For pasties, make a 123 pastry dough, rollout, and cut it into a ten inch round. Peel and dice rutagga and potatoes and saute in butter until almost tender. Add chopped onion and season with salt, pepper, and a little garlic. Brown ground beef and add to the veggies. Roll a snake of the remaining pastry dough and place accross teh pastry round to act as a divider. Place a half-cup of this mixture onto one side of the pastry, on the larger side of the divider. Place blueberry or other pie filling on the other side of the divider. Fold the round over top of the fillings and roll the edges back toward teh center to make a half-circle. Brush with egg-wash. Bake at 370' F. for 40 minutes. Remove and put in the fridge. Wrap in plastic wrap when cold.
This is what miners used to eat. The dough "handle" gave them something to hang onto with dirty hands so that the main pasty remained clean. The crust handle was then discarded.
It's good food cold. It's better food hot, with gravy over top.
I would think you coulod go non-traditional, and put pulled pork in it, or anything you wanted.
