Mr. Charlie, what are the ingredients in a breakfast pasty? No information on the order page just that there are breakast pasties for purchase. I informed friends of mine of them but couldn't answer their question about what's inside. I think I might know since it's called "breakfast", but not sure..... Thank you.....FJL

FJL (Langoman)I did a google for breakfast pasty:

Breakfast Pasty
Yield: 35 servings

Recipe courtesy of Deb Kahn, Dietary Director -Eveleth Health Services Park Nursing Home, MN


2 lb 6 oz browned ground sausage
1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
1 1/2 lb shredded cheddar cheese
1 3 lb bag of frozen shredded hash browns
21 Eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp dry mustard
2 quarts milk Crust:
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups lard
1 1/2 cups ice water

Blend crust ingredients together and knead until smooth. Divide dough in half. Roll out first half large enough to fit 10X15 _ pan.
Place rolled dough in greased pan, press up the sides of the pan. Place a layer of shredded frozen hash browns on top of crust.
Next mix the ground sausage and onion and place on top of hash browns. Place a layer of cheese over meat/onion mixture. Beat eggs, milk and dry mustard together and pour over top of layers. Roll remaining crust and place on top. Seal and tuck edges into pan. Make 6-8 slits with knife in top crust. Bake at 375°F for 30 minutes. Brush top with butter, rotate pan and continue baking another 30 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean or an internal temperature reaches 165°. Cut into 2X2 squares. Serve hot.

FJL, now that recipe makes 35 servings. What time is breakfast tomorrow?

By maija in Commerce Township (Maija) on Thursday, December 20, 2007 - 03:24 pm:

I don't think that's the recipe for the Hut's breakfast pasties. I think someone who got them said ham, potatoes, two cheeses.... Onion? I don't know, but they'd be better with onion! Good crust they said. The hut pasties tend to be with diced potatoes.

Oh what a day for a day bird... My son is enroute from Houghton to mid-Michigan for Christmas break. Between the Mackinac Bridge and Gaylord, he hit a deer. The good news is that no one was hurt. I had to track down what to do about a car-deer accident in Michigan. Our 911 said to have him call 911 from his cell phone, and it would bounce from the nearest cell tower to the nearest 911 post. The Michigan State Police came from Cheboygen and gave him a state police report number, promptly. So far, I know that the left headlight assembly panel is damaged, as is the left front quarter panel, and the driver's door. It appears that the grill and radiator are in tact, so it seems to be drivable. I told him to stop at the Walmart in Gaylord to buy a gallon of antifreeze, since it is dark and night, and there are not many places to buy antifreeze near I-75 that are open at night. Then, he managed to lock his door key in the car (it had fallen off his key ring onto the car seat) when he stopped to eat. He thought he had a door key in his wallet, but he didn't. This hasn't been his night. Usually he drives in a caravan with other kids, but the other guy still had not packed yet, and my son wanted to leave so he could get home earlier. I'm really glad he left then, and not later. But now, the others are not far behind him...

Anyway, another reminder to watch out for the wildlife on the road, especially at night. The Gaylord area has been fairly notorious for deer on I-75. But, then the UP has its fair share, too.

By David Hiltunen (Davidcorrytontn) on Thursday, December 20, 2007 - 09:52 pm:

Marianne,Let us know when he makes it in safe. You said that you were glad he left then and not later.Maybe the deer would not of been there later,as it was there then.Wishing him luck the rest of the way.

Thank you, David H. He got in just before 11, with no more problems. I'm really thankful that my son is safe. The car can be fixed or replaced.

By tom ghering (Tomgheringtcmi) on Thursday, December 20, 2007 - 11:35 pm:

Marianne, Be extra thankful that your son didn't hit an Elk! There have been several hit in tha area.

By maija in Commerce Township (Maija) on Friday, December 21, 2007 - 09:00 am:

WOW--so scary. Thank goodness Marianne's son wasn't hurt seriously.

I wonder what happens to the deer to make them try to cross I75. I used to travel two or three times a winter to visit my parents. One year, I stopped counting at 23 deer on the shoulder of I75. Other years, I didn't see any.

By tom ghering (Tomgheringtcmi) on Friday, December 21, 2007 - 02:46 pm:

To get to the other side.

By David Hiltunen (Davidcorrytontn) on Friday, December 21, 2007 - 03:13 pm:

Why do the deer go onto I-75 ? This might be the answer to a question I have always wondered about, which is... What happens to all the rubber that wears off the tires as vehicles zoom along on I 75 ?? You never see it piled up along side of the road. Maybe the deer come to chew it like bubble gum and give it to their young as treats, or fill in the cracks in their hoof's?

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Friday, December 21, 2007 - 04:09 pm:

I think the deer are by the roads looking for salt to eat.

By David Soumis (Davesou) on Friday, December 21, 2007 - 05:01 pm:

no...they're just like chickens...trying to get to the other side...
you know how grass is always greener on the other side of the hill?
