Be the star of the party with these simple but elegant Mini Beef Wellingtons. I have been making these elegant little appetizers for years and they are always a hit. These look very fancy, but are incredibly simple to make. Your guest will ask you where you purchased them.
My Mini Beef Wellingtons are the perfect make ahead appetizers because they freeze great. I usually double or triple the recipe. When ready to fix, just grab them from the freezer, brush them with the egg wash and bake. Perfect for the impromptu get together or when you get invited to a party at the last-minute. I serve my Mini Beef Wellingtons with a simple dipping sauce using Boursin® cheese, cream cheese and Worcestershire sauce. Because of how quick these cook, you will need to use a high quality of beef such as a fillet or rib-eye.
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for visiting, supporting and helping Dad Whats 4 Dinner grow. Can’t wait for all the opportunities 2016 will bring. –Best Quinn!!!!
