Irish Pub Pasties

Irish Pub Pasties | Vegetarian | Healthy Food | St. Patrick's Day Food Ideas | Pary Food Ideas | Easy Pastry Recipes | Traditional Irish Pasties | Pasty RecipeWe have a great little Irish pub in my town called The Celtic Ray, and as St. Patrick’s Day approaches I thought it might be fun to come up with my own interpretation of one of my favorite items on their menu–the Pub Pasty (pronounced PAH-STEE).  For those of you not familiar with this yummy little treat, a pasty is a hand-held pie filled with savory meat or vegetables & spices.

The traditional pub version is usually dipped in batter, then deep fried.  My home version uses ready-made rolled pie crusts which makes them super easy (and a lot less messy!)  They were an across-the-board hit with the whole family, though Husband did wish his had a little meat in it.  Next time I will definitely add some ground beef, at least to his!  As an added bonus, this recipe uses many of the same ingredients as this Cream of Cabbage Soup I posted a few weeks ago, which will make for an easy and delicious St. Paddy’s meal.

5.  To make pasties, place one wedge of crust on parchment-paper covered cookie sheet.  Place a scoop of the veggie mixture on center of wedge, then cover with a second wedge.  Press edges with a fork to seal, then brush with egg & water mixture.  Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

    Have you considered making a cook book or party book? All of your recipes are amazing, and your crafts are adorable…I would totally buy one of your books with a step by step guide to parties. Just like the recent fish fry article you wrote. Just a thought. Thanks for the recipe, I will try this tomorrow!

    would these freeze? If so, should I thaw before baking or add minutes to the baking time for frozen pasties.

    Pasties are actually cornish. They originated in Cornwall, England, and certainly were never meant to be deep fried. That pub has done a disservice to a delicious English delicacy and although I am pleased you enjoyed what you think is a pasty, I have a true cornish recipe if you are interested. Also, the history of the cornish pasty is fascinating too, it even has a jingle, ” if you want something hot and nasty, get yourself a cornish pasty” (pasty rhymes with nasty) ☺

    I made these tonight and I did add meat. They are very tasty but I feel like I would like a little onion gravy drizzled over the top or maybe for dipping. It’s a lit of pie crust and seemed a little dry. They were yummy, will make again.
