  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir mushrooms until browned and tender yet crisp, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Roll puff pastry out on a lightly-floured work surface. Cut out 5-inch circles using a round cutter and place on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned and puffed, about 12 minutes. Transfer puffs to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Beat goat cheese and egg together in a bowl until smooth. Season with thyme. Spread goat cheese mixture over cooled pastry puffs; top each with caramelized onions and mushrooms. Place pastries back onto baking sheet.

  • Bake in the oven until warmed through, about 5 minutes.

These are so yummmmmy:) Everyone loved them. I'm not sure if the timing was mistyped but it only took 15 minutes to sauté and caramelize the onions and mushrooms to a lovely brown. Another way to shave some time off was to have the pastry puffs come out of the oven as the sautéing started so they were cooled when it was time to put it all together. I absolutely love cooking with butter and the flavour goes great with onions and mushrooms but it was a bit too much for me. I would cut it with a splash of white wine or just reduce the amount of butter going in. The goat cheese mixture was creamy and deeelish! Mmmm. I also didn't have a 5" cutter so mine were smaller and disappeared in two bites! All told the timing including prep right to taking the first bite was about 40 minutes. Read More
