Cajun Duck Tarts
2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups ground duck or goose meat
4 green onions, thinly sliced
3 cups mushrooms, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves, minced
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 egg (optional), lightly beaten
1 tablespoon whipping cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Lightly grease a tart or muffin pan. Cut each puff pastry sheet into 4 equal squares. Place squares evenly over the greased cups, allowing the excess pastry to overlap the edges of the cups. Press the pastry lightly into the cups. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the pastry is puffy and golden brown. Allow to cool.
Step 2. Met butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the ground duck or goose meat and lightly brown. Add green onions, mushrooms, garlic, and rosemary. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes.
Step 3. Remove mixture from heat and stir in cheese, egg (optional), cream, and salt and pepper to taste. Spoon mixture into puff pastry cups and place in the 400° F oven for 4 to 5 minutes.
