This isn’t a real review. I visited Teddywedgers, but can’t rank it because I only had the Breakfast pasty and I just can’t compare it to the Traditional. I arrived early (8:45 am) and was on a time constraint so don’t blame me. Or maybe, I guess, blame me.
Teddywedgers isn’t the easiest place to find, even with Maps, but you’ll find it somehow. It’s on the corner of a block just across the Wisconsin State Capitol. It’s also extremely small: see top picture.
They have two sizes available for all pasties: whole and half. That includes any of their flavor variations from the three breakfast options to the traditional and a few others served during the day. Still, there’s only one size pasty made because if you want half, they simply cut a whole one in half. I enjoyed mine early, but the half was still pretty big and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was close to a pound. I’d only get the whole if you were splitting one or just really hungry.
As for the pasty, the crust was pretty plain and possibly made without salt. There was almost no flavor to it. I had the breakfast so there’s not much else to complain about because a breakfast pasty is like a breakfast burrito. If you like eggs and sausage inside some kind of dough, you’re set.
Teddywedgers has been around since 1976, but as expected, it’s been passed around numerous hands. According to their site, miners used to be called Teddy Boys and they would call pasties Tater Wedges (hence the shop’s name), but I’ve never seen that before and am not sure how true that is.
There aren’t many pasty shops in Wisconsin so there’s not much to complain about. I’ll try the traditional at some point, but based off the breakfast version, the crust needs some work.
