I made some for a client last year. It's not really "my" recipe; more of a mix'n'match of other peoples , but it worked OK.
Only thing is, you'll have to bug me for it because I think I left it in my kitchen!!

Debbie, are you attempting to recreate the beef patties from a particular restaurant or are you trying to duplicate the taste of a commercial supermarket brand?

Cliveb i would really appreciate it if you can post the recipe.

Scott123 we lived in NY for most of our lives and we loved the beef patties from the pizzarias so i would like to recreate something like that if you know what type i'm talking about, you are from NJ so i'm sure you probably know. bj's, costco and sams club sells a brand that is like what the pizzaria sells and we like those also.

Tower Isle makes a frozen product that is servicable, indeed. Usually, three to a box (at the retail level) and they come either hot or regular. I've never found the hot to be too hot.

I don't think they have enough filling for the pastry, however. And be careful you don't overcook them. Then, the pastry dries horribly and you really notice the lack of adequate filling.

i think this box has maybe about 10 in it. i really have to go look now so i can be sure, i havent gotten them in a while because they are a bit more expensive here in florida than what we got them for when we lived in NY.

so no recipes yet guys?
