Can you believe that the holidays are almost completely over?!? I can’t! It came and went so quickly. Now from what I am seeing on Facebook, most people are really looking forward to saying goodbye to 2016 and eager for the fresh start in 2017. We had a great year and are looking to continue it next year! This will be the first year in a long time that we will be celebrating it with friends so we want to do it right with gourmet appetizers and delicious cocktails. These Easy Lamb and Mushroom Puff Pastry Triangles will definitely be making another appearance at the New Year’s Eve celebration.
Puff pastry is like a super ingredient. No matter what your pair it with, the buttery flakiness of the pastry dough turns something ordinary into something spectacular. And with it being New Year’s Eve and all, we wanted something spectacular! These kind of taste like a mini lamb wellington!
I did a post a couple weeks ago, Herb Crusted Leg of Lamb, and had some extra roasts from recipe testing so naturally I had to put them to good use. For this recipe, I simply cut up one of the roasts into tiny cubes, fried it with herbs, mushrooms, onions, and garlic, and wrapped it into puff pastry. I then baked them into golden perfection and served them with a rosemary garlic dipping sauce.
So whether you are saying goodbye to a bad year or celebrating a good year, these little appetizer will be perfect for ringing in the new year!
