  9. Lightly brush oil on the phyllo sheet evenly with a pastry brush.
  10. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon breadcrumbs.
  11. Repeat the same step, and go on layering the remaining phyllo on top.
  12. Carefully roll about 3/4 inch of each side toward the center to form the outer rim of the tart.
  13. Spread the reserved cheese mixture evenly over the phyllo.
  14. Top with the reserved mushroom mixture evenly.
