Mini Beef Wellingtons Recipe
I discovered this lovely starter at a wedding I attended. After sampling one, I decided I had to try duplicating the recipe at home. I think my version is a bit easier and faster to prepare, but just as elegant in appearance and just as crowd-pleasing.—Annie De La Hoz, Delta, Colorado
