A Yank's Wellies
basically the French “filet de bœuf en croute”
(fillet of beef in pastry). BTW the name has
nothing to do with the English hero, but rather it
was invented for a civic reception in Wellington,
New Zealand. So really no reason to get all
snobby about it. Here is a truly an American
(Yanks) version. Made for 21st century tastes.
(sorry no layer of pâté de foie gras).
Easiest way to make this is to make extra and save
back a couple of hamburgers. Keep the patties
frozen and thaw out when ready to fix. Before you
know it you will have a fancy – serve to guests –
dinner from frozen hamburger left-overs. It will be
6 cooked hamburger patties – (room
2 cloves garlic chopped fine
6 slices American cheese
Saute them together in 1 tbs olive oil over
medium heat for about 8 minutes until the
moisture is cooked out of the mushrooms.
Add the Whiskey and let them cook down for
2 more minutes. Remove from heat and let
To assemble: Whip the egg in a small bowl
and have a pastry brush handy.
In another small bowl mix the ketchup / mayo/
pickle relish so it makes a nice sandwich
On a lightly floured board. Unroll the croissant
dough. With a rolling pin carefully roll that out
large enough to wrap 3 of the burgers.
Spoon some of the mushroom mixture on top
and wrap the dough over. Seal with egg wash
and brush some on top of each bundle.
Place on a lined baking tray. With a sharp
paring knife cut a few slits on top of each to
vent any steam.
Serve with side. If your guests prefer a spicer
taste, try using shrimp cocktail sauce mixed
with low fat mayo for the spread inside. If
using a typical hot sauce be sure to mix with
mayo so that it seals the bottom of pastry
from becoming soggy.
For our music tonight:
So happy to serve up something so unique
for my Master.
To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
