This is my version of an ancient Welsh recipe. I serve it with fat free gravy.
- Pillsbury Grands refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (reduced fat)
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 coarsely chopped onion
- 3 finely chopped garlic cloves
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 1⁄2 cups corn
- 1 cup finely chopped broccoli
- 1⁄2 cup finely chopped sweet red cherry peppers
- fresh coarse ground black pepper
- Sautee turkey, onions, garlic, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, chili, corn, broccoli, and peppers until turkey is no longer pink and onions are translucent.
- Roll out biscuits with a rolling pin until they are about 6 or 7 inches in diameter.
- Place a large dollop of meat filling in biscuit and fold in half into a half moon shape.
- Seal with water and cut steam vents into top.
- Brush top lightly with butter.
- 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
