Stuffed Kidney Cushions

Whats.Cooking's picture
  Lambs kidneys 6
  Mushrooms 4 Ounce, very finely chopped (125 Gram)
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Sherry/Wine / brandy 1 Tablespoon
  Dijon mustard/Strong mustard 2 Teaspoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), crushed
  Dried oregano 1 Teaspoon
  Dried white breadcrumbs 1 Tablespoon
  Frozen puff pastry 8 Ounce (250 Gram)
  Beaten egg/Milk 1 Fluid Ounce (To Glaze)
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

Skin the kidneys and, using sharp scissors, cut out the fat and membrane in each one and make the pocket as large as possible.
Put the mushrooms into a small saucepan with the butter, alcohol, mustard, garlic, and oregano.
Cook for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is thick and only very slightly liquid.
Stir in the breadcrumbs, season to taste with salt and pepper, then cool.
Roll out the pastry thinly and divide into six even-sized rectangles.
Stuff the kidneys with the cooled stuffing.
Put each kidney on to a piece of pastry.
Wet the edges; fold in the short sides first, then the long sides.
The pastry won't meet - you should have covered the kidney but be able to see the stuffing through the gap in the pastry.
Brush with beaten egg or milk to glaze.
Bake at 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7 for 20 minutes.
Serve hot.
