My TATER-TOT "PASTIE"

I love MICH.FINNISH PASTIES
(say pastees) and
I also like TATER TOTS.
I combined the two and made a wonderful dinner dish combination.
I named it "TATER-TOT PASTIE."
Naturally you have to have rutabagas!!!
Actually it turned out quite well....
Hopefully this might wet your appetite.
I await your comments.

6In upper Mi. they sell a PASTIE SAUCE..to die for.
I Can't find it any where else.
I did purchase this bottle of a special ketchup, in Spokane, WA.
It has balsamic vinegar as one of the ingredients.
This tastes close to the real pastie sauce!...
Goes great with this dish.
It would be good with most any thing.
I paid only a $1.25 ..what a deal!!
Think I will go back and buy a couple more.
