Savory turnovers have a variety of names: bialys, bierrocks, blachinda, calzones, empanadas, kol borek, pasties, runzas, samosas, sukkot knishes, turnovers, and uzka saveur to name some. Serve them for appetizers, lunch or dinner with a salad or bowl of soup.
This is a traditional Northern family recipe of mine. Fantastic and very flexible as you can pick and choose what you put in your own pasties to fit your tastes. Plus any leftover filling can be used to make a meat pie or be served with rice as leftovers.
I have been making these for years and usually have them with Recipe #213326 on a Saturday night. They have a little cheese stuffing and are wraped up in a crescent roll. Then I put mustard and relish on them when they are on my plate. The others just eat them with a little mustard. They are so good.
Okay, so you're not anywhere near the Texas Hillcountry, but you are craving kolaches. Or you ARE in the Texas Hillcountry but you don't really feel like making a real yeast dough and you're craving kolaches. What do you do? Cheat.
This is from "More Make Your Own Groceries". There are instructions for both eating right away and freezing to eat later. This is one of several dishes I made in preparation for the birth of my daughter and would probably be good for someone who doesn't usually have enough time (or energy) to make a healthy meal for themselves every day, but has a period of time to make this. I've probably estimated prep time on the high side because I'm a slow cooker.
This recipe was given to me by my Aunt, Carol Cron. My Great Grandfather Tretheway loved meat pies, and this recipe has been with us forever. You can use round steak if you wish. You may also make 1 large pie rather than 5 pasties.
Tourtiere is a French Canadian meat pie that is traditionally served on Christmas Eve. I first ever had these at the home of a French Canadian friend..I have been making them at Christmas time as a make ahead appetizer for years now. It can be made into one individual pie, but I prefer the individual tarts..I freeze these individually on cookie sheets and then vacuum seal in my bagger or can be stored in a plastic container.
Forget about ordering in! These hearty stuffed "pizzas", filled with smoky ham and cheese are less expensive than take-out and a snap to bake. Just stock up on prepared pizza dough-readily available in the refrigerated or frozen food sections of the supermarkets.
