Herbed Pasties Recipe

My husband likes to eat whatever I cook, but he really looks forward to these herbed meat pies. We eat them as sandwiches or on a plate smothered with brown gravy.—Jean Kitchen, Monroe, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 packages (11 ounces each) pie crust mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

Directions

  • 1. In a skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain well. Dissolve bouillon in water; stir into meat mixture. Add the cheddar cheese, mushrooms, celery, Parmesan cheese and seasonings; mix well.
  • 2. Prepare pie crusts according to package directions. Divide dough into four portions. On a floured surface, roll each into a 14-in. square. Cut each into four 7-in. squares. Place a scant 1/2 cup meat mixture in the center of each square. Moisten edges of pastry with water and fold over filling, forming a triangle. Press edges with a fork to seal. Make a 1-in. slit in the top of each triangle.
  • 3. Place on two ungreased baking sheets. Beat egg and water; brush over pastry. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 16 servings.
