Mini Beef Wellingtons make an impressive presentation and will be a huge hit with party guests. We love the fresh rosemary and flaky puff pastry of these little bites.
Makes 8 to 10 servings


+ Add To Shopping List
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
4 to 5 crimini mushrooms or button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Sea salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry dough, thawed
1 (1-pound) trimmed beef tenderloin, cut into 24 cubes (about 3/4 inch each)
1/3 cup Boursin cheese


Prep: 25 Minutes
Cook: 14 Minutes
Stand: 5 Minutes

1. Preheat oven to 450°. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and rosemary; sauté 3 minutes or until browned. Stir in pepper and 1/8 teaspoon sea salt. Set aside.

2. Whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl.

3. Roll 1 puff pastry sheet into a 9- x 12-inch rectangle on a lightly floured work surface. Cut into 12 (3-inch) squares. Arrange 1 beef cube in the center of each pastry square, and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt. Top each beef cube with about 1/2 teaspoon Boursin cheese and 1 mushroom slice. Brush edges of pastry squares with egg mixture. Fold dough corners over filling in the center to make a packet, pinching to seal. Place on a large, parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients, and brush all with remaining egg mixture.

4. Bake 9 minutes or until pastry is puffed and golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes.
