Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2
pre-packaged, uncooked pie crusts
1 lb
slab bacon
6 oz
duck or chicken pate (your choice)
6 oz
cremini mushrooms
3
shallots
2 oz
rum
1/2 c
balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp
honey
canola oil for deep frying
1/2 c
all purpose flour
2 Tbsp
cayenne pepper
1
egg
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put mushrooms, shallots, and rum in a food processor and pulse til fairly smooth, but still a little chunky. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a sauté pan and cook til all the moisture is gone and the mixture has reduced by half. Set aside.
2
Heat about 5 inches of canola oil in a large saucepan to 300 degrees. Cut the slab bacon into 6 even portions. Mix flour and cayenne together and dredge the bacon. Shake off the excess and deep fry for about 5 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp. Remove the bacon to a paper towel.
3
Add the balsamic vinegar and honey to a sauté pan and reduce it by half. Add the bacon and bathe them in the sauce.
4
Lay out one piecrust and place the bacon slabs on top, about ½ inch apart. Cut the pate to fit on top of the bacon, about 1/8 inch thick. Place about ½ tsp of the mushroom mixture on top of the pate.
5
Carefully lay the other piecrust on top, making sure you leave enough room to reach the other piecrust. (Think of ravioli). Place a ring mold (or a drinking glass) that is about ½ inch larger than each Wellington over one of the parcels and press down firmly enough to cut the crust. Repeat for the rest of the parcels. Remove the excess crust.
6
Using your fingers, roll the edges pf each parcel like you would an empanada. (or you can simply crimp with the tines of a fork). Transfer parcels to a greased baking sheet.
7
Beat the egg with a little water and brush n top of each parcel.
8
Bake in a 350 degree over for 15-20 minutes, or until crusts are browned.
