Michigan Pasties

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by catercow

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.

This is far from the recipe that I grew up with in Ishpeming Michigan.. We used beef ,onion,carrot,potato,and sometimes rutabagas ..also used onoin salt, salt sand pepper and dotted each with a pat of butter. Wwe make pasties twice a year at our church and this is also how they are made. Thank yo for listening. search out recipes .com for the traditional cornish pasties.. Delicious
