"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." — by Colomb
