  1. Help! Forgive me when I say this, i have a 1 year old whose molars are coming in.. well I got everything ready and just realized I bought phillo dough.. I’m trying to make it work anyways but do you have any suggestions on cooking temp/time?

    • Oh wow! I think you can but you will definitely get a different result. And my concern would be if the ground beef is cooked well enough. Did you try it? And how did it work?

  2. Most of my family does not like mushrooms… but I love them(!) This is going to sound extremely ridiculous, but does it have a pretty mushroom flavour- can I get away with using the mushroom mixture you think, or is there any suggestions you have to substitute in place if the mushroom mixture? I’d love it, I’m very confident of that, but I don’t want to have a complaining household. I’d so love to make this!!!

    • I don’t think it’s heavy in mushroom flavor but then again I like mushrooms. You might try zucchini or even potato (cook it first in the microwave or it won’t cook enough ). Good luck! Let me know how it turns out.

  3. 4 stars
    I made these for supper tonight. They were enjoyed by all, and extremely easy to make with items I already had on hand. I found that the pastry browned too much in the oven for the full 40 minutes. However, the ground beef wasn’t thoroughly cooked at 30 minutes. It was delicious, despite the slightly over-dark crust. I will absolutely make it again. My six-year-old even wants it for lunch at school tomorrow. And that’s the best review I ever get.

    • Hooray!! I would recommend thinning the ground beef patty just a bit. And making sure the puff pastry stays really cold. Also, you could put a bit of a tent over the top to help it not over brown. But sounds like, you have a winner winner burger dinner!

  4. Have you tried freezing them raw or cooked or is this a bad idea? I am making these this weekend 👌🏼

    • I haven’t. Because refreezing the pastry is sometimes a bad idea. Also, it make take a long time for the hamburger to cook in the center. But, they can be made ahead and popped into the fridge for a few hours until you are ready to bake.
