Cooking Instructions

How to re-heat your Pastys!

“The pastys will be fully cooked so all you have to do is warm them through and enjoy!”

“Everyone’s recommendation is to bake our product in a conventional oven to get that tasty flaky crust.”

Conventional Oven

Our buttery flavored, egg-washed crust browns best in the oven.

Preheat oven to 375F. Place Pastys on cookie sheet. Monitoring with meat thermometer, bring internal temp to 160F. Or, after heating 30 minutes, cut open and feel the middle to
see how long it takes in your oven to heat thoroughly.

Or you can heat them the miners way!

First, find an old abandoned mine shaft and go down 400 feet. (A dark damp cave will do, however, watch out for hibernating bears in the winter.)

Tools Needed:

  • One long or fat round candle
  • One yellow canary
  • Two rocks with one flat side
  • One #2 flat shovel
  • Hard hat
  • Meat thermometer
  • Rain coat
  • One 8×10 sheet of tin foil
  • Illumination device(candle may be used)

Warning! If the canary goes belly up, don’t light the candle!

Heating Instructions

Place candle firmly between rocks and light. Place tinfoil on shovel. Preheat shovel until glowing red and carefully place pasty on it. Heat to an interior temperature of 160F.

Note: To heat more than one pasty, use a larger shovel.

Warning: Know your mine shaft or cave and do not light candles if methane or other flammable gases are present. Children under the age of thirty should be supervised by a responsible adult.

A final note: If you prefer this method, you have WAY too much free time!
