If I only have regular sized muffin trays, could I just make a bigger puff (4")?

Or will the smaller one still keep its shape if I make a small puff and bake it in the bigger tray?

Hi Sara and Michael! All the years my family has been making these, we've never tried a bigger puff—sounds fun! If you increased the puff pastry square size, stuffed it with more filling, and lengthened the bake time, I don't see why that wouldn't work. (I'd try that versus putting a small puff into a larger muffin cup—worried it might fall apart.) Let me know how it turns out if you give it a go!

Wow, thanks so much for the quick response! I will try this today and let you know. Thanks!

4" squares and 2 tbsp mushroom was a little less cute but it worked and people really enjoyed the dish. i baked it about 30 minutes.
