    On a work surface, roll 1 sheet of puff pastry. Put 1/4 teaspoon mounds of mushroom mixture on the pastry, evenly spacing them in 5 rows of 4. Top the mushroom mound with a piece of beef, seared side up. With a sharp knife, cut the pastry into even squares around the meat and mushrooms. Beat one egg and using a small paint brush and working 1 at a time, brush beateb egg on edges of pastery around the beef and mushroom. pull 2 opposite sides of pastry up over each beef piece, then fold the ends over the top to make a packet. Repeat with the remaining beef, mushrooms, and pastry. Preheat to the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake the Wellingtons until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the oven to a serving platter and let cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
