Back in the 60's I lived in The Upper Peninsula of Michigan one of the things we ate there was a "Pasty", I actually lived in\near Calumet, Michigan this part of Michigan is considered "Copper Country". I remember eating this little tasty and handy dish something I will always remember.

I am thinking about making this for dinner soon.

Here is an except from wikipedia

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In some of these areas, pasties are a significant tourist attraction, including an annual Pasty Fest in Calumet, Michigan in early July. Pasties in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan have a particularly unusual history, as a small influx of Finnish immigrants followed the Cornish miners in 1864. These Finns (and many other ethnic groups) adopted the pasty for use in the Copper Country copper mines. About 30 years later, a much larger flood of Finnish immigrants found their countrymen baking pasties. The pasty has become strongly associated with Finnish culture in this area, and in the culturally similar Iron Range in northern Minnesota.
