    QueenBee49444's Note:

    A delicious meat pie, the directions do not include the ingredients for the "pie crust" or the gravy. Feel free to use your favorite pie crust and gravy recipe. Originally, pasties were made for miners. Their wives (or mothers) used lard to make the crusts. Once the pasties were cooked, they were wrapped tightly until lunch time and easily eaten - perhaps like a warm sandwich. Now, we eat pasties smothered in gravy, using a knife & fork. I've submitted this recipe using diced chicken. Pasties can be made with diced or ground meat, with chicken, beef, fish or vegetarian - the choice is yours. Be creative! If you ever have a chance to visit Michigan, Up North, I highly recommend stopping in one of the many pasty shops to try the real thing! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this recipe.

      This was wonderful and great to have in the freezer for a quick meal. I made as written only I didn't use the rutabaga because I didn't have one. Definately a keeper and one that I will use again. Thank you for posting. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Jan-June 2013 tag game.

      A to-die-for pasty recipe! Love it! I used Shortcrust Pastry and they worked very well together. Going straight into my Best of 2010 cookbook. Thanks, QB! Made for my PAC co-host!

      Well, I took a little liberty with this recipe in that, while only making half of it, I substituted diced yam for the rutabaga & served the finished pasties, not with gravy, but with a choice of some homemade applesauce or my own cranberry sauce! VERY, VERY TASTY PASTY & a definite recipe keeper! Thanks for sharing it, QB!
