Michigan Pasties

First Pasties. Really good! Imagine my surprise/embarrassment when I found out they are pronounced with a short, not long, A. I've been in the city too long.

Hey, big guy, there are pasties (with a long A) in Michigan also. But you probably aren't bringing Momma to the establishment. What was the name of the restaurant where you had them? I guess in other words, was it a pasty only place or just happen to have them on the menu?

The Pancake Chef, they specialized in all foods. Really good!

Chip,

When you head toward the bridge into the lower peninsula on US2, just after you leave the little town (really only 3 stores and some rental condos) of Brevort, about 13 miles further east, just before you get into St Ignace, on the right (south) side of US2 you'll see Lehto's Pasties. It's an old "converted Dairy Queen style building with a gravel parking lot. BEST PASTIES IN THE UP !!! The address is 1983 US-2, St Ignace, MI and they are open from 10AM to 8PM every day but Sunday which is 10am-6pm. They make them daily and when they sell out, they close the doors, so depending on what time you go through, you may or may not get to sample the bestest......

They sell them "ready to eat, ready to cook or frozen" and yes, they sell them all, every day.... We've been known to drive the 75 miles just to buy a couple to bring home for the next day.....

http://www.lehtospasties.com/

As an observation, ALL pasties are good, it's just that some are "gooder" than others...... Try Lehto's, you'll very likely agree.....

Safe travels,

Safe travels,
Now I can't wait to try them. I saw it on my way in and wondered about them. Now I know. Thanks.

Lehto's was all that and much more. So glad we took the tie to go. I highly recommend them if you are in the area. Also went to Whitefish Point and the Shipwreck museum. Wow is all I can say! I wonder if we were anywhere close to JRTJH (John)?

About 50 miles directly south on I-75. I thought Lehto's would be a hit for you. That "looks like sausage gravy" in the picture you posted was kind of a "shock".... No "real Yupper" would ever put sausage gravy on a pasty ROFL.....

Okay - being a deprived individual that has never been to Michigan, what is a Pasty? In CTBruce's photo, it looks like a sort of meat pot pie? Hope to make it to that part of the world next year but until then?

It's a Cornish meat pie, usually made with diced (not ground) beef, potatoes, rutabaga, onion, spices and baked until "golden brown". Often served "plain" some prefer catsup, others like a rich brown gravy. I like mine with a good 1/4 sliced dill pickle and chocolate milk.
