A U.P. Specialty Mar 31, 2008
Want a delicious and filling meal while you're in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan? Stop by Lawry's Pasty Shop! It's a small, family-owned store with roots going back 60 years in the pasty making business.

Just to clarify: what is a pasty?

"It is a baked savoury pastry case traditionally filled with diced meat, sliced potato and onion. The ingredients are uncooked before being placed in the unbaked pastry case. Traditionally, pasties have a semicircular shape, achieved by folding a circular pastry sheet over the filling. One edge is crimped to form a seal." (thank you Wikipedia)

Coming from a born and raised yooper, I feel they should be eaten smothered in ketchup, but feel free to enjoy them as you like (even with gravy). Voted the Area's Best Pasty two years in a row, it's the place to get one! Even Arnold Schwarzenegger has tried one of these delicious meals.

If you're unable to visit the area and still want to try one, they can ship an order to you! Ask about it!

The pasty (pronounced "PAS-ti" not "payst-EE" for you non-yoopers) was invented to be eaten as a hot meal in the iron ore mines of Upper Michigan without using both hands and could be kept in a paper wrapper so workers would not get ore dirt on their delicious complete meal.
