Lamb Puff Pastry Bite Appetizer Recipe

  • 1 tablespoon diced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 2 (10×15-inch) sheets of frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 cup tzatziki sauce
  1. Mix garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, and allspice together in a bowl; add lamb. Form lamb mixture into 10-inch logs the thickness of hot dogs.
  2. Whisk egg and water together in a small bowl to make egg wash.
  3. Lay puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured work surface; roll gently to smooth the creases. Slice pastry into 10×4-inch strips. Brush egg wash over pastry. Place 1 lamb log on each strip of pastry; wrap dough around lamb and pinch edges to seal. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Remove plastic wrap and slice each piece of pastry into 8 pieces with a sharp knife. Arrange in a single layer on the lined baking sheet. Brush each piece with egg wash.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve with tzatziki sauce.
