This is my version of an ancient Welsh recipe. I serve it with fat free gravy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sautee turkey, onions, garlic, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, chili, corn, broccoli, and peppers until turkey is no longer pink and onions are translucent.
  2. Roll out biscuits with a rolling pin until they are about 6 or 7 inches in diameter.
  3. Place a large dollop of meat filling in biscuit and fold in half into a half moon shape.
  4. Seal with water and cut steam vents into top.
  5. Brush top lightly with butter.
  6. Bake at 400 for about 15 to 20 minutes until nicely brown.

This was really tasty. I wanted to try making a pasty after I saw a pasty restaurant in Northern Minnesota. It was good with turkey. Couple things- be sure to coat pan with non-stick spray before you cook. I had a hard time getting the pasties off the pan. Also, they burned at 15 minutes so next time I will cook them for 12-13 minutes. You can dip them with anything, but they don't need it- all the spices give it a nice flavor. Eat them hot!

These pasties were great! It was an interesting flavor with the mix of spices. We had trouble rolling out the biscuits--they kept wanting to shrivel up again. We made a 3-person assembling line to roll them out, fill them, and fold and seal them. But the effort was well worth it.

The bad news, Your prep time is off. I can't chop the vegetables and roll the dough in 15 minutes. The good news is I like the canned biscuit idea; it cuts way down on cooking. My recommendation is to let your imagination go wild. Think of it as a homemade Hotpocket
