DangerousKitten:
So, is it true that meat pies and pasties are not eaten in America?

If so, would any USians be interested in a recipie to try it out?

Sharnita:
Pasties are extremely common in Michigan,  particularly the Upper Peninsula.

DangerousKitten:
What shape are they, and what do they contain?

Here in the UK the classic is of course the cornish pasty which is shaped kind of like a croissant and contains a fairly dryish meat mixture with potato, onion, and often peas, swede or other diced vegetables. A lot of places also serve flat, rectangular pasties containing beef chunks in gravy, and increasingly there are other flavours such as chicken and mushroom or cheese and onion.

I think I saw the guy on Man vs Food trying an American meat pasty, and he put ketchup on it, which I found bizzare and offputting.

No, not true.
Chicken pot pie, also beef are common.
Pastries are very common in US, homemade and in bakeries and delis.

Sharnita:
Dry, meat, veggies,  potatoes (there is a rutabaga debate with many contending real pasties have them). Kind of half moon shaped, dense. Some people put gravy on them, some add ketchup,  some don't do either.  The area was a huge mining area and I believe they were ideal for miners to bring into the mines with them.
