County Cork Cornish Pasties


  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon bacon grease
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  6. Add the salt and pepper.
  7. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
  8. Roll the pie crust into individual 8- to 9-inch circles.
  9. Place 1 cup of the meat and potato mixture on half of each circle, fold over, and press the edges to seal.
  10. Beat together the egg and milk and brush over the pasties.
  11. Place on a baking sheet.
  12. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 to 50 minutes or until light brown.
