I'm getting into that holiday spirit...Banana loafs, Pumpkin Loafs, Fudge. All those things I can stick in a basket and give to friends...along with sparkling apple juice.
The holidays are coming....get in the spirit
No bah humbugs please
I tried to post this recipe earlier this evening, but it doesn't seem it made it onto the forum . . . My "newness" to this forum stuff is really showing! Just joined this week . . . I'm an Idahoan transplanted to Arizona via several other states.
My recipe is for old fashioned Miners' Pasties (say: pass-tees)
They originated in Scotland, I was told.
Miners carried them in their lunch buckets to work.
This is a basic recipe for a Pastie - a meat pie:
Buy store-made pie shell dough or make your own. One pie shell makes one Miner's Pastie.
Mix together in equal parts: Raw lean ground beef, chopped red onion, chopped carrots, chopped potato. Salt/pepper to taste.
Spoon mixture onto 1/2 the pie shell, so you can fold it over and seal the edges. Brush milk onto the outside, after it's folded closed and sealed at the edges. Cut 2 or 3 slits into the top of the pie shell.
Bake at 350 degrees for an hour.
Serve with brown gravy or catsup. (Traditionally, it's just served plain)
Lots of folks serve it with their favorite homemade soup on the side.
