What fillings can you put in a cornish pasty?
Cornish pasties are made with meat and vegetable fillings. Traditional pasties contain beef, pork or mutton with potatoes, turnips and other vegetables. Some pasties have a sweet "dessert" filling at one end to provide a sweet end to the meal. Contemporary pasty shops often make "Italian" pasties with sausage, marinara sauce and cheese, and other non-traditional fillings.

Who introduced cornish pasties?
Traditional pasties originate from Cornwall, England hence the name Cornish Pasties. Pasties were made for tin miners who could eat their lunches easily and efficiently while down in the mines. Traditional pasties are stuffed with beef, potatoes, swede (type of turnip) or rutabaga, and onions. The crust provided a sort of handle so the miners would not eat traces of arsenic that may have been on their hands from working in the tin mines. The crusts were discarded in the mines for the "knockers," whom some believed to be spirits in the mines that might lead them into danger.
