squares. Gather the corners of each square into a peak and twist gently.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Drop long strands of chives into boiling water for 5 seconds. Tie one strand around the neck of each phyllo "purse," tying the ends into a bow. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes, or until golden.
