It is a fact that within the USA there are locations that have a type of person that we give a funny name to. We have such a term here in Michigan.
Our state is made up of two peninsulas, an upper and a lower. And we have a term for those guys 'up north' we call em Yoopers. and they have all kinds of facts and stereo types about them.
One fact about them is a style of food that was made popular years ago when the cooper mines were in operation. This food is called a pasty and they are this really delicious bread pie you can hold in your hand and enjoy--sorta like a sandwich.
My husbands family are these such people and we do love your pasty's!
So last week while at lunch at my in-laws house, my brood was treated to a very sneaky sorta pasty--not a real pasty but a knock off that is still quite delicious! and I am going to share this simple treat with you! :o)
first we gather our ingredients:
I began frying the beef a bit, drained off some of the fat then added the onion and cooked until the beef is browned.
place them on an ungreesed cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for about 14 minutes. Keep an eye on them cause ovens vary. you are looking for the dough to brown because the meat inside is already cooked--and cheese melts easy!
Hope you like this feast and much as we do! now go dig in!
