Muldoons Pasties - Michigan
In 1864 Finnish immigrants came to work in the Copper Country of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Pasties were the perfect hearty meal for the miners made with potatoes, meat, vegetables and whatever was left from the evening meal and baked in a crust. The wives would put the pasty in the miners pockets and it would still be warm at lunch time.
In 1989, Dale and Sally Beckwith opened a pasty shop to share the recipe that was a part of their family’s heritage.
Whenever we are traveling we like to try whatever food is native to that area. The pastry was flaky and the gravy amazing.
