One day I was watching Paula Deen on Food Network and she made these delicious looking Puff Pastry Burgers. I thought to myself, hey I can do that!
This recipe is SO much fun because you can add anything inside the puff pastry to create the best burger ever! I have added in the past, cole slaw, avocado, bacon, tomato, french fries, etc. The possibilities are endless!
So how do you make them?
Puff Pastry Burgers
lemon and pepper seasoning
bacon, cooked for burgers
1 package of puff pastry sheets
1 egg white
1 tablespoon of water
Pat out your hamburgers to your desired size. Season with lemon and pepper and garlic salt. Cook your burgers your preferred way–grilled, baked, or fried.
While the burgers are cooking, lay out your puff pastry sheets so that they can thaw.
Cook your bacon and slice your tomatoes.
After the burgers get through cooking, top them with the cheese slices and set them aside.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Open your pastry sheets and slice them in to 4 squares. Take a square and massage it so it will spread a little.
Take your burger and place it in the middle of the puff pastry. Top it with the cooked bacon and tomatoes.
Fold the ends together to completely cover the burger and then press the seams together. You should have a closed pocket of meat inside that puff pastry. Continue until all the burgers have been covered. Lay them seam side down on a baking sheet.
Take the egg white and beat with the water. Brush the tops of the puff pastry burgers with the egg wash and then place them in the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve them with a side of ketchup and mustard!
