I am proud to say that I am a born and raised Yooper, and as such, grew up on these wonderful all in one meals, at least twice a week for 15 years of my life!!! They freeze wonderfully and make for a great "lunchbox meal", as you just remove it, and throw it in the microwave for a couple of minutes, and you have yourself a wonderul satisfying and more importantly, delicious meal in the perfect serving portion!!!

How to Make Traditional Yooper Pasties

Step-by-Step

  1. 1.In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water until mixture forms a ball. Shape into a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. 3.In a large bowl, combine meat, potatoes, onion, rutabaga and chopped carrots. Season with salt and pepper. Divide dough into six pieces, and shape into balls. On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a 6 inch round. Place approximately 1 cup filling on one half of each. Dot each with 1 tablespoon margarine. Draw the other half of the pastry over the filling. Crimp edges to seal in filling. Prick with a fork and place on prepared baking sheet.
  4. 4.Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes - 1 hour, or until crust is a gorgeous golden brown. To achieve the perfect golden brown color, rub each pasty with just a little bit of milk.
