These Mini Beef Wellingtons take the tradition french meal and make them a fun bite sized snack. Perfect for all of your part needs.
Sure dinner parties are fun, but the snack monster in me loves cocktail parties. I love getting together with friends and sharing some small plates and tapas. There is something so satisfying about eating with your fingers and getting to try so many different snacks. In my house we are big beef eaters so these mini Beef Wellingtons are the perfect party snack for us.
Puff pastry is the perfect canvas for tapas, did you know they even make gluten free puff pastry? I recently bought some from a health store near my house, but you can also order it on the Gluten Free Mall’s website. When I heard Florida Beef was hosting #SundaySupper this week I knew I had to break out the Wellies! Beef is such a versatile ingredient; not only does it add protein to these babies, but, it adds such a richness in the flavor. Who saying steak’s only for grilling! I think it makes the perfect small bite!
I hated mushrooms for the longest time, but now I can’t get enough of them and they’re such a filling, low calorie food. The beef adds high amounts of zinc, iron, and vitamins B6 and B12, along with other key vitamins and minerals, that I almost don’t feel guilty about the fatty foie gras in these Wellies. Don’t be intimidated, the foie gras can be left out, but if you enjoy delicious things you don’t want to skip it. This recipe uses filet, which is such a lean cut of meat, only 10 grams of fat per 3 ounces, that pairing it with foie gras is no worse for you than basting a steak in butter!
Rich beef, earthy mushrooms, fatty foie gras, flaky pastry; is your mouth watering yet? I love to smear some dijon mustard on a plate, top it with the beef wellingtons and some green onions. Just use your fingers and dip away! For even more amazing Florida Beef recipes be sure to follow them on social media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Youtube!
