Directions:
Make sure the ground chuck is drained well. Thaw the vegetables if they are frozen. Preheat over to 350. Mix 1/2 lb of the ground chuck and the potatoes together. Add the vegetables, onions, salt and pepper if desired. Place the mixture on 1/2 of one of the pie crusts. Fold the other half of the piece crust over the mixture and roll the edges of the piece crust together. Take a fork and poke holes in the top of the crust and place it on a cookie sheet. Repeat this step until you have used all 10 pie crusts. Bake in the center of the oven for 45 minutes to an hour (depending on thickness of the pasty).

I freeze the extra pasties. They make great snacks and lunches. I have also used roast beef instead of the ground chuck. You can leave the skin on the potatoes if you'd like.
