Mini pulled pork burgers
Preheat the oven to 220 degrees.
Place the puff pastry sheets on top of each other to thaw. Press the edges and roll them out with a rolling pin into a square piece that is as thick as a slice of puff pastry.
Cut 32 small circles out of the dough with a cookie cutter or a glass. Spread them on a baking sheet (you may have to bake them in two batches). Poke holes in them and brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle half of the rounds with sesame seeds. Bake the puff pastry in the oven for 10 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
Meanwhile, heat the pulled pork.
Cut the fennel and green apple into wafer-thin, small pieces. Add lemon juice and olive oil to taste and massage in well with your hands (this will cause the salad to shrink). Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Place the cranberries, sugar and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Let it simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until you have a nice cranberry sauce. Add a little extra water if it boils dry. If you don’t like bits in your cranberry sauce, you can still puree it in the blender and strain it.
Use the rounds of puff pastry without sesame seeds as the bottom of the burgers. Spoon on some pulled pork and some of the salad. Finish with a spoonful of cranberry sauce and a round of puff pastry with sesame seeds.
