I wouldn't cook beyond 135 degrees for med.rare,also use chopped chicken liver pate rather than mushrooms for more flavor.

Hi Barvara, I have not tried that but I would recommend preparing them through step 13 of the recipe card, then wrap them tightly in plastic wrap to store in the fridge. When your ready to bake, pre-heat the oven then remove the plastic wrap from the wellingtons and continue preparing starting at step 14. Good luck, I hope they turn out great for you :)
