  • 1 package puff pastry
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 12 oz package meatless crumbles I used MorningStar Farms Grillers Crumbles
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 eggs divided
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Vegemite optional
  • Ketchup for serving


  • Thaw your puff pastry overnight in the fridge or on the counter for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Cover a baking sheet with foil and lightly grease or spray with cooking spray.  Set aside.
  • To prepare the filling, begin by dicing the onion.  Heat a large nonstick skillet 0ver medium heat, add butter and the onion and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the garlic, meatless crumbles, and water to the onions.  Cook for another 8 minutes.
  • Place the onion mixture in a medium bowl.  Add 1 egg, panko bread crumbs, soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, and Vegemite.  Mix well.  Allow to cool.
  • While the filling is cooling, prepare the puff pastry.  Flour a countertop, place one puff pastry sheet on the floured surface.  The sheets start as 10"x 15", with a floured rolling pin, roll to about 15" x 18".  Cut the sheet into thirds (a pizza cutter is helpful for this) that measure about 5" x "18 each.
  • Place about 1/6 of the filling in the middle of one of the rectangles.  Gently bring both edges of the sheet together to form a roll and press edges together.  Roll over so the seam is facing downward.  Cut the roll into about 6 pieces.  Gently place on the baking sheet with foil leaving an inch or two between each piece so they can rise.
  • Repeat the steps for the rest of the pieces.  You'll likely have to bake in 2 or 3 batches in the oven, so don't try to fit them all on one tray.
  • To make your egg wash, place your remaining egg in a small bowl and beat with a fork.  Set aside.
  • When your baking sheet is full, gently brush each roll with the egg wash and bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown.  Serve with ketchup.
