Servings: 4 to 8 servings
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 17 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

8 ounces ground beef
2 teaspoons ketchup
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
All-purpose flour for dusting
1 sheet (from a 17.5-ounce package) puff pastry
2 ounces (about 1/2 cup) Cheddar, shredded
1 large egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water





Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the beef, ketchup, mustard, salt, and pepper. Form the mixture into 8 equal-size patties. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, brown the patties for 1 to 2 minutes.

On a lightly floured surface, unfold the pastry and roll out. Cut the pastry lengthwise into 4 equal strips, then cut strips in 1/2 crosswise. Place 1 patty on each strip and top with cheese. Fold the pastry up around the burgers and pinch the edges together to seal, molding to fit around the patties. Brush the tops of the pastries with the egg mixture.

Place the mini burgers on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 to15 minutes or until puffed and golden. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Paula,I am amazed...I Love You

By bobbi jordan on October 18, 2013


Hi Paula, I love watching your Tv shows and watching you cook. You have so many amazing recipes. I just took over a restaurant in our little town of Orwell. I worked for the old owner for 12yrs. and bought the business, it was a very big step for me but like you I have my 23 yr old son working with me. I've always wanted to go to cooking school but my family didnt have a lot of money, I love to cook and bake and hope someday I can be a great cook like you. Love you Paula.

Made these last week and they didn't last! I'm making them for the Super Bowl and will add a little garlic powder and some onion. I had soggy dough, but who cares...they still loved them!

They were delicious! I really liked how your could still taste the ketchup and mustard in them. The only minor problem I had with these burgers is that the grease made the dough soggy on the bottom. Any ideas as how prevent the bottom of the burgers from getting soggy?
