Spicy Meat Puff Pastry Recipe

Phyllo (or filo) pastry dough is one of the things that should be kept in your freezer at all times. You can make delicious appetizers and desserts with it. I used to make scrambled egg, cheese and bacon breakfast pastry long before I knew how to cook. I had no name for this, now they sell the same thing with a cute name and ready to pop in the microwave.

Phyllo dough looks intimidating because it is so thin and fragile but that's same reason it is so easy to use. It patches perfectly and bakes up even better. It is almost impossible to make a mistake with this dough. The key is to keep it moist, do not allow it to dry out. Keep a damp cotton towel over the dough you are working with.

For easy meat puff pastries, use spicy ground beef, lamb, pork or a combination to make hot sandwiches that children will love. Think of Sloppy Joe's in flaky pastry dough, Jamaican patties. You can also use hot or mild chorizos*, Italian sausage, sweet or hot. You can also use ground beef, pork or lamb

Puff Pastry


1 package frozen Phyllo dough

*Chorizo is a highly spiced Spanish sausage. You should be able to get them from your local supermarket.
*Keep waiting Phyllo dough covered with a damp towel at all times. It dries out very quickly.
