Thermomix mushroom pastries
Perfect for finger food, lunch boxes or a simply a casual dinner, these mushroom pastries will be sure to have everyone returning for seconds! Of course, you don’t have to make mini ones as I’ve done – use the mushroom mixture to make full-size ‘sausage’ rolls. The other great part about this recipe is that while you have to chill the mushroom mixture for at least an hour, it can hang out in the fridge for a day or two, meaning it’s a good one to get started on the weekend or when you’ve got a little more time, and then simply shape and bake when wanting to serve. Easy!
