Ooooh! You guys are so creative. This should be fun. I've been missing the annual Manitoulin trek, too. While I can't say that idea of a mushy pea pie sends me into raptures, I'm looking forward to hearing more as I do love savory pastries!
I'll have to check what might be available from bakeries in my area.
I have been hoarding one last Pastel de Carne (meat pie) in my freezer from Portos, a local Cuban bakery. I purchased a small stash from them back at the beginning of the pandemic.
Photo and description from their website: A light and flaky puff pastry filled with picadillo (ground beef, onions, peppers, and Spanish seasonings).
In honor of this thread, maybe I'll place another order and get some of their chicken empanadas while I'm at it!
