Mushroom Puff Pastry Appetizers, a fast and easy finger food that will be gone in minutes. The perfect Bite Size Appetizer for family dinners or get togethers.
The other day I decided to make one of our favourite lasagna, White Sauce Lasagna, if you haven’t tried it, believe me you must give it a taste.
It’s rich and delicious and filled with the best of everything. From Italian Sausages, to Peas and Mushrooms to a fast and easy Homemade White Sauce.
And that is how I came up with these Simple Appetizers. I had some leftover White Sauce, you don’t need much about half a cup maybe less. You could add a little extra extra milk, flour and butter when making the white sauce just to make sure you have some left over.
Or you could always make a smaller amount just to try these! A cup of milk, one tablespoon of flour and butter with a pinch of salt would probably work.
I had a roll of Puff Pastry in the fridge, so I rolled it out and using my two and a half-inch round cookie cutter I cut out about 10 rounds.
I topped each round with a teaspoon or two of White Sauce a few mushroom slices, which I was already using in the Lasagna so I sliced up a few extra and sautéed them in a little olive oil with some spices.

And of course topped with a generous sprinkle of Fresh Parmesan Cheese, or your preferred cheese. They baked up in about 20 minutes and I can tell you they were gone in less!
I think these Mushroom Puff Pastry Appetizers would make a great addition to any dinner or get together where you want to serve an Antipasto, something everyone will enjoy!
These will definitely be on my Holiday Table this year. Buon Appetito!
