Beef Puff Pastry Pockets Appetizer

I posted a recipe similar to this one a few months ago. This is the easy version and the smaller, appetizer/snack size version of that same recipe. This is great as a main meal or an appetizer. This is a perfect recipe especially with the Holidays coming up in a few weeks. I will definitely be making some for Holiday parties and get together’s. These delicious little beef puff pastry pockets taste just like the frozen puff pastry Hors d’oeuvre appetizers that you would buy at grocery stores like Costco, BJ’s, or Sam’s Club that have a variety of different fillings inside, but of course these home made ones taste so much more superior and fresh and you can stuff them with any filling of your choice. I also like these with a mashed potato and mushroom filling, or a spinach and feta cheese filling, so you can get creative with these and make any filling of your choice.

Directions:

1) Cut the puff pastry sheets into 6 squares each sheet. Grate the onion on the grater. Mix the ground beef with spices and grated onion in a big bowl and set aside.

2) Put a heaping spoonful of meat mixture onto each puff pastry square. Fold each puff pastry square up and tightly press to seal the sides. Using a fork, press down on the sides of each puff pastry pocket to make sure it is well sealed and looks neat.

3) Bake at 350 Degrees for about 1 hour, until puff pastry pockets are golden and done.
