Ideas for puff pastry appetizers?
I'm thinking of making mini savory tarts out of some puff pastry and serving them at a bbq this weekend. While I love showing off, I'll need them to be kind of unfussy. I'd like something where I can prepare the filling ahead of time and then assemble and bake at the location of the bbq. I'm open to the filling being baked with the pastry or a cold/room temp filling added after baking.
So far my ideas are;
caramelized onion and anchovy or blue cheese
ham and cheese
roasted red pepper and goat cheese
Any other great ideas?
One of my go-to finger foods is a mini brie en croute. I cut puff pastry in to squares, about 1 1/2 in (I eyeball it with a pizza cutter) and stick them in a mini muffin tin, spoon in a bit of jam and add a piece of brie. Bake at 375 for about 12 minutes or until the pastry is just turning golden. I have baked halfway (just until the pastry sets, about 7 or 8 minutes) popped them out into foil hotel pans and transported to the location and baked on sheet trays until heated through. I usually have some half baked in the freezer to bring on short notice.
