I usually buy the crust and stuff it with different things. I made this last night with chopped mushrooms and chopped carrot.
Here is how I prepared it. I heated up about a tbs of olive oil, , then added half an onion, then two crushed garlics, then persil, then the mushrooms , then added half a glass of white wine, then let to simmer, then added the carrots and vegetable stock(same amount as wine)Simmer, then added four tbs of sour cream, then thicken with maizena, added a few drizzles of tabaso, worshester sauce and then let to cool down, then spooned into the already prepared crusts, then put in the oven for 10 mins. they are lovely, you can stuff them with anything you like, they compliment a lot of meals Michelemarie. Have a go at them. There are ways to prepare the crusts, but I am too lazy to do that, youcan buy some pastry ready to go and all you will need is the pastry cutters.
