Patty shells with filling is classic Danish food also known as "Grandmama Food".
I am big fan of patty shells with various fillings. The classic filling in Denmark is made of white asparagus and chicken. However, I think this filling is my favourite patty shell filling.
If you making to much filling or you are eating too little, you can always freeze any left overs to later use.
