I Fell in love with this pie when I had it in Maine with some of my French Canadian friends that made many of these around holiday time for gatherings. Its like a party in your mouth and lovin'from the oven!!
This recipe is from a friend that got it from her "Memmerre" (Grandmother) and it comes out perfect everytime! Very simple but complex flavors in this one.

How to Make French Canadian 'Tortiere Pie' (Pork Pie)

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel & cook potatoes to make and equal amount to mix with pork after it is browned. You can use Idahoan Pkg mix instead --it is the best instant on the market I believe!
  2. Cook ground pork with chopped onion and season with S&P, clove,nutmeg & cinnamon to taste.
  3. Preheat oven 400 degrees.Combine browned Pork with potatoes in nearly equal amounts. You may need to add a small amount of water so you can work with it. Fill ready pie shells and top with a crust. Put 4 slits in top shell for steam. Cook for about 40 minutes or until top crust is light brown.
  4. This recipe is for 2 pies because one is never enough and you can freeze what is left over in individual baggies and take them out whenever you want some....ENJOY!!
