Making Pasties

What is a Pasty? Pasty is pronounced, "pass-tee" and was brought to the Upper Peninsula by the wives of the Cornish Miners in the early 1850's. The traditional pasty had beef, potatoes, onion, carrots, and rutabaga baked inside a golden crust; a filling meal for the men who worked in the copper and iron mines.

Using a pasty recipe that has been in the family for many years, the Pasty Oven offers a variety of delicious pasties, perfectly seasoned, and wrapped in a thin buttery crust. We use all fresh ingredients including lean beef & pork and real Wisconsin cheese. We do not use any artificial flavoring or preservatives. Our tender crust is made with all vegetable shortening; no lard is used in our pastys.
