  1. In a large skillet, cook the beef, mushrooms and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Stir in Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry into a 15x13-in. rectangle. Cut into four 7-1/2x6-1/2-in. rectangles. Place about 2 tablespoons potatoes over each rectangle; spread to within 1 in. of edges. Top each with 3/4 cup beef mixture; sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese.
  3. Beat egg and water; brush some over pastry edges. Bring opposite corners of pastry over each bundle; pinch seams to seal. Transfer to a greased baking sheet; brush with remaining egg mixture. Bake at 400° for 17-20 minutes or until golden brown.
    Freeze option: Freeze unbaked pastries on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet until firm. Transfer to a resealable plastic freezer bag; return to freezer. To use, bake pastries on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a preheated 400° oven 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and heated through.
    Yield: 4 servings.

"It was good but again took a little time to make. I could envision making a filling with chicken and mushrooms with spinach and just the right amount of cheese to make it a little healthier. Pastry was nice a soft yet cooked to a crisp. Husband loved it and he is hard to please. He even took the 4th piece to work for lunch."

"Husband & I loved it. Great flavor. Skipped the pastry bundle. Served with mozzarella on top, mashed potatoes and crescent roll on side. This sped cooking time significantly. Definitely will make again."

"Although it took a little with rolling out the pastry dough to the correct size, it was so worth the effort. I made sure to chop up the mushrooms, onions, and garlic very small. I didn't have any worcestershire sauce, so I used a little soy sauce instead. The mashed potatoes with the swiss cheese was fabulous. Will definitely be making this again!"

"This was kind of a pain the rump to make, and the whole time I was hoping they'd be worth it. I'm very glad to say HECK YA they were worth it. WOW! So tasty!

The kids didn't like the potatoes in there, so I'll likely leave those off next time, but all in all, this recipe was delicious and I look forward to making it again!"

"I really enjoyed this. Though I chopped the mushrooms up very small, and had trouble rolling out my puff pastry to the size required, it still turned out delicious! This has now been added to the "regulars" book!"
