This is for everyone who loves beef wellington and never could get the right doneness. I tried more than I care to count and finally I thought why not just make it with meatloaf? Sounded good at the time and actually turned out fantastic. I took it to work with me and it was a big hit so I have made it since. One of my fellow nurses "all night shift" said to me hey you should call this your peasant wellington and so it stuck. It is really easy and a make ahead dish. So try your favorite meatloaf recipe and add the puff pastry to make you look like a star!

How to Make Meatloaf Peasant Wellington

Step-by-Step

  1. mix all the ingredients above gently so as not to dry out the meat and place in loaf pan with removable bottom if you have one
  2. bake at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes the juices on top will be clear and you will know that the meatloaf is done
  3. remove puff pastry and let it warm up if you take it out of the freezer the night before and put it in the fridge it is ready when you are remove meatloaf from oven and let cool down while you lightly roll the puff pastry out not much bigger than it is already about 2 inches
  4. place meatloaf on pastry, top down and fold like a present with the seam side down, cut extra little leaves or what design you want out of the other pastry to place on top and sides of pastry just to decorate and I always cook 10 extra leaves to place on each slice also
  5. turn pastry over and brush with the egg wash then place your little cutouts all over it and bake 25-30 minutes until golden brown, remove and serve with your favorite veggie, my kids use to bring the leftovers out for breakfast or to snack on watching TV.
