A fun Halloween dinner idea that can also be enjoyed any time of year, Beef and Potato Cornish Pasties (Hand Pies).


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 cup butternut squash, diced
  • 1 medium Idaho Russet Potato, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten and mixed with a splash of water for eggwash


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Dust lightly with cornmeal.
  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add yellow onions and flour, saute for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add in the ground beef and brown, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the butternut squash and diced potatoes, stirring and cook for 5 - 10 minutes. Season with the Worcestershire sauce, nutmeg, salt, and beef broth, mixing well. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook for 15 - 20 minutes, with the lid askew, cooking until most of the broth is cooked down and vegetables are tender.
  5. On a lightly flour-dusted surface, roll out the frozen puff pastry sheets one at a time until each sheet is slightly thinner than a 1/4 inch thick. Cut each sheet into 4 squares. Fill each square with 1/4 cup of beef and potato filling, leaving 1/4 inch border, crimp edges to seal. Brush the top of the pasties with the beaten egg wash and dust the tops lightly with cornmeal.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven until the puff pastry is golden brown. Serve immediately.


You can substitute the butternut squash for 1/2 cup of frozen peas and 1/2 cup diced carrots if preferred.
