Sure, these Beef Wellington Burgers aren’t meant to be handheld but they do welcome a side of fries with open arms!

What do you serve your family for Christmas dinner? I made the decision after we had our first baby that I wasn’t going to make a large dinner. I love making an elaborate dinner, but save it for Thanksgiving. On Christmas, I want to spend the day with my family enjoying each other’s company and watching the menagerie open their gifts. Instead, we feast on spaghetti and meatballs. It’s easy, everyone loves it and if I’m on top of my game, the meatballs were prepared ahead of time.
But this year, I think I might’ve thought of a new holiday dinner idea…
Beef is the centerpiece of many holiday feasts. Premium roasts, such as Ribeye, Rib and Tenderloin are very popular at holiday time. However, more economical roast choices – Round Tip, Top Sirloin and Eye Round – are also delicious holiday options. I had to wonder what would happen if you take economical everyday ground beef and treat it as a premium cut? I decided to put a twist on a traditional beef dish and created Beef Wellington Burgers as a holiday dinner option. No beef tenderloin required! Comforting, easy to create, grocery budget friendly and really, who wouldn’t want fries served alongside their Christmas dinner?
Beef Wellington is a preparation of filet steak coated with mushrooms, onions and shallots, which is then wrapped in puff pastry and baked. Delicious, right? But, who has time to prepare something like that on Christmas day? Not I! Instead, I deconstructed this classic dish to make it just a bit more attainable by anyone wanting to give it a try. In all honesty, you might just have all the ingredients required already in your fridge or pantry.

Did you know that there are 17,000 beef farming families in Ohio, and 98 percent are family farms? Watch this video series from the Ohio Beef Council to see how Ohio beef farmers change their animal care routines as the weather gets colder. I’m definitely appreciative of all that they do so that we all can enjoy a delicious beef dinner like my Beef Wellington Burgers on Christmas day.
