    JustJanS's Note:

    My mum made the best pasties on earth, but she's gone so I had to make them today from my memories. Pasties were a food we ate when we were poor, so there wasn't much meat in them compared to veg. Swede turnip is very important in pasties. Mum made her own pastry with dripping, but I don't save dripping!

      Very good and filling dish. I have to say that I did "cheat" a little on this recipe. I used diced frozen hash browns and a bag of frozen peas and carrots (well...not the whole bag). This came together very quickly. I used puff pastry and it turned out great. Made for Dec 2010 Aus/NZ Swap.

      Don't like to add carrots because it changes the taste. Love the pasties of the Upper Penninsula of Michigan. No carrots, peas, nor gravy.

      These were good, I have never made or eaten a pastie before so it was a good treat. The only change I would make next time is to add a little seasoned salt and garlic to give it a little more flavor; I didn't want to add anything the first time around to mess up the recipe and I wasn't sure how salty if any the beef stock powder would be. Made for AUS/NZ Make My Recipe Tag.
