    I thought these pasties were Fabulous! I live downstate MI and can only find some frozen pasties... nothing like homemade. These were very close to the homemade ones I had in the UP and much faster to make than to drive to UP to get them... lol. Would definitely make these again. One thing I noticed was there were no directions on amt of salt and pepper. I know everyone seasons differently, but a starting point would have been good. I used about 1/2 tsp kosher salt and 3/4 tsp fresh ground pepper. YUK on the ketchup. I only use beef gravy or nothing.

    Generally very good and true to an authentic UP pasty. However, I took off a star for the carrot. Carrots never belong in a pasty. Ever.

    I love pasties and have them often since it's an ethnic thing. I'm from the Iron Range in Minnesota. One thing I add is a little shredded cabbage for moisture and flavor. Also since I hate making the dough I use refrigerator pie dough it is so easy.

    This was fabulous...my sister has lived in the UP for 40 years...VERY traditional. I really liked the crust. The old time recipes call for suet which is not always easy to find. Didn't change a thing, HUGE hit!! Thank you!

    Chef#759998, I am from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and couldn't agree with you more on the NO carrots, yes to rutabaga and yes to the Michigan white potatoes !!!!!! The only reason I gave this a 4 star and not 5 is that I wasn't completely thrilled with the crust. It could just be that it is so humid out here on the East Coast that it didn't come out right. Cook On Everyone!!

    It's a good thing you added rutabaga or else it would NOT have been a true Michigan pastie! Also the ketchup (some recipes call for gravy, yuck! is correct. I make these quite often, I've never added parsley, but I don't think that would make much of a difference, I also make a whole pie and slice it, not individual ones, either way as long as you have the rutabaga (not carrots its great. One last thing, the Michigan white potato's work much better than the russets, the russets get too starcy and fall apart.
