Serves: 20 small or 12 mid size
Prep/Cook Time: 1 hour
Skill Level: Easy


  • 2 (375g packets) Carême All Butter Puff Pastry, defrosted and halved
  • 500g beef mince (not lean)
  • ½ cup store-bought caramelised onions (we use Beerenberg Caramelised Onion)
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs, made from day-old bread
  • 2 tablespoons fresh continental parsley, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds and sesame seeds
  • Tomato relish, to serve.
All Butter Puff Pastry


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced (200°C conventional) and line two large baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Combine the beef mince, caramelised onion, breadcrumbs, garlic, and parsley in a large bowl and season well. Mix gently with your hands until just combined (making sure you don’t work the mixture too much).
  3. Divide the beef mixture into 4 and spoon 1/4 of the mixture down the middle of each pastry piece. Roll the pastry over to enclose the filling. Cut each roll into three pieces and place rolls, seam-side down, onto lined baking trays. Brush the pastry with egg and sprinkle the tops with poppy and sesame seeds.
  4. Place into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until the pastry is golden and the meat is cooked through. Serve warm with tomato relish.

Can freeze for up to 3 months un-baked. Bake from frozen, add 5 minutes to cooking time.
