For the vegetarians that want the yooper pasty delight, try this one. It's not 

[If you're wondering what a Pasty is, you've never eaten in the UP (upper 
peninsula of Michigan). I personally didn't like them, but this recipe sounds a 
bit more promising.] 

Veggie Pasty 
  The Crust: 
  a.. 2 cups flour 
  b.. 2/3 cups butter (or Crisco) 
  c.. 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  d.. 1/2 cup cold water 
  The Filling: 
  a.. 2-1/2 cups peeled, diced potatoes 
  b.. 1 cup finely diced sweet potatoes 
  c.. 1/2 tablespoon of oil or butter 
  d.. 1 clove of garlic 
  e.. 1/2 cup diced, cooked mushrooms (about 3/4 cups uncooked) 
  f.. 1-1/2 cups diced broccoli 
  g.. 1 small onion (1/2 cup chopped) 
  h.. 1 teaspoon salt 
  i.. 1/2 teaspoon season salt 
  j.. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 
  k.. 1 tablespoon of olive oil 
  l.. 4 oz. cream cheese (1/2 a package) 
  m.. 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese 
  n.. 1/4 cup of milk for moistening and sealing crust 
Cut butter into flour and salt until it forms pea-size lumps. Add cold water 
and knead until well blended. Form into 4 balls and chill in the refrigerator 
for at least one hour. Roll in to 8 inch circle. Use plenty of flour while 
rolling out. 


In a tablespoon of oil or butter sauté garlic and mushrooms. Cook mushrooms 
until soft and half the moisture is gone. 

Mix diced potatoes, sweet potatoes, cooked mushrooms, broccoli, onion, salt, 
season salt, black pepper and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large bowl. 


Put 1-1/2 cups of filling on half of the pasty crust. Cut cream cheese block 
into quarters then cut each quarter into four or five piece and scatter on top 
of the filling pile. Add a tablespoon or two shredded cheddar cheese to top of 
filling. Moisten the edges with milk or water, fold over and pinch to seal. 
Brush outside lightly with milk. Cut three or four slits on top to vent steam. 

Put on a lightly-greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes to an hour, 
or until crust is golden brown. Serve with catsup on the side.
