We’ve been making pasties since 1938 which means we’ve seen pasties eaten with a variety of food, the choices of what to eat your pasty with are endless So, if you ever feel like changing up your pasty eating regime, here are five ways you can eat a Carrs Pasty.
On its own
Just a pasty, on its own, with no fuss. Perfect if you’re on the go and looking for a quick snack, or if you’re at home and you fancy something to eat with a brew. Our pasties are made so that they can be enjoyed on their own or when paired with other foods. So, if that’s how you like them, don’t worry, we like them like that too.
- With sauce
There is a lot of debate about which sauce is the right sauce to have with a pasty – it has even been known to divide friendships (not something we advise). Many people love it with ketchup (that’s red sauce for some of you), others prefer it with brown sauce (HP or Daddies is a separate debate entirely). Of course, then there are the people that enjoy their pasties with salad cream or mayo. Other suggestions you could try are HP Fruity Sauce, Hot Sauce or mint sauce.
- A pasty barm
A pasty barm (bap, cob, barm cake) is a true Bolton delicacy. It’s something that confuses people who aren’t from Bolton – until they try it and realise that although it is double carbs and probably a little bit of a weird combo – it’s delicious. Now, there are many combinations for pasty barms – do you go for our original meat and potato pasty? Do you spice it up a little with our cheese and jalapeño pasty or do you keep it simple with a cheese or steak pasty? Then of course, there’s the condiments – salad cream, ketchup, mayo, butter? The choice is yours.
- Peas and gravy
If you want a proper hearty meal, then there’s only one thing for it. Pasty, peas, and gravy. It’s got to be mushy peas, of course and you can even add a little bit of red cabbage if you want something extra. It’s always a winning tea with the family – and the peas and red cabbage count as two of your five-a-day!
- With another pasty
Now this isn’t for everyone, but for some people one pasty just isn’t enough, so they have two. And sometimes, that’s okay.
Other combos you could try if you’re feeling adventurous are:
- Baked beans
