For a 'potluck' I make a few dozen bite size ones. Adding some Jamaican flavors would be easy to do.
Ah yes... I love a good Forfar Bridie although I've never made one myself.
When I travel south, I usually stop in Forfar where there is a butcher who makes most excellent ones. Your recipe sounds pretty good, though there are quite a number of variations eg. minced lamb instead of beef.
