Truffle Mushroom & Filet Bites
These are the ultimate appetizer, full of flavor and satisfying. These will be a crowd pleaser at any gathering!
- 2 Filet Mignons
- 1 Sheet Puff Pastry
- 2 Tbsp Butter
- 4 Oz Shitake Mushrooms chopped
- 16 Oz Baby Bella Mushrooms chopped
- 1/2 Shallot minced
- 2 Cloves Garlic minced
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 1/2 Tsp Pepper
- 1 Tsp Truffle Oil
- 1 Tsp Dijon
- 1 Egg beatened
Start by seasoning the filets liberally with salt and pepper. Cook the filets over medium high heat in a cast iron or on a grill for about 3 minutes per side (this is for medium rare). Take the filets off the heat, let them rest, then slice thinly and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350°
Cut the puff pastry sheet into 24 squares. Place the squares on two parchment lined baking trays. Brush on the beaten egg to each square. Place in the oven for 10-12 min or until golden brown then set aside.
In a medium sized frying pan over medium heat add the butter shallots and garlic. After sauteeing for a minute add the mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are tender and reduced in size add the salt, pepper, dijon and truffle oil. Mix until combined, shut off the heat and set aside.
Add a spoonful of the mushroom mix to each of the puff pastry squares, then top with a slice of filet. I like to garnish with sea salt and chives. Enjoy!
