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.

How to Make My TATER-TOT "PASTIE"

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown the meat.
    Set aside.
    Pre cook the rutabaga.
    Drain and set aside.
    Sweat the celery, onions and carrots in a skillet with a little water.. Set a side.
  2. Put all the above in a bowl,with the soup.
    Salt and pepper to your taste.
    MIX all together, with the milk.
  3. Put the above ingredients, in a baking dish.
    Heat oven to 375 F.
  4. Put frozen tater tots in rows across
    the top of the mixture,
    and bake, for about 45 minutes.
  5. Take out of oven, when done.
    Serve and enjoy.
  6. In 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.
