If you're going to start exploring British fare, then look to one of our favorite UK chefs, Jamie Oliver, for modern and healthier takes on classic British dishes. At the top of my baking list is a British staple, the Cornish pasty, which is similar in flavor to the American pot pie, except a dish is not required.
Pasties are often served as a main dish, but I opted to make them as the perfect appetizer, so I cut the pastry smaller to make a perfect hand-held starter. You could experiment with other meat and vegetables depending on what is season. While the traditional Cornish pasty is a flaky half-circle of crust stuffed with beef, potatoes, yellow turnips, and onion, this recipe is a lighter with chicken, butternut squash, and carrots.
Can't visit the British Isles? Don't worry. Just bring them to you with this easy and comforting recipe.
