Recipe by Colomb
"This fragrant, tasty, lower-in-fat version of the traditional tourtiere has been made for 100 years by Colomb family to honor our Quebec origins. My Aunt Marguerite began baking these pies after Thanksgiving and froze them until her standup freezer was full for Christmas. It was tourtiere for all during the Christmas season! Serve with a fresh vegetable tray and cranberry sauce. This is wonderful home-made fast food."

leanest ground pork
crumbled dried sage
1 (15 ounce) package
double crust ready-to-use pie crust
one of the better Tourtieres ......but a homemade crust is much, much better because the ready made ones taste too sweet for this sort of pie.
Have made these for Christmas Eve for 35 years, coached by two French-Canadian mothers in law. I will caution that the frozen crusts taste too sweet for us. I use 1-1/2 to 2 lbs of pork per nine inch pie, so this recipe would make two 9 in. pies. Wouldn't be Christmas without these pies.
