This version of a traditional English pasty is perfect for a picnic or packed lunch, or with a simple salad.
• If time is short, you can use 8 sheets ready-made shortcrust pastry instead of making your own.
• You can add extra flavour to the filling by blending ½ teaspoon hot English mustard with the stock.
• You could use diced carrot or turnip in the filling.
• Pasties will freeze well for up to 2 months.
Something else. I used dried parsley, swede and butternut pumpkin along with the other ingredients. I also used puff pastry. These were yummo. - 11 Dec 2010
