"This is the recipe my grandmother used to make. It only uses pork for the pie and is delicious. I make one for my father every Christmas Eve and he loves it!"

MY Grandmother, (my "meme") made a similar mix of pork and mashed potatoes, but used a bit of sage for flavor and used it to stuff ducks or geese. Magnifique!
I wouldn't say it's the best Tourtiere recipe I've ever tried, but it's not bad. I think I'd prefer a few more ingredients to make it a bit more flavourful A Quebecois collegue at work thought it smelled great though!
This is delicious! And easy to make, too. It does take a long time to cook but the results are worth it... we got a fluffy, well-flavored meat pie. This one's definitely a keeper!
I did substitute half ground beef and half pork. Only made one pie for 3 of us. Definitely a keeper for a winter night meal!
Our family makes Tourtiere pie every year, too, but our recipe uses 1/2-2/3 hamburg, and the rest pork. And we cook it up with a chopped onion instead of celery, which I think tastes even better. All in all, this is a great and easy recipe, and is delicious hot out of the oven, or cold out of the fridge the next day! Yum!
I am so glad I found this recipe! My parents and my meme before them make this every year for Christmas Eve! Now I can surprise my father (a pepe himself now) with one! This pie is the best and oh so good! Everyone should give this recipe a try, you'll surely love it!
I made this recipe over the holidays and my entire family loved it. I halved the recipe and only made one pie but have been asked to make more!
My grandmothers used to make this for the holidays too; I didn't care if there was another dish served or not...as long as I had my own pie! Like my grandmothers, I use a fresh ham and boil it until well cooked and falling from the bone. It may be hard to find a fresh ham, so substituting the ground pork works too. I then grind the ham, and put the potatoes through the grinder/strainer as well. The rest of the recipe is basically the same, except we didn't/don't use celery or bay leaf. And the pastry dough is made fresh...preferably with lard. Glad to see someone else knows what this wonderful dish is! :)
