Mushroom PalmiersPosted: January 26, 2013
I made these mushroom palmiers to take to Christmas dinner at our friends’ house. They were a delicious and easy appetizer. The flaky pastry and the savory mushroom filling makes for a nice combination. I like that they can be served at room temperature.
3 tablespoons butter
1 package (8 ounces) fresh mushrooms
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (I like Texas Pete)
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 package frozen puff pastry, thawed (recommended Pepperidge Farm)
In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onion; cook and stir until tender. Stir in lemon juice, hot pepper sauce and salt. Cool completely.
Unfold one pastry sheet. Spread the mushroom mixture to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up the left and right sides toward the center, jelly-roll style, until rolls meet in the middle. Cut into 24 equal slices.
Place slices on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
