    Cover the baking tray with parchment paper and make a rectangle slightly larger than the filet mignon with the crust mixture. Place the filet mignon in the center then place the remaining preparation on the filet mignon to cover it completely. Make 1 small hole on each side then bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
