Easy Smoked Turkey, Cheese and Mushroom Puff Pastry

When I hear the words puff pastry, I think of a Napoleon, a sweet dish, but this pastry puff is a savory dish and it is oh so easy. It is a perfect appetizer to make when you really want to impress your guests. The great thing is that you can use your imagination and add any ingredients you like. Today, I am using Smoked Turkey, Brie, Provolone, Mushrooms and Dijon Mustard. This is a wonderful recipe that I found  from," From Isabelle at Home".


Defrost the puffed pastry and then roll it out on a floured board. After rolling it out, place on parchment paper or a Silpat. Spread 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard, then  place a layer of turkey, a layer of cheese and then top it off with mushrooms. Roll out the second sheet of  pastry dough.


Brush the beaten egg on the edges of the pastry dough.


Lay the second layer of pastry dough on top. Brush with the egg mixture. Cut the pastry to fit 10"x 12". Cut slits to allow steam to escape. In honor of it being the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I have made the ribbon symbol representing this with extra dough.


Voila!! After baking at 450 for 15- 20 minutes.


Let cool for about 5 minutes.


Resist cutting a huge piece while everyone is waiting like I did!


Transfer to a cutting board.


Make any design, ribbon,  stars, clouds...


Notice the Turkey, Cheese and Mushrooms melding together and the puff pastry is a perfect golden brown. Your eyes will roll up and your mouth will say, MMMMM.




Transfer to a serving platter.




Simple and delicious. Bon Appetite!
