Pork Pie

"Pork Pie is a standard Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve treat in my predominantly French-Canadian hometown in Maine. It's served with catsup or mustard, tossed salad, and pickles. Simple but wonderful. Top individual servings with catsup or mustard before serving."

Me and my husband both really enjoyed this recipe!! I did change it up a little bit though. I only used 1 pound ground pork and 1 pound ground beef and I browned the meat with 1 onion chopped, approx. 1 tbls minced garlic and steak seasoning. I also added garlic to the mashed potatoes. This was the perfect amount of filling for 1 pie. Very tasty! Thanks for the great recipe.

If Husband picks at something with little interest (he'll eat ANYTHING), I know there's something wrong... I thought the nutmeg might be nice, but it just tasted weird. I used one pie shell as a lid to cut down on calories. I added so much seasoning - garlic, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce - but it still wasn't great. I seriously doubt I will make this again. It was edible at least. Sorry.

This Pork Pie was very good with mashed potatoes in the mix rather than bread crumbs as in other recipes. Found the meat could have had some chopped onion and some more spices though.

This is so good. One of my favorites. My mother in law makes something very similar, but uses bread crumbs instead of mashed potatoes. I use the boxed mashed potatoes to make it easier and faster.

This is the second Christmas now that I decided to make this pie! So, it is REALLY good! People loved it! Hope they will do so this time, too. :-)) Thanks, Laurie!

I thought this was a good and unique dish. But, I have to admit that it is just one of those dishes I will probably never make again.
