Recipe #2 Mushroom Pasties

2 cans of junky but tasty crescent rolls (the recipe called for puff pastry but I am lazy)
1 egg beaten

1 Onion, chopped
1 carrot, grated
1 big potato, grated
about 2 cups of sliced mushrooms (I used a mix of oyster, shiitake and regular)
2 tbsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. soy sauce - I used light because we were out of regular
1 squirt of ketchup
1/4 cup cooking wine or sherry
salt and peps
thyme to taste

Find and lightly oil a cookie sheet. Open 1 can of 8 cressies and separate the triangles on to the cookie sheet - you might flatten them a bit to make them bigger. Set aside.
Saute the carrot, onion and potato together in some oil for about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and liquids. Cook until squishy-ish. Remove from heat.

Spoon some of the veggieliciousness onto each cressie (or puffed pastry lovely) then put another flattened a bit cressie on top (or, fold over your Martha Stewart puff pastry) and crimp the sides with a fork. Brush the tops with beaten egg. Bake at 350 for 11-15 minutes - until they look pretty and golden on top.

Would I make them again? Absolutely. These will join my repertoire of favorite things. Even Carnivorouspouse thought they were fantastic.


  1. I make pasties for my DH to take hunting. Makes a handy lunch while sitting in a tree stand! I use the ready made pie crust dough as he likes that best.

  2. Veggies wrapped in crescent rolls, what's not to love?!?! Going to have to try this one! Love your new blog :)
