Troll Pie
« on: December 02, 2007, 06:00:37 PM »
We make this dish up at the cabin in the U.P. generally a couple times during deer season.  The U.P. Yoopers are well known for their Pasties. Little self contained meat pies. Well, we are only wanna-be yoopers as we were not born there. We dont feel its right to call our creations pasties even though they have many of the same ingredients. Besides, were lazy sometimes and sometimes buy pre-made pie crusts to make them rather then rolling out the dough.

Since one of the names Yoopers call those of us that live under the bridge is a troll, we decided to call these Troll Pies.  :)

We make up two or three or four or five at a time and usually eat one fresh and refrigerate or freeze the others and heat a slice at a time.  The pictured pie is one that we had refrigerated. We like to eat them with a mushroom gravy.  The Troll pie is made with potatoes, carrots, rutabaga, onion and venison burger. Pete and I ate two of them in two days.  ;D

That does look good  We do something like that with left over stew. Just roll out some biscket dough for the top and bottom crust add 3 tbl spoons of desolved corn starch to the stew and cut the big stuff in the stew up like boiled eggs or hunks of turnip or taters. Put the top on it and bake it till the top turns light brown let it cool and that stuffs good. I like the pork and chicken the beef dont thrill me but i aint much on beef stew any way

Their getting close. Ready for the oven.

 



Here's the simple recipe as of how we did it today.

1 rutabaga, mebby 5" diameter
6 medium sized potatoes
2 large carrots.
2 Lbs ground beef or venison
2 large onions
2 cans of muchrooms
pepper, garlic powder

3 frozen pie crusts or your favorite pie crust recipe. (we were going to use four today, but there was not enough filling on completion)

Chop the onions coarsely and brown with with ground beef until ground beef is just cooked in a very large skillet.
Add Diced rutabaga first and cook for about 5 minutes, then add potatoes, carrots and the two cans of mushrooms. Season with pepper and Garlic Powder to taste. Some like salt, but I don't cook with salt as a rule.

Cover to cook, but uncovering and stirring frequently.  Once the rutabaga is done, which takes the longest, remove from heat. Fill your pie crusts to slightly overfull, then place the crust top on your pies. Bake in a 350 oven until crust is brown.  We serve with Mushroom gravy or without. Whatever you like. :)

Ours are in the oven now and starting to make the house smell pretty durn good. Refer to the first photos forthe finished product, as it'll look about the same.

Thats a little flour in the pie shell that was there to keep them from sticking together, as they were pre-prepared crusts and one was in the other.  Rutabaga is da fruit of da yooper. :)

Similar to a turnip but tastes more like a potato but much firmer. We love em.

Sorry Jeff I should have been more clear. I've never had the meat pie you're making. I probably was offered it as a kid but was a very fussy eater. Too bad for me, I missed out on some very good meals because I wouldn't try stuff.

Now I will say that it was only in the last 10 years or so that I tried rutabagas. I'm going to grow some in the garden this year. I wonder how well they keep?

I lived with my brother when I was in college many MANY years ago. He grew rutabagas in his garden We had zero money, so dinner was sliced rutabagas fried on the stove (like fried potatoes) and Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.  :-X Hey, if you were hungry enough you would eat it too!

I was all about growing stuff in his garden until I came home one day and he was out there with a shovel. I wandered back to see what was up and found him burying a sack of dead rats.  :o   He explained that the lab he worked in had all these dead lab rats with no way to dispose of them, so he volunteered to take them with him. He figured they would be good fertilizer for the garden.  ::)     I didn't many rutabaga after that, I figured a bowl of oatmeal was just fine.

A couple of years ago we were vacationing in the UP.  I kept seeing those signs advertising "pasties", so I ordered one.  I thought that it would be a sweetroll, doughnut, or something.  Boy did I get a surprise.  Darn thing was pretty good after I quit laughing enough to eat it.... :D  It was a little individual thing.  At least with the "Troll", you can cut it like you want.

I look at rutabaga as an ingredient. I don't eat it on its own merit.

We had Troll Pie Last Night.  We have some picky eaters here, so I left out the carrot and the mushrooms and it was STILL good. :)

Norm, you most likely did fine in growing them. They have a strong flavor.
Try roasting or grilling. It sweetens them up quite a bit.

When I was in college back in the day, my brother and I lived on rutabagas for what seemed like FOREVER.  My favorite way to cook them was to slice them real thin and fry them like potatoes. A good helping of Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top helped.

We don't grind hamburg out of our Venison usually, we save what ever does not make steaks and put it into stew meat, which we use for all sorts of things. If we want it ground, we grind it right as we are going to use it. Today, this is just  diced venison in our troll pies, not ground.   :)   Should be good!

If you do not like the taste of regular deer burger, try having it ground with 50% beef chuck and 20% fat. It takes the gamey flavor right out and makes a big difference.

We love venison burger, we just have a different way we like to do things. We grind when we need it, because we can. It's hard to un-grind meat.  ;) 

In my view, anyone that does not like venison burger does not like it because the meat was not processed correctly, and then it was probably over cooked. I've proven that to a bunch of naysayers over the years. If you throw tallow or silver connective tissue in the grind you get yucky meat.  We trim every little piece.  :)

This is very true.
The bad think about someone that tries Venison for the first time is eating it prepared by someone who doesn't know how to cook it. It's hard to get 'em back then.

Jeff, when I lived in the UP back in the 70's and 80's, I used to live on pasties, but never learned to cook them myself.

In a much earlier post you said "Once the rutabaga is done, which takes the longest"....since I've never cooked rutabega, how long is "longest" on average, or more precisely, how do you know when rutabega is properly done?  I might want to try to make this troll pie this weekend.

Rutabaga is checked just like a carrot or potato, with a fork. Carrots take just slightly less time to cook, and potatoes less than carrots. I usually just make sure to add them to the pan in that order so they get cooked around the same time, and so the potatoes don't over cook and get mushy.

I've never tried to make troll pie but the ingredients look to be similar to a Beef Stew.
I use one rutabaga in each batch but have had bad luck with them being grainy and fill with fibroids that ruins the dish about half the time.  Have you had that happy to you?

A lot of store turnips or rutabagas have been harvested before they are ripe from the fall frost. A frost will sweeten a turnip up. Never had any woody ones.

I make something like troll pie all the time, but not pastry crust, just whipped taters (with butter and cream) on top. But I usually use turkey or chicken and some alfrdeo roasted red pepper sauce. Peppers, onions, sweet potato, carrots, rutabaga, parsnip. I just finished up a big pan full tonight.  :) 8)

I'm making my first Troll Pie tonight. The only thing different was I also added some chopped parsnips and fresh garlic. I'm also cooking the main ingredients in a Dutch Oven and then will transfer to a pie plate and re-bake. Smells great so far.

Well, the jury is out and all agree, Troll Pie is a winner. There is some left overs, so how do you keep it and heat where the crust is is just as flakey? Just cover with foil and bake again?

I think maybe the old hermit copied the recipe. Although, your troll pie crust looks much flakier. ;D

   Boy, this thread has been around a while. Sure looks like some fine eating.

   Reminds me of when I worked in Cameroon in West Africa and one of our maids made little fried meat pies. She'd moonlight selling them to the open air bars in the neighborhood and she saw me at a grocery store across the road and offered me one and I got hooked on them. She made her own crust which was real flaky and the meat and veggie filling which include a bite of hot pepper and she included green beans cut about 1/4" thick. I'd get her to make me a bunch and I'd freeze them and fry a few in the deep fryer when I wanted a snack. I had it set up one day a week she'd have a plate full hot and ready for lunch. We'd have weekend card games and she'd take my little ice chest home with her make me up 25-30 and bring them back just before game time. They were a big hit. They remind me very much of the ones Jeff and Swamp Donkey show only they were fried and much smaller. I have to stop typing and go get a bib.
