1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 1/2 lbs. ground pork
1 cup onions, chopped
1 cup green onions, chopped
2 Tblsp. parsley, minced
2 Tblsp. garlic puree
1 Tblsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. red pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs

2 cups self-rising flour, sifted
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, beaten


Cook meat and seasoning over medium heat until mat is browned. Stir bread crumbs over the meat mixture. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Drain mixture in colander and set aside.

Sift flour into a medium bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and egg. Stir with fork until ingredients are moistened. Shape dough into a ball and divide into 3 balls. Roll 1/3 of dough out on a lightly floured cloth to about 1/8 inch thickness. Cut dough into 5 1/2 inch circles, using a saucer as a cutting guide. Place cut dough on a lightly greased baking sheet.

Place a large spoonful of meat filling on one side of each pastry round. Moisten edges of rounds with a small amount of water. Fold pastry over to cover filling. Seal edges using a fork dipped in water. Prick pastry gently with a fork. Deep fry in hot oil (350 degrees) until golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Serve warm.

May be frozen uncooked in ziploc bags. Cook frozen.
