Instant Vortex Aryfryer Recipe
Buttery flaky pastry with a deliciously savory stuffing that melts in your mouth! Pairs well with a shot of espresso taking me into a happy zone because it tastes so good in the morning!
"So delicious that I can eat these all day along with a Vietnamese cà phê sữa đá (iced coffee)!"
Bánh Patê Sô is a savory Vietnamese meat pie based on the French Pâté Chaud. Fillings vary from one family recipe to the next. This decadent treat is traditionally made of puff pastry and filled with ground pork. When you bite into this pastry, the layers of crispy flakey buttery goodness fill your senses and then the rich savory meat joins the party in your mouth! The puff pastry's delicate texture is complemented by the juicy chewiness of the ground pork paté.
My recipe makes twenty-four paté sô. If you don't plan to eat them all and just want to prep them in advance for later or breakfast on another day; you can freeze them! Prepare all the meat pies, place on baking tray and set them in the freezer for a few hours. Once frozen you can store them in a container all together. When you want to enjoy them, place directly into the oven or airfryer. They do not need to be defrosted. Just increase airfrying/baking time to 1-3 additional minutes. Keeps in freezer for 6-months.
