Vol Au Vent alpine ISO recipe
 
When I was little, my favorite place was this Swiss bakery & restaurant. I'd always order a dish called vou le vont alpine or maybe voulez volant alpine(some spelling mistakes probably, but that was how it was pronounced). It was basically a tall puff pastry, stacked up like a tower. It was filled with mushrooms and sliced sausage in a creamy peppery white sauce. I can almost taste it. Sadly, the gal that owned moved back to Switzerland. I was too young at the time to wize up and ask the recipe. Tons of karma to anyone who can help me out with this recipe!!! I am begging for help!
Thanks very much!

Attachment 1218corazon90, If they looked anything like these, then I have a few recipes for their fillings. I love them too, I however buy the crust. I have realised over time that for the fillings, the sky is the limit. Just make sure it's not runny.

My favorite vol au vent stuffing is as follows.
I heat up about a tbs of olive oil, , then add half a chopped onion, then two crushed garlics, then chopped parsley, then chopped mushrooms , then add half a glass of white wine, then let to simmer, then add chopped carrots and vegetable stock(same amount as wine)Simmer, then add four tbs of sour cream, then thicken with flour, add a few drizzles of tabaso, worshester sauce and then let to cool down, then spoon into the already prepared crusts, then put in the oven for 10 mins. :chef:

I found this one

I think this is the closest to what I am looking for. Specifically the sausage & mushroom filling. Think I'll sub the bacon for sausage. What kind of sausage do you think would be good in this? I plan on browning then slicing the sausage. I think bangers would be good.
