This was an AWESOME dish! We made this with a side of Marmalade Carrots. We halved the recipe and substituted phyllo instead of puff pastry and cooked them in individual souffle dishes. Everyone was more than satisfied with the portion amount. We reduced the mushroom to 1/2 cup and increased the cheese slightly. We omitted the sauce in one serving due to personal preference and it still was 5-star worthy! Thank you for sharing this wonderful Disney take on the classic Beef Wellington. ~Buddha
