Mushroom filled pastry

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

There was this dish I had at the Biltmore in Miami a while back I am trying to find the name for.  It was made with an assortment of mushrooms sauteed in a sort of creamy sauce.  Then they took something like a biscuit or a pastry and cut a hole out of the middle of it and filled it with the mushrooms and the sauce.  The name was something with a V, or 2.  It was a french name if I remember correctly.  Does anybody know what this is called.

Vol Au Vent is correct and most of them buy them frozen already to bake. They bake at 400 and come out crispy.  Can also be filled with pastry cream  then strawberries or choco sauce and whipped cream. Easy , look nice and yum yum.

You can buy frozen puff pastry and stamp out your own as well or just whoop up a batch of fresh puff pastry. If you have any extra PP you can add a mille-feuille to the dessert repertoire another evening.

You see Vo-au- vent  most often filled with sauced fowl or fish.

Actually any type of stew could be used to make something simple look a bit more fancy

... or seafood AND quenelles!

 

In individual portions they're often called "Bouchées à la Reine".

And if you do Seafood or Quenelles and top it with a Hollandaise you are getting a real elegant meal

Sounds tasty. The ones I had were made with a bechamel sauce. I haven't had any in years, but just talking about it makes me salivate. licklips.gif

P-farms also makes a puff pastry thing that you don't have to cut from a whole sheet.
