A collection of savory pies; chicken, pork, hamburger, and veggies. See my TURNOVERS cookbook for bialys, bierrocks, blachinda, calzones, empanadas, kol borek, pasties, runzas, samosas, sukkot knishes, turnovers, and uzka saveur to name some. They are wonderful for lunch or dinner with a salad or bowl of soup.
A quick to make chicken and vegetable pasty roll. Or you can make individual pasties. Great for at home or take-to-work lunches, and the perfect gourmet tucker for picnics and when you're attending outdoor sporting events! Adapted from a recipe from the Simply Great Meals Club website.
Posted for Zaar World Tour. This is a recipe with deep and interesting historical significance... nothing says "Cornwall" more than the Cornish Pasty. It was the meal of choice for coal miners, as it was a ultimate own pre packaged "fast food" of it's day, that was practical to eat by holding the crust in coal stained fingers, economical to make and filling. Recipe is adapted from "Favourite English recipes- Traditional fare from around the Counties'. If you make it before I do, I would very much appreciate your feedback.
Please Note: Americans know Swede as "rutabaga" and the Scottish call it "neeps".
A websearch tells me that Swede is a fairly recent root vegetable, and is thought to have originated around the 17th century in Bohemia and is the result of a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. It's popular in colder European countries and is a hardy vegetable similar in texture to turnip. ZWT REGION: England.
This is old-fashioned, from scratch, comfort food. This has been a family favorite for years. I like to take this to other families when they are in need of a meal. It's always a winner. I like making it with leftover turkey, too! I often add some cooked diced potatoes.
This is an adopted recipe from Mean Chef. I plan on making this when my tomatoes are in season. Mean Chefs words are:
I usually don't bother rolling out the puff pastry. Instead I leave the sheet whole as it comes from the box. This makes one larger tart.
Delicious and easy, great for a special occasion or even a week day dinner. The pastry on this is lushious! I used frozen butter and grated it, made it sooo flaky and delicious!! I think one could use almost any filling, I used pink salmon, probably the sockeye would have looked prettier. I'm sure a meat/chicken filling would work beautifully too.
(from one of those little bakefest books, pullout from a magazine.)
This is a versatile recipe that is great for lunch with a green salad, as a snack, or make tiny ones to serve as appetizers. They are freezer friendly. For large lunch appetites you may want to serve two per person. The recipe is medium"HOT" if you want spicy hot add another jalapeno The size and packaging of the puff pastry may vary from country to country. You will want to end up with eight 6" squares approx 1/8" thick.
Cornish pasties originated as portable lunches for tin miners, fishermen and farmers to take to work. Housewives used to make one for each member of the household and mark their initials on one end of the pasty. These complete-meal pasties, which vary slightly in content in different parts of Cornwall, were popular in other parts of the country too. In Bedfordshire, for instance, they put fruit in one end of the pasty, for dessert; these were called "Bedfordshire Clangers." A prime cut of meat, such as rump, is often used in Cornwall for the pasties but, because of the high price of rump, you can use blade. - From britannia.com
I found tomato onion pies in 2 cooking magazines, and put them together to make this outstanding side dish! This is very filling, and goes well with just about any meat you make it with. It is also a nice for brunch along side breakfast meats and egg dishes. This pie is anything but bland, with big sweet onion and tomato flavor. It is good with other flavors of cheese too. I sometimes buy cheese blends, or mix cheddar with mozzarella. If you can't find Vidalias, use a Texas Sweet or Walla Walla Sweet onion. If your tomatoes are still too juicy after chopping, place them in a colander to drain while you chop the onions and cook the bacon. This will keep your crust from getting soggy on the bottom. If your oven browns the edges of pie crust too quickly, wrap the edges of pie crust with foil before baking.
I love quiche, but unfortunately I'm the only one that does. Therefore, making a standard size would be a total waste. With this recipe, I can enjoy my little treats, while having a nourishing meal. These do not take a lot of time to fix, and because they heat up so well, are a great time saver. I find that two are quite sufficient for me.
You could have a great lunch by adding a small salad to go with it. The occasions actually, are endless. Hmmmm, and it's almost lunch time too.
If you're not into onions and zucchini, you can easily substitute with your favourites. How about "Mini Lorraines" ?
As far as the type of cheese goes, try to use something on the milder side. Swiss, or a light cheddar works well. I've also gone 'bold' before too! The Tex-Mex mixes are wonderful.
Experiment, and Enjoy!!!
My Dh just loves any kind of pot pie, so thought I'd try this little different version. It was really good, easy, and filling. I served this with beer bread and a crisp garden salad. I took this from our state daily paper over the holidays. If you like mushrooms, I think you will like this easy recipe. Thanks for trying this.
Last night I was tired and wanted to make something easy after cooking all day. So I grabbed two chicken breast fillets, some puff pastry, frozen peas, sliced leeks and ready made bechamel sauce ...... the recipe looks like a lot of work, but it really isn't - the steps are all so simple. I hope you also find it easy to throw together after a big day!
These scrumptious pies will not last! I usually make the filling the day before to give it the time needed to both cook and to cool down. With the filling ready made, these are quickly assembled and baked.
