24 Jul Beefy Swiss Bundles Recipe
1 pound ground beef
1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped onion
1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
2/3 cup refrigerated mashed potatoes
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
2 tablespoons water
How to make it
In a large skillet, cook the beef, mushrooms and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Stir in Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Remove from the heat; set aside.
On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry into a 15×13-in. rectangle. Cut into four 7-1/2×6-1/2-in. rectangles. Place about 2 tablespoons potatoes over each rectangle; spread to within 1 in. of edges. Top each with 3/4 cup beef mixture; sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese.
Beat egg and water; brush some over pastry edges. Bring opposite corners of pastry over each bundle; pinch seams to seal. Transfer to a greased baking sheet; brush with remaining egg mixture. Bake at 400° for 17-20 minutes or until golden brown. Freeze option: Freeze unbaked pastries on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet until firm. Transfer to a resealable plastic freezer bag; return to freezer. To use, bake pastries on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a preheated 400° oven 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and heated through.
