Chef Chuck's Puff Pastry with Mushrooms and Asiago

Sfoglia al Funghi e Asiago


A flaky buttery puff pastry baked to golden brown, filled with baby bella mushrooms and creamy Asiago cheese. Any soft cheese would work with this recipe but I love the combination of Asiago and mushrooms. The added touch of thyme gives this dish an earthy taste. A wonderful side dish or a great appetizer.


Puff Pastry with Mushrooms and Asiago


1 box puff pastry
olive oil
1 onion, diced
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
5 ounces Asiago cheese, sliced
salt and pepper
2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
1 egg white


Thaw pastry and place on a baking sheet. Saute onions and mushrooms in olive oil, season with salt and pepper add thyme. Place sliced cheese on pastry, add onion mixture and top with pastry. Seal edges with fingers or by using the end of a fork. Brush with egg whites and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
