For the pastry

400g/12 oz plain flour
100g/3 oz margarine
100g/3 oz beef dripping
Water to mix
Salt

Mix the dripping and margarine together.
Sift the flour and salt.
Rub the fat into the flour with your fingers, adding just enough water to make a stiff dough.
Divide into four and roll into large ovals.
Leave to rest.

Or you can use frozen puff pastry if you like that better.

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6

The filling

500g / 1 lb rump or topside beef
75g/3 oz finely chopped beef suet
2 finely chopped medium onions
Salt & black peppper

Beat the steak out thin and cut roughly into 1 cm / 1/2 inch pieces. (If you are using a cheaper cut of meat, mince it).
Put the meat into a bowl and mix with the onions, suet and seasoning. divide into four.
Cover half of each pastry oval with the meat mixture leaving space at the edges for sealing.
Wet the edges of the pastry, fold over and crimp together.
Make a hole in the top to let the steam out.
Bake on a greased baking sheet for about 45 min.

Eat hot or cold

By the way - Cornish Pasties are made the same way, but they have potatoe added to the meat mixture.

Enjoy :D

Not exactly authentic but I make the filling by throughly mixing equal quantities of mince and sausagemeat. Then adding finely chopped onions and a grated potato.

Bridies TAKE preference over PROPER pasties!
I was making Teddy Oggies last week in Caithness for the locals and although the recipe looks similar I wil defend a PROPER oggie to the death.

Now there's a challenge, you can bake me a Bridie an' I will bake you an' Oggie and lets see which is best.

He he, just out of interest I added the ingredients in to the weight watchers site, basically if you have 1 bridie you aint getting owt else for the day lol


but worth it :lol:



Hing on there folks, just noticed Lizz's post, if you are having a bake off I feel it is only fair for me to be official taste tester, but will have to say you will have to go a long way to better one of her Oggies

Changi - I wish to throw down the gauntlet & challenge you for the post of official taste tester. I feel that I am suitably qualified for the position (in that I am a greedy sod who enjoys his grub) and feel it quite unfair that you promote yourself unchallenged!

There, said it :lol:!

Clear off, you gannets, you have vested interests, I should be the official Oggy / Bridie taster, as I have epicurian tastes, and I would be impartial honest!!!! And Justine you take a couple of practice runs and then let us know when your ready to win errr, take part [lol]

My stomach is cast iron...


Have you seen his belly???? , its so full of Galaxy chocolate, he cannot roll over in bed, allegedly

Full of Galaxy - no, full of my OH's roast beef at the mo! And the rumors that I can't roll over in bed are entirely fictitious - I'm just too LAZY to roll over in bed! [lol] (BTW Golach, you've never seen my belly either!)

justine
24-Mar-08, 19:11

Right folks, its about time we got this thread back to some semblance of order.


Can all those folks that jumped onto MY bandwagon please jump back off - afore I push you.

I was here first, no one was offering to be taste tester till I mentioned it, so please go away and find your own thread to taste test.

Thank you very much.


PS I've seen bobs belly and it certainly don't need any of MY bridies or MY oggies

justine
25-Mar-08, 00:11
Hey madam,:cool: if we keep that up we wont be baking any for you to taste...

But i have to admit your right, bob cant get an oggie or bridie into that cast iron belly, so you will have to be taster,,,
