I have been a big fan of Pepperidge Farms products for years but never got a chance to try the Puff Pastry Sheets until last week. I honestly got hooked! The quality of the puff pastry is over the top, so flakey and easy to use! You can find the Puff Pastry Sheets in the frozen aisle (keep it in you freezer until ready to use). This product can be a great quick fix appetizer and goes well with tons of entrees, too.

Tasting this beef curry puff dish transports me somewhere in the UK, maybe to the Paddington area of London where there is a great mix of ethnicities and food. The texture of the Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets are flakey yet taste buttery, and go perfectly well in contrasting the smooth and curry, beef and vegetarian combination inside. I added just enough in my ingredients to fill each curry puff and keep it a big airy, which I enjoy as I bite into them. There’s definitely room in the puff though to add more curry, beef or veggies.

Puffs are very flexible and could do fine as an entrée or dessert. They are addictive and assume that each guest that tries one will likely have at least 3 or 4… plan accordingly. These would taste perfectly fine without beef to make vegetarian curry puffs. Serve this Beef Curry Puff as your holiday appetizer!
