Mini Beef Wellingtons

So last weekend my department at work gathered for a little holiday party at a co-worker's house. It was nice to get together outside of the "work" setting and just enjoy each others company.

And eat tons and tons of great food.

Just look at some of the samplings!
































I supplied the chocolate fondue (yell, if you'd like that easy recipe!) and my spinach artichoke dip with warm crusty bread. Yum.

The host outdid herself with a ooey, gooey, wonderful pan of lasagna and a new creation her fiance found - Mini Beef Wellingtons. She graciously gave me the recipe, so dig in! It's a great holiday appetizer for your next gathering.

Mini Beef Wellingtons
beef tenderloin
1 red pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced
2 c. mushrooms, diced
1 T. garlic
1 pkg. puff pastry, thawed
egg wash


Cut up the beef tenderloin into bite size pieces, saute in skillet with oil until medium (or to your preferred liking). Remove beef from pan. Saute peppers, onion, garlic and mushrooms until tender. Add beef back into pan to mix, but turn off the heat.

Roll out puff pastry and cut into small squares. Drop one piece of beef, along with veggie mixture onto pastry and place another pastry square on top, then seal edges. Place on baking sheet and brush with egg wash mixture.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

These were delicious. We ate them plain, but I'm also imagining a creamy horseradish dip or something of that sort to dunk them in.

What has been your favorite dish so far this year at any holiday gatherings?

  2. I'm making individual beef wellingtons for my family for Christmas. I just saw the recipe in cooking class last week and it's similar to yours. Yum!

  5. I love anything mini and appetizer-ish. I loved the mushroom and bacon dip that I made at my party on the weekend.
