    " It was excellent "

    Have made patties many times before. These turned out great with some changes. Instead of curry in the curst, I used 1 tsp turmeric and used 1/2 cup shortening instead of half margarine. For the filling, I added a generous portion of minced garlic , cut the salt in half and added my favorite Jamaican hot sauce because we like them spicy. The end result was as good as any I've ever had the 10 times I've been to Jamaica.

    These took over an hour just to prepare, then another 30 min to cook and results were just OK. Curry is the dominating flavor, not Jerk. For me, they we're worth the effort.

    I loved these - made a set for watching the Grey Cup game this evening. Kids weren't so keen on them but not because of the flavour, they just don't like crust. They ate all the filling and left the crusts. Still, gets my five!

    the meat filling was a little dry, the pastry was more like pie crust.
    next time i will add a little more broth and i will also alter my pastry to tast like the real patties we get from tower isles.but in all, not bad! my family enjoyed them.

    These look AMAZING! and not too hard. Did you reallay sit the pastry aside while you made the filling? I am surprised that the pastry didn't get to warm. Especially since you put warm filling in?
