1 1/2 cups carrots, chopped
1 Tbsp. water
4 Tbsp. butter or margarine
2 chicken bouillon cubes
4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2-1 lb. ground beef, turkey or chicken, cooked
salt and pepper (to taste)

Use leftover pie crust or use the following recipe:

1 cup shortening
1/4 tsp. salt
3 cups flour
6 Tbsp. water

In a saucepan, simmer the carrots in the water, butter, and chicken bouillon cubes. Add potatoes, onion, meat and salt and pepper. Divide into fourths. Mix dough ingredients and roll into four 10- inch circles. Put the meat mixture on one side of the dough. Fold the other half of the dough over and seal with fingers or a fork. Bake 1 hour at 375°. Serves 4-6.
You can also add other vegetables. This is a good way to use those leftovers, so be creative!

    What? No gravy to go over those hot and wonderful pasties? I grew up with my Mom making this recipe a few days after we enjoyed roast beef and gravy for Sunday supper after church. Adding beef or brown gravy to this recipe is like stepping in heaven!!!! Try it, you’ll looove it!

    Talk about this quietly. my two sons think I invented this dish just for them. Actually I had never heard of pasties until years after I made them out of desperation of what to do with a tough inedible roast.
    I just ground up the cooked roast with some onions.
    Made pie crust and using a pot lid to cut out the circles added about a tbsp of filling folded them over and baked them.
    Don had just gone back to work after a lay off of about a year so money was tight and I didn’t want to toss the roast. I didn’t add vegetables except the onion but over the years I have been experimenting.
    We use these as finger food suppers and snacks in the car.
    I agree gravy goes really well with them.

      It is amazing what you can do with any dough, meat and veggies. We have a recipe in the book called cheeseburger rolls. Originally I called them cabbage rolls but since they didn’t have cabbage in them we had to change the name. The original was made with bread dough rolled out and some hamburger and cabbage place in the center, sealed and baked. I don’t like cabbage so I made mine with hamburger and cheese in them.
      The sky is the limit for this kind of recipe.
