Mushroom and Onion Puffs

Admittedly there are few things that would not taste delicious wrapped in puff pastry.  I think that this combination of mushrooms and onions is high on the delicious list though!

I sauteed the mushroom and onions with a bit of dried thyme.  I just love thyme with mushrooms, so classic!  I had a couple ounces of cheddar cheese in the refrigerator so I diced that up to roll into the dough as well.

I just love how simple this appetizer is.  It is just a boost to your appetizer array of chopped veggies to have a couple amazing bites.

Mushroom & Onion Puffs

1 sheet of puff pastry
2 TBS of olive oil
8oz of cremini mushrooms, brushed clean and chopped
1 onion, sliced
1/4 tsp of salt and pepper
1/4 tsp of dried thyme leaves
2 oz of cheddar cheese, diced
flour for dusting
egg white, beaten

In a large saute pan, heat 2 TBS of olive oil over medium heat.  Saute the onions with the salt and pepper.  Once soft, add in the mushrooms and thyme leaves.  Stirring occasionally while cooking for about 10 minutes.  

Rolled the sheet of puff pastry out on a floured surface until about 11" square.  Slice in half.  In a vertical row, place half of the cheese in a vertical row in the center of each piece, then do the same with the mushroom mixture.  Fold the puff pastry over the filling from each side.  At this point you should have two long rolls.  Slice each roll into 12 pieces.  Place on a nonstick sheet pain.  Brush the top of each roll with the egg wash.  Bake for 15 minutes at 400degrees or until golden brown. Serve warm.  Enjoy!
