Pastries filled with cabbage- bacon is optional

Today, I am going to give you a recipe for cabbage puff pastry triangles, that is very easy to make and can satisfy a crowd, vegetarians or not.

Make them for a party and these heavenly pastries are going to be the stars on the table. If you want to make them non vegetarian, add some bacon when you cook the cabbage. Yum!

Filled pastries are very popular in Eastern Europe. It is a versatile snack that can be savory or sweet. You can have it for breakfast, or lunch(if you pair it with a salad, for example).

I am sure the ones who traveled not only to Eastern Europe, but all over Europe, they noticed that every corner of the street has a little pastry shop that will offer a multitude of bake goods, from pretzels to pies and pastries.

Some of them are so popular that people are waiting in line for them. It is an “on the go” type of meal when you run around the city with business. It is also a very cheap way of eating.


I bet that if you are here on this page is because you have some frozen puff pastry in the freezer and you need to do something with it.

Step 1– Defrost the puff pastry

First thing first, you will need to defrost it. I always have a package in the freezer for emergencies or cravings of all sorts. Sometimes I use cheese, sometimes I use ham, or even ground meat.

One piece of advice I have for defrosting the puff pastry is to not forget about it on the counter.

Ideally, it should sit at room temperature for no more than 40 minutes, otherwise will be hard to work with it.

Step 2– Make the filling

While the puff pastry is defrosting, chop the onion and shred the cabbage. Grab a skillet and heat up a little bit of oil.

Add the chopped onion. Saute until translucent, then add the shredded cabbage, salt and pepper and cook until soft.

If you want to add bacon, this is the time to do it. Cook the bacon first, then add the onion and the cabbage to it.

Set aside and let cool a little bit.

Step 3- get the puff pastry ready for filling

Meanwhile, on a floured surface roll out the puff pastry sheet and cut it to squares of the desired size.

Step 4- Make the pastries

Place a spoonful of cabbage in the middle, fold and close with the help of a fork or fingers.

Place each pastry on a baking pan lined with parchment paper or silicone mat.

Step 5- Bake the pastries

Brush them with beaten egg (use a pastry brush) and bake the pastries at 400F for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.

These sound delicious. I will be making them soon. There a lot of sweet pastry recipes available, not as many savory ones. Also saved your farmer's cheese pastries. Will subscribe to your newsletter and follow you on Pinterest.

Thank you Linda for your kind words. I just had these pastries with sweet cabbage last night, in a restaurant in Bucharest, while on vacation. I love them! Hope you you enjoy them too!

Oh wow, those look amazing! We love cabbage at our house. Now I'm going to have to check my store's freezer section and see if I can get a whole wheat version of that puff pastry. What a wonderful and easy-to-make recipe. Elegant in its simplicity.

Hi Kathryn, I am so happy you like the recipe. I love savory pastries with any fillings. The cabbage ones are really good. I hope you find the whole wheat puff pastry. I could not find that anywhere and I am too lazy to make it from scratch. :-)
