The crust is the thing. My father, gone 25 years, found from living in the UP that real home made pasties were often leftovers from supper the night before put into a shell and baked in the morning for a relatively hot meal of whatever was on hand. Hence, recipe???? what recipe??? I find the variations to be great and use the wonderful shell to fill with all kinds of things, like leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. I use a little gravy inside to keep them nice and moist. My grandkids will eat vegetables if inside a pasty so in they go. I also sometimes use Jeruselum Artichokes for a bit of smokey taste in place of part of the potatoes. We have vegetarian friends who add cream cheese to a veggie mix and serve with sour cream and others who claim it is not the same without gravy covering the whole thing. Me, I say whatever you want inside is fine, just DON'T MESS WITH THE CRUST!
