I guess the filling would need to be not too wet.
Also, how should I bake them? on cookie sheet lined with foil I guess, on a rack to brown more evenly?
I guess if the whole thing falls apart it will just be deconstructed meat pot pie..

Think Beef Wellington, but with veggies thrown in. Precook everything and drain off any juices. Add a little clarified butter, with S&P to taste, and fold the puff pastry around it. Potato and carrot, or rutabaga will help control the moisture content. Bake in a hot oven - 400'F until the pastry is browned. Serve with a good gravy, or even ketchup.
