... have a good pasty recipe(s) for the egg?  Anyone else too, it's just
that only Sconnies and Yoopers seem to know the difference between a
pasty (meat pie) and pasties (something found at a burlesque).

    Can't think of many foods that wouldn't benefit from a bit-o-smoke flavor!

    I'm not a Yooper, was born in the lower peninsula, live in North Carolina, now, but I love the UP, especially the Keweenaw.  I've eaten many a pasty up there, but Toni's Country Kitchen in Laurium ruined me for anything else.  Gosh, those things were good!!!  I don't know what makes them so much better, but they sure are.  I can't picture a smoky-tasting pasty, but it might be good.  I can't think you'd need a different recipe for the Egg.  Just try a "regular" recipe.  I've collected many from the Web, but I've never gotten around to trying to make one.  I somehow have the feeling that making really good pastry is an art that takes a while to master, and it sounds like a lot of trouble if it doesn't turn out well.  If you try one, I hope you post the results!

    'cept pastys are an English thing. Yoopers and Sconnies are Michigan UP and Wisconsinites respectively

  • Typically, they are Cornish, so yes they are an English thing too. I would bet the Scott's and Finn's would have something to say about this. I'm going to try a recipe from the Mineral Point, WI region, but most recipes are roughly the same. Just don't leave out the rutabaga's.

  • I prefer the tatties. Just keep away from the haggis.

    haggis, tatties, and neeps make for a good burns night provided there is plenty mccallans to pour over the haggis and the immortal memory isn't too serious
