Cheddar & Beef Puff Pastry Tarts

Ingredients List:

Puff Pastry (each 10 inch/ 25 cm square)
Ground Beef or Shredded Chicken
2-3 Onions
2-3 Garlic
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
3-4 Fresh Chillies
1 Egg


Preheat the oven to 425˚F (220˚C). Heat oil in a skillet set over medium heat; cook beef for 8 to 10 minutes or until cooked through. Add sliced 2-3 onions, 2-3 cloves of garlic, salt, coriander powder and black pepper to taste. Cook for 5 – 10 minutes. Set aside and let cool completely.

Cut each pastry sheet into 4 equal squares. Add the cooked meat and top it with some chillies. Add 1/4 cup (60 mL) shredded cheese and 1 tbsp shaved cheese to the centre of each pastry square. Fold up corners of each pastry square to meet in the centre; pinch to seal together.

Whisk egg with 1 tbsp (15 mL) water; brush over pastry. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Transfer to rack; let cool slightly.

The options are endless by adding sausages or chicken as well as you can use the leftover to make it into a new meal within the minutes.

It makes a perfect iftar or suhoor as well as any time of the day for brunch. You can make them for your kid’s lunches as well.
