Pork and Mushroom Puff Pastry Rolls. I love entertaining and having people over. You could say I am a very social person and in this day and age of technology and texting I really miss that one on one or two on three conversations. Well, this appetizer or snack will definitely spark some food talk. Wonderful butter puff pastry meets succulent beautifully browned pork and mushrooms. It is a meal in one bite, one that will have your taste buds singing!

Creativity is the spice of my life!

I love when we are asked to develop recipes with certain ingredients, add in some budgeting and ease and we have the perfect inspiration for my creative mind to sink into.

Today’s creation built on appetizers and so I came up with  Pork and Mushroom Puff Pastry Rolls!

Main ingredient, Mushrooms.

I absolutely love mushrooms, so coming up with a tasty recipe that features this amazing fungus was right up my alley.

I have used puff pastry quite a bit and when thinking about this recipe and trying to stretch ingredients to feed many, I thought of a cinnamon roll except it wasn’t a cinnamon roll it was a savory roll.

Browned ground pork, nice button top mushrooms, some sweet soft caramelized onions. My mouth is watering just thinking about it again!

There is nothing like the union of mushrooms with a great quality protein like this pork!

I have said this many times, however I am going to say it again. Organization and doing the prep work makes cooking so much easier!

The tasks at hand:

  • Firstly, wash, dry, and chop mushrooms.
  • Secondly, cut up onions, mince garlic, shred herbs, arrange seasonings.

  • Thirdly, start to saute onions in a cast pan.
  • Fourthly, saute ground pork with mushrooms, spices and seasoning.

Let’s assemble:

  • Lastly, roll out puff pastry that has been brought to room temperature, fill with mushroom and onion mixure, roll, cut and place in muffin tin to bake.

Some helpful hints:

To start off with, even though the puff pastry is buttery, I always butter the muffin tin. This will allow me to take the rounds out easier, and I have to say, it works.

Try to work quickly so the puff pastry does not get all gooey on you. I take the puff pastry out of the fridge just when I am sauteing the pork, mushrooms, and onions.

A good sharp knife will be needed to cut the section of rolls. I gently hold the roll while cutting the rolls out.

Cheese please!

After putting the rolls in the tin I thought a good shredded Gouda would be good on these with some slivers of fresh sage, so I always follow my intuition and I have to tell you I am glad I did. Look at that crispy gooey melted Gouda. Does that not scream EAT ME?

We eat with our eyes and nose first……….

I have to say, the aroma of the butter, those caramelized onions and garlic, the herbs, is heavenly. Visually so inviting with those buttery golden light flaky folds holding in all that savory splendor, as a result I have to have one I cannot resist anymore!

Taste test………

Okay, OMG, that puff pastry is absolutely amazing! Light, buttery, flacky and oh so melt-in-your-mouth good. I love how the filling of the golden ground pork along with the mushrooms and onions are so enveloped in the crust of these Pork and Mushroom Puff Pastry Rolls. The pork is so flavorful, love the hits of the fresh cracked black pepper, and the oregano, rosemary, and sage are wonderful additions to the mix. The mushrooms are really the star of the show, so meaty, plump, and juicy with that unmistakable note! A perfect partner to many in this recipe!

Now let’s talk cheese. This melted crispy Gouda was just perfect to top this wonderful bundle of pure food joy! Crispy, buttery, and gooey at the same time, a perfect support to an already amazing cast of flavors and textures!

Final notes:

I really love entertaining and love the idea of appetizers giving guests options and diversity. Spring is in the air and I think a party is needed to shake the cobwebs of winter off our bodies. Let’s get back to the basics of conversation and physically enjoy sound and deliverance with our guests.

Spring has sprung and I am so so happy, the sun warmth and heat are my best friends, so glad we are reunited!

Call up friends and family, have a fun shopping excursion and come home to heat up that oven and create these Pork and Mushroom Puff Pastry Rolls!

Enjoy!

    I know what you mean about missing the conversations! We seem to have replaced real social interaction with this pseudo virtual interaction and try to convince ourselves it’s the same thing. Anyway, this is an amazing looking and sounding appetizer. I am mushroom crazy so I just love the whole idea of it! Mmmm…

      Thank you Terri, also such beautiful and wise words. I agree we were created with senses why omit any of them, I think it takes away from the human experience, however that is only my opinion. I am one to agree to disagree to keep the peace. So if technology is working for you and it brings you balance, I can’t argue with that. For me I need the full human experience! Thanks again Terri sure hope you get to try these they are mind blowing good!
      Happy cooking!
