These Beef Friands are simply delicious! Puff pastry is stuffed with minced beef, onions, bread, milk, tomato sauce, salt, pepper and parsley. The stuffing is prepared and rests for 1 hour before being used to make Friands.
This dish is a French specialty. The Friand is tasted as a starter, as an appetizer, as a snack accompanied by a green salad. Everybody likes it! The crispy side of the Friand is absolutely delicious. It will make you want more!
Reheating Instructions: Friands must be cooked in the oven from frozen:
Preheat the oven to 200°, bake the Friands for 20-30 min at 180° until they are golden and enjoy!
About your cook, Micheline
I come from a family where good food and large family meals are the joy of life. I have unforgettable memories where my mother and sisters, excellent cooks, spent hours concocting magnificent meals! Home cooking brings people together and good food makes you smile! My family upbringing brought me great values and in particular the respect for food, non-waste and the pleasure of the taste buds. Coming from a family where mum cooked different dishes every day, I can thank her for having developed in me the pleasure of cooking. It is so rewarding when you are told that it is so good or when you are asked for another plate!
My cuisine is mainly French and European with a strong Asian influence. I am a citizen of the world for having travelled for more than 10 years and discovered many flavours. I have family recipes but I'm always on the lookout for new cooking ideas.
I like to cook because I like to please. I can say that I cook with love! It is very important because I want to offer the best to my family. I appreciate knowing what's on my plate. So cooking is the best way to eat a balanced and varied diet!
In France, I was a commercial engineer but the pleasure of cooking was lacking so I created a catering company where I cooked from home. It was a great experience with satisfied customers. In Sydney for two and a half years, I work as a cook in a Japanese restaurant and also as a French teacher occasionally and can’t wait to cook for you too. *** BON APPÉTIT ! ***
