DIRECTIONS

  • Cover meat with water or broth; add seasonings to taste and cook slowly for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
  • Cook potatoes until tender.
  • Drain; add butter, salt and pepper to taste, parsley and onion.
  • Mix well.
  • Beat eggs; add to potatoes and beat mixture lightly.
  • Let stand until pastry is made.
  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt together.
  • Cut in the 4 tablespoons shortening or butter and add water, using only enough to hold dough together.
  • Roll thinly on a floured board and cut into 10" circles (you can use a dinner plate as a guide).
  • Spread with some of the potato mixture; fold dough to form a semi-circle, pressing edges together with the prongs of the fork.
  • Place on top of the hot meat and broth, cover pot tightly and simmer about 25 minutes.
  • While these are cooking, make a sauce of butter or bacon drippings; add bread cubes and brown. Stir in milk.
