We love a good pasty and this is a recipe I've developed to highlight the best of the flavors. We love butter pastry over lard or shortening, so this recipe uses a butter pastry crust recipe originally from Gourmet magazine. Prep time does not include one hour to chill pastry dough. There will be filling left over that I like to bake in a separate dish (covered!) for the little one. Enjoy!

THe butter crust was delicious. We use half Italian sausage, half hamburger, red onion and Yukon Gold potatoes. We also cut down the amount of salt in the feeling. Besides that these are some of my best parties ever!
