I've never even heard of mutton pies. Are they pot-pie type things or pasty type pies?

Yes, indeed, what are mutton pies? Have never heard of them. Are they anything like a chicken pot pie but made with mutton rather than chicken? Or are they something like a Natchitoches Meat Pie, a Shepherd's Pie, or something else entirely? Sounds interesting but different. While have known of a few areas/places where mutton, as opposed to lamb, is occasionally served, have never known of an area where it is really big other than the Owensboro, KY, area. Perhaps The Mayor will know about mutton pie and have a recipe for it.

You can still buy them-on Union Ave in Paterson-at a small spanish restaurant-I don't know the exact address, but it is near a Dunkin Donuts, a deli and a tatoo shop.

Wow, this brings back memories! Every Christmas my nana, who is 94 and from southwestern Ireland, made mutton pies for my family to bring back to Connecticut (she lives in Springfield, MA). They were very simple- cubed, stewed mutton in gravy encased in a biscuit-like pastry. They were served hot in a shallow bowl of chicken broth. I never cared for them, but my family wolfed them down. Who knows how good they were?(On a side note, I'd like to add that every year she made a birthday cake for the baby Jesus and we'd blow out the candle!)

My grandfather loved Taylor's meat pies. A couple of years ago we found the closest thing to them in Kearny, NJ. There are a couple of places, one is Stewart's of Kearny, and they have a website
http://www.stewartsofkearny.com/ where you can order on line, however, I suggest taking the ride to Kearny. Enjoy!

Sorry, my experience with Mutton is either with the BBQ in Owensboro,KY...or at Louis's Basque Rest. in Reno. Louis serves a Mutton Stew which basically what is described a few times above..but in a soup bowl instead of a crust.

teak:

I went on line to see if I could find a recipe for Mutton Pies and found your question.

My first mother-in-law, Kate Carfello used to love the Mutton Pies you refered to. Almost 38 years ago when my kids were little we would drive to Paterson and turn off onto a side street and buy those delicious little pies. She recently went into a nursing home and I wanted to try and make some for her. The recipe I found sounds like it could be the one but the proof will be in the taste. It was nice to see that someone else remembered them too.

I grew up on them as a kid living 1 block away from Bill Taylors shop on Union Ave. I've often wondered where I might find a good pie like Taylors and am happy to find recomendations on this site. I don't believe Taylors is still in business anywhere but would happilly travel anywhere in the tri-state area to get some. I can almost taste them now----

I too, grew up near Taylor's, on Redwood Ave. Last I heard, someone had bought the business and was making them on Belmont Ave. in Haledon. The last time I talked to him, he was having a rough go of it, and was considering selling the business. This was approximately 10-15 years ago.

The menu on this website lists "Meatpie, Sausage Roll, Bridie or Cornish Pastie." Just curious, since I've heard all of these except "bridie," is this another name for a cornish pasty (pastie, whatever) or something else? Thanks!

Definitely not another name for a Cornish pasty :) although originally when invented in the 1870's the bridie had some similarities. Cornish pasties [should] contain finely cubed ( not minced ) meat, usually beef, swede and/or turnip, onion, potato and seasoning. The traditional pastry to contain all this is shortcrust, although unfortunately many commercial companies use puff pastry, which somehow in my mind detracts from the rugged nature of the pasty. The shape is also different to a bridie - a pasty in all its variations including tiddy oggies and Lancashire Foots is usually shaped from a " half moon " pastry piece and crimped either at the top or at the side.

The original Forfar bridie did contain strips of beef, onions, mustard powder, a little beef stock and suet. It was made from two small ovals of pastry ( I have found different versions using suet pasty and flaky pastry )joined together to make a round little pie. Some of the modern versions in Scotland now use minced beef, and the bridie on the Stewarts of Kearney site appears to be nothing more than an oversized sausage rolls with potato - probably still very tasty though.

Youre welcome :) I will ask the guy who runs the little farm goods & deli store round the corner if he has any more info, as he's Glaswegian

Even though we may be smaller than some US states, we do actually have a really large and interesting range of regional foods, and they are making quite a comeback thanks to Tv chefs such as Rick Stein etc who take the trouble to hunt these things out and promote them and small producers. So it does make me quite cross when people offhandedly rubbish brit food without much basis ( like one particular poster did with several posts in the hotdog forum recently ) - yes there is some terrible food to be found here but that's a global problem, don't just come to somewhere like London and sample three or four places there and then say " Its all awful and they know nothing about food " !!!

Sorry, didn't mean to get on my soapbox, but that guy did make me really annoyed One of the reasons I love reading Roadfood forums is thats its fascinating to compare regional specialties even on different continents :) and its interesting to see similarities or how they have developed from one another.

I am originally from NJ and I do remember Taylors in Paterson. My ex's grandfather used to take me over there for them. There was a place up further on Union Blvd. going towards Totowa, next door to the Dunkin Donuts. I forgot the name of that place, but they made the same mutton pie as Taylors did. I think they said they got the recipe from them. I was just trying to find one online and no one seems to have it. Not even my cookbooks have one. So if you do find one. Please send it to me as well. I'm dying to taste them again. It's been a few years since I had it last. I left NJ 2 years ago. I'm glad someone else has the same craving for them as I do. LOL

I think that less Americans than ever are eating mutton. I got very good auction prices for my lambs in 2005, but my old ewes (mutton) brought low prices. Lamb has become a luxury meat. Loin chops here in Massachusetts cost more than lobster, but lots of mutton ends up being used as a low cost "mystery meat". A lot, I am told, ends up in restaurant lasagna. The shepherds pie that was served in the school lunch programs 50 years ago turned a lot of people against mutton for life, so perhaps that is to blame. I have only had mutton pie once that I can remember, and that was in Europe. If I saw mutton pie in the store I would buy it if only to help the seller hold on to the shelf space. Mutton, if well prepared, can be very good.

I understand, there's a place called cameron's of kearney, who make "mutton" pies just like Taylor's used to make. They're made with beef, but I haven't gotten around to trying them, as for right now, I'm living in Michigan. But if i get back to Joisey, I will definitely try them.

I have lived in and around Paterson all my life and grew up on Taylor's mutton pies.My great grandfather had a blacksmith shop at the bottom of the Great Falls,and his grandfather moved there when "God save the King" was still the national anthem. By the 40's Taylor's pies were everywhere, deli's, roadhouses(ginmills or bars),the corner store and not only in Paterson but all the surrounding towns.I grew up on all types of British foods, Oxtail soup,kippers and eggs,fish + chips, etc. but Mutton pies were my favorite.We would cut them down the middle so that the meat was facing up and watch them rock back and forth taken from a very hot oven, I can still smell them.My father talked to old man Taylor just before he died and he said he was closing the shop.But you can order them from [www.goodwoods.com] British Market, the postage is high but they taste very much like Taylors.If I find them closer I'll post a note.Next time I'll talk about hot dogs "all the way".

I lived in Paterson most of my life and also had mutton pies. They were made by a family named Taylor. They moved to Haledon and their daughter made the pies on Belmont Avenue under the name Aston Meat Pies. They had a fire at this location and went out of business. If anyone finds them keep me posted I'm still searching too.

My family owned The Clifton Pie Shoppe which originated on Lakeview Ave., Clifton, NJ and
moved first to Mill and Slater Sts. in 1946 and then to Grand Street in Paterson, NJ until
the early 1960's when the business was sold.
In Paterson, we were called Susen's Pie Shoppe. Our specialties were individual Mutton Pies,
Steak Pies, Chicken Pot Pies [2 crust], and various Fruit Pies as well as regular sized Coconut Custard, Apple, Blueberry, Cherry, and other varieties of fruit pies. These were individual pies were oval shaped & all were entirely made by hand. [No machines involved]
Our competitors were Ashton's on Main St. near the Lackawanna RR Station and Taylor's on
Union Ave., both in Paterson, NJ. There's were machine processed and round shaped.
Many of the Scotch Lodges in the area, including Kearny, NJ, regularly ordered pies from
us for their different affairs and meetings. Many "deli's" and other food vendors, as far away as Greenwood Lake sold our pies.
There may be some people out there who remember us.
Lots of memories for me and nice to reminisce.

We took the drive to Stewarts of Kearny this last Saturday. While they are not an exact match, they are close enough for us! While the "meat" in the pie is unidentifiable to me, I don't really care. We will be making regular jaunts to purchase these beauties. I'll have to look up Cameron's of Kearny, too.As far as I am concerned ,tho, Stewarts was just great. How wonderful to be able to buy them frozen and bringthem home and have them anytime I want!!

We cut them in half, too. My father-in-law used to put catsup on them.

My husband grew up off McBride Ave, in W Paterson and was a huge fan of Fallviews Texas Hots.We went to The Hot Grill in Clifton this time. REALLY liked it!

Hi Jimmy,


Don't know if you remember me but I lived a couple houses away from you. You used to hang out with my brother Richie. My father & I just came across this site & saw your post. We still LOVE mutton pies although they are not the original "Taylor Pies" As for right now we get them in Kearney. They're pretty good but I'm sure not mutton. Please let us know if you plan on doing anything with the recipe anytime in the near future. Would love to taste 1 again!!!

Wow!!!! This is amazing. I was born and raised in Paterson, NJ. I grew up on Redwood Avenue and every week, my mother would send me to Taylor's on Union Avenue for mutton pies.
I tried the ones made at Kimmy's, they're okay, but they are not Taylor's.
I've just read the post from James Taylor who said he still has the recipe and is considering opening back up again. Oh, please do. Believe me, you'll have more customers than you can handle.
I will definitely be a weekly customer. When I used to hang out at The Wagon Wheel Bar on Preakness and Union Avenues, all the guys would chip in and we'd order about three dozen pies and spent the rest of the day stuffing our faces.
Do I remember Taylor's Pies? Are you kidding, we were raised on them.

RE: Mutton Pies 2008/06/25 14:39:53
Oh my! I can't believe I stumbled upon this today. I was googling for mutton pie recipes and came across this. I am originally from NJ. I grew up on these pies.

My grandmother is an immigrant from Scotland. She went to Kearney a lot for the fish and chips but she (and my family) also made regular trips to patterson for the mutton pies. We also made regular trips to Haledon for Verp's rolls too (they have since changed their recipe - perhaps ownership or something else too).

I have not had mutton pies for at least 30 years now. I think I was told the reason was the shop was no longer there or something as I was much younger and can't recall the specifics. Some foods you remember from childhood and special trips. We moved away from NJ but we STILL made trips to these areas to pick up the foods to bring back home and share with friends in bulk.

In the times of the internet it'd be wonderful if there was a way of ordering online and having them shipped (packed frozen as food can be).

My Grandmother has since passed on now 2 years ago (and my grandfather longer then that). My mother would love to have some as would I. Maybe I could try my hand at making them. I can't wait to tell her about finding this thread online!

My parents and my wife's parents grew up in Paterson and we both were raised on Mutton Pies. Our kids love them. The last place we were able to get them was in North Haledon but that place no longer in business. Please let me know when you open up your new store. We are desperate to find real muton pies.

I am just leaving to pick up mutton pies at Stewart's of Kearny in Kearny, NJ.  These are the authentic duplication of the Taylor Pies of Haledon.  They are $1.80 per pie or $21.60/dzn.  The true mutton (lamb) pie is kept frozen, but the ones most of us are familiar with were only called mutton, but were actually ground up beef pies, which adds to the confusion.  The beef pies are fresh made daily.  The website is Sales@stewartsofkearny.com.   Their Pt. Pleasant, NJ place told me on the phone they don't make mutton pies, and never bothered to tell me about their other location, so I'm making the trek to exit 15A on the pike. Their phone at the authentic store is 201-991-1436.  Now, after I eat one, or two, I'll add a note about the taste.   Yum!

Bought two dozen mutton pies at Stewarts of Kearny.  They rate an 8/10 to Taylor's.  A little spicy, ground beef, sausage taste, perhaps a bit smaller, smaller hole in top.  They were precooked, but I popped 'em in the oven for another 15 minutes.  Served 'em with ketchup like I used to eat them.  I have shared them with a neighbor, also of Haledon, Ray Burns, to see what he thinks.    So much time in between that perhaps my memory can't recall every detail, but in general they're the same.

Is there any chance that Jimmy Taylor wants to sell his receipe since he never opened a place?  I'm interested.  Partners?    Let me know.

I am in search of your pies to take with me to Houston, TX next week.  It appears that I will make the drive from NE PA to Kearny, to Stewarts.
Although she doesn't know it, I want to surprise my 100 year old grandmother who was raised on McBride Ave. in Paterson.  She often talks about Mutton pies, Taylor ham and Tastycakes!  As you can imagine, I do bring 2 out of 3 on my treks to Houston to see her.

Hello James,


I grew up on Jasper Street right around the corner from your dad's store.  I remember you being in the store all the time as a little boy.    I loved those little pies and miss them.  I hope one day you decide to start making them  (the bean ones too) and restart your family tradition by opening Taylor's Meat Pies again.  I will be the first one on line.

Hiya All,
     Wow, I remember Taylors. My Dad used to bring us there when we were kids. I grew up in South Paterson & Prospect Park Too. I loved these Mutton Pies. I don't have anything to compare them to, but I would bet that they would have won awards for such a good recipe.
 
     Now I reside in Nashua, NH, but I grew up in South Paterson. Through the years I lived in Prospect Park, Nutley and Clifton to name a few in NJ. Sometimes Sometimes I went by the nick-name Albatron, and was known to also be called Kipper, I just think my buddy Denis used to get off calling me Albatron,  along with all the people from the Mudhole in Nutley, NJ. If anyone remembers me (Allen Cappon), email me. I also lived in Mill Rift PA, Port Jervis NY, Hollywood FLA. 
 
     Seems like NJ is the only place for Mutton Pies, Taylor Ham, Hot Dogs all-the-way and Mussels from the pizza shop. I'm sure that I am missing a thing or two, but WTH, it's only a "Thing" or "Things".

 Hello, my name is James Taylor the son of the late Al Taylor of Taylor's Meat Pies in Paterson. My father sold the recipe to the Ashton family in 1990 after suffering a stroke and later died of a heart attact in September. I understand the building in Haledon where Ashton sold the pies burned down to the grown. I have the recipe home in my safe.I have the know how to make the pies and hopefully will soon in the near future. 
 
 
Hiya James,    Do you remember Bob Cappon or "Robert", that was my Father, he was a faithful customer of yours for years.  I worked for Pied Piper (The ice cream vending company that was in Hawthorne, behind the triangle diner) for years, and made it a point to have your Mutton pies for lunch at least twice a week. During the holidays, we always made it a point to stop in for some goodies. Sometimes we'd even sneak them into the Fabian theater. I'd give one of my limbs for that recipe LOL.
 
Did you & your family ever win anything for that recipe ?? Like from contests or any type of food forum ??
 
Thanks
Allen Cappone

If I had the recipe I would share it with the world. Why let a good thing die. Or at least I would somehow start making them again. While people still remember them.
My son and nieces and nephew have no Idea what they are and soon no one will know. You would have to introduce them all over again. Would not take much capital to start. It's one of the few food items that you could never make enough of if your the only maker. They are like a Bagel. Bagel shops do fine with just bagels.
Wish I could share the taste with my son and others that never had one.
I remember having to get there early or they would run out.
