25 Simple Savory Puff Pastry Recipes

I don’t know about you guys, but just reading the words ‘savory puff pastry recipes’ makes my mouth water. 

Puff pastry dough is one of my favorite ingredients. I love cooking with it.

It doesn’t matter if I’m making something sweet or savory, puff pastry dough is a go-to for me.

It just adds such a flaky, buttery wonderfulness that’s hard to beat, no matter what you’re making. For this list, I’ve stuck to 25 of my favorite savory recipes.

But don’t worry, if you’re looking for puff pastry desserts, I have you covered on those, as well.

Now, without further ado, let’s get into some of my favorite savory treats. 

1. Gruyere, Mushroom, & Caramelized Onion Bites

Even though these take less than an hour to make, they look amazing and taste even better.

They look like super high-class appetizers, making them perfect for any occasion.

And they taste like Krystal hamburgers, only so much better. (That mostly comes from the caramelized onions and gruyere.)

2. Asparagus Tart 

I’m not sure what part of this tasty tart is the best – the warm, flaky crust or the tender, perfectly seasoned asparagus.

Oh! And let’s not forget the Gruyere and Parmesan cheeses! 

Basically, this tart packs a ton of deliciousness into every single bite, and you won’t even have to be an asparagus fan to appreciate how good it is.

3. Leek and Onion Puff Pastry Tart 

Speaking of incredible tarts… you won’t want to miss out on this leek and onion one either, especially if you’re a fan of earthy flavors and creamy Camembert cheese. 

Seriously, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. 

4. Feta and Spinach Puff Pastry Appetizers

Spinach and feta are two of those foods that just fit together.

Whether you put them in a stuffed pretzel, a tart, or a quiche, they’ll taste fantastic.

Now imagine that unique feta and spinach taste inside a warm, buttery puff pastry shell.

Yep! It’s just as good as you’re imagining… maybe even better.

5. Mini-Spinach and Feta Pies

More spinach and feta! More puffed pastry crust! What more do you need to know?

I’m telling you, there’s nothing quite like the combination of those three ingredients. Together, they’re the perfect food. 

6. Chicken Spinach and Artichoke Puff Pastry Parcels 

Spinach and artichoke may be one of the few combinations as epic as spinach and feta, so I decided to throw this recipe in after the feta ones for that reason.

These are like the best spinach artichoke dip you’ve ever tasted, only they also contain tender, juicy chicken breasts and are wrapped in perfect puff pastry dough.

What’s not to love?

7. Tomato Tarts Puff Pastry Appetizer

If you’re looking for something new to do with all your fresh garden tomatoes, you’ll have to try these tomato tarts. 

You’ll season each one with pepper, basil, and rosemary and cover them in shredded mozzarella cheese before baking them.

They’re buttery, cheesy, and garden-fresh and take only 30 minutes to make. Perfection! 

8. Goat Cheese Smoked Salmon Puff Pastry Bites

These bite-size morsels are some of the most interesting, unexplainable things I’ve ever tasted.

Neither salmon nor goat cheese is my favorite ingredient.

However, somehow, when you put them together, their brash, bold tastes complement each other perfectly for a cohesive flavor that I absolutely adore.

I know that makes no sense whatsoever, but they’re pretty, they taste great, and they’re surprisingly filling. Give them a try. You won’t regret it. 

9. Cheesy Mushroom Spinach Puff Pastry

The cheesy mushroom spinach puff pastry is like nothing so much as an upscale, homemade Hot Pocket, and I mean that in the very best possible way. 

It has a gorgeous brown crust that’s delightfully crunchy and a filling of spinach, cheese, mushrooms, and garlic that no one could refuse.

It’s phenomenal.

10. Puff Pastry Squares with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

All you’ll need to make these simple squares is goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and puff pastry.

They’re the easiest appetizers you’ll ever make, but they sacrifice nothing in taste and texture.

11. Baked Brie en Croûte with Honey, Dried Cherries, Rosemary & Pecans

Ahhhh… baked brie. For many of us, just those two words are enough to know we’re going to love this dish. 

But if you need more, imagine baked brie with a buttery puff pastry crust, honey, dried cherries, chopped pecans, and rosemary. 

This lovely dish smells as good as it tastes, and it tastes as good as it looks.

If you’re looking for something to wow the crowd at your next gathering, this is it.

12. Beet Wellington

You’re probably acquainted with the famous beef wellington, but you may be less familiar with its vegan cousin, the beet wellington. 

It’s gorgeous, and the balsamic vinegar sauce is so good, it’ll make your eyes roll back in your head. 

If you aren’t a huge fan of beets, you may still enjoy this dish.

It has so many other flavorful ingredients – walnuts, spinach, shallots, garlic, mushrooms, etc. – that the beets aren’t overpowering.

Plus, its thin, flaky crust is amazingly crispy. I’d almost go so far as to say it’s perfectly crispy.

13. Salami and Cheese Pinwheels

Pinwheels always make a fun and easy snack, and by using puff pastry dough, they’ll be fun, easy, and exceptionally yummy.

You’ll only need five ingredients to make four dozen of these adorable appetizers, and they take less than an hour (excluding chill time).  

14. Asparagus Prosciutto Puff Pastry Bundles Appetizer

If you were to ask my brother, he’d tell you that these are the perfect appetizers because they have the only three food groups that matter – meat, cheese, and a vegetable. 

(Yes, he thinks cheese is a food group.)

Truthfully, though, these little bundles of joy are pretty incredible.

The cheese is gooey and delicious; the asparagus is tender (and better with a bit of garlic salt), and the prosciutto is on point.

It’s hard not to eat way too many of these whenever they’re available. 

15. Pigs in a Puff Pastry Blanket

Pigs in a blanket are always a hit, no matter the occasion. However, making them with puff pastry dough instead of crescent rolls is a top-class chef move. 

Once you add the egg wash and throw on the poppy and sesame seeds, it’s pretty much game over. These will be the talk of the table.

16. Savory Vegetable Galette

I’m not sure there’s a better dish on the planet for vegetable lovers than the savory vegetable galette. It has everything a veggie-lover could want. 

As much as I love puff pastry, it’s not even the star of the show with this dish.

That honor is reserved for the incredibly diverse vegetable filling.

You can play with the recipe if you like, but as-is, it calls for onions, mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, zucchini, tomatoes, and more!

You can’t tell me that isn’t going to blow the mind of all your vegetarian friends.

17. Puff Pastry Vegetable Strudel

I put this one right after the galette because, in terms of savory vegetable recipes, this one might be the only one that has a chance of coming close to it. 

It features many of the same delicious vegetables, along with gooey mozzarella cheese and plenty of herbs. In short, it’s equally mouth-wateringly good.

18. Puff Pastry Jalapeno Popper Pinwheels

These puffy pinwheel poppers are full of cheesy heat that’ll have you sweating but coming back for more.

Requiring only six ingredients and 30 minutes to make, they’re bound to be your new favorite snack.

19. Cheese and Fig Savory Palmiers

These walk the border between sweet and savory.

But since figs aren’t super sweet and there is plenty of cheddar in each one, I thought I could get away with adding them to the savory list. 

The texture is the same one you know and love from palmiers cookies, but these are less sweet and more filling.

Plus, you can make them with only three ingredients, and that’s a WIN!

20. Puff Pastry Cheese Straws

Why waste your money on store-bought cheese straws that are full of additives and other weird ingredients when you can make your own at home?

All you’ll need is puff pastry, water, an egg, Gruyere and Parmesan cheeses, cayenne pepper, and paprika.

You can whip up half a dozen in 30 minutes or less, and they are the bomb! 

21. Puff Pastry Pepperoni Pizza

Yep! Even pizza tastes better on puff pastry dough!

This recipe is for pepperoni, but you can easily adjust it to include your favorite pizza toppings on this crispy, flaky crust.

22. Chicken Pot Pie

There are few things in this world as wonderful, comforting, and as “feels like home” like a chicken pot pie, but they can be a lot of work.

By using puff pastry dough and store-bought rotisserie chicken, though, you can save yourself a lot of hassle and make four of them in just a bit over an hour.

The crust is perfect, the filling is rich and creamy, and all the veggies are tender and tasty. There’s literally no bad here. 

23. Ham and Cheese Puffs

I have nothing against a tasty hot ham and cheese sandwich, but honestly, why stop there and deprive yourself of the even more yummy treat you could have with these ham and cheese puffs?

They have the same great ham and cheese taste you love, but there’s also the buttery, flaky puff pastry crust, spinach, salt, pepper, and Swiss cheese.

And let’s be honest; ham and cheese sandwiches just taste better with Swiss cheese. 

24. Buffalo Chicken Puff Pastry Pinwheels

If you have any lingering doubts that you can add buffalo chicken to anything, these puff pastry pinwheels should help you overcome that. 

Honestly, though, the zesty flavor of the buffalo sauce pairs perfectly with the buttery goodness of the puff pastry.

The chicken is juicy and succulent, and the hot sauce adds just the right amount of kick. If you’re a fan of buffalo chicken, you’ll love these. 

25. Mini-Apple Cheddar Pies

I may be breaking the rules a little with these pies because they, too, walk that fine line between savory and sweet.

Thanks to the apples, brown sugar, and apple pie spice, they have the same wonderful, sugary apple pie taste you know and love. 

However, the sharp cheddar gives them an unbeatable richness that’s not at all sweet but just as delectable in a different way. 

Best of all, they’re effortless to make, so if you’re looking for the ideal fall treat, give this recipe a try.
