1) Preheat the oven to 425°F.
2) Divide the dough into 4 parts.
3) Dust the flour over the working table and roll out the each piece of dough into about 7 inch rounds.

4) In a bowl, mix well together potatoes, onion, liver, bacon and seasoning.
5) Place the potato mixture equally among the four rounds, leaving a margin around the edges.
6) Lightly brush the edges with water and pull the dough to enclose the filling.
7) Press the dough sheet to seal, then flute the edges.
8) Arrange the pasties on a baking sheet and brush with the beaten egg.
9) Bake in the oven 40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

10) Allow to cool over a wire rack.

13) Seal, label and return to freezer.

14) Serve hot garnished with chopped parsley of desired.
