Shrimp Napoleons

Flaky and tender frozen puff pastry serves as the bread for these cold shrimp sandwiches. Bake the pastry and prepare the filling a day ahead, and assemble before guests arrive. —Mary Lou Wayman, Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    3 dozen


  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2-1/2 cups chopped cooked peeled shrimp
  • 1/3 cup finely shredded carrot
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Unfold one puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut sheet into nine squares, about 3 in. Cut each square in half, forming 18 rectangles.
  • Place on one prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining puff pastry. Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  • In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, onion, mustard and Worcestershire sauce until well blended. Stir in the shrimp, carrot and bacon.
  • To assemble, use a fork to split each pastry in half horizontally. Spread a rounded tablespoonful of cream cheese mixture over the bottom halves; replace tops. Refrigerate until serving.
