Recipe by Chef Joey Z.
I found the original recipe in an old Family Circle magazine from 2002. I changed the main ingredient from turkey to Gimme Lean ground beef style soy. Instead of the egg and I used plain Silk Coffee Creamer to brush on the puff pastry. I also added some Worcestershire's sauce and a few drops of Tabasco, some fresh basil and ground sage as well as some cubed potato and Malibar spinach instead of regular spinach. I also sprinkled some black sesame seeds on top of the loaf for interest. You can probably use ground beef, ground chicken or some other ground meat in here if you prefer.
- 1 lb lean ground turkey
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach (thawed and drained.)
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄8 ounces herb with garlic soup mix
- 1 (17 1/4 ounce) package puff pastry
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat your oven to 400'F.
- Combine the turkey, spinach and soup mix in a bowl. Set aside.
- On a lightly floured board, unfold 1 sheet of the thawed puff pastry (I use Sarah Lee). This is Parve so I feel good about using it.
- Lay the pastry out with the with the fold lines on the pastry going vertically.
- Cut slits on each side of the pastry and mound the filling onto the pastry between the two fold marks.
- Starting at one end fold the pastry strips over the filling, alternating each side to cover.
- Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Beat the egg and brush over the pastry.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes until the pastry is crispy and golden.
- If you use an instant-read thermometer it should register 160'F when inserted through the center.
- Cool slightly, then slice and serve.
- Bon Apetit.
