This savory and fun alternative to the backyard barbecue favorite can become a staple in your kitchen.  


  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry dough
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, preferably Vidalia, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning, preferably Montreal
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning sauce
  • 5 slice cheese, preferably American, Swiss, or sharp Cheddar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon water


Step 1

  • Let the puff pastry dough sit out at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Step 2

  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Step 3

  • In a bowl, mix the ground beef, onion, steak seasoning, and seasoning sauce together. Form into 5 small, flat patties.

Step 4

  • Place the patties in a slow cooker for 1 hour on high. Remove and top each burger with a slice of cheese.

Step 5

  • Roll the puff pastry sheet to flatten slightly.

Step 6

  • Cut it into 5 relatively even rectangles.

Step 7

  • Cover each burger with a piece of puff pastry and wrap it around the bottom, pinching all of the edges to seal. Place on a baking sheet, pinched side down.

Step 8

  • Whisk together the egg yolk and water to make an egg wash.

Step 9

  • Brush each wrapped pastry with the egg wash.

Step 10

  • Bake for about 15 minutes, until the puff pastry is nice and brown.
