This delicious tourtiere recipe (meat pie) has been handed down for generations. 

French Canadian in origin, it's a great addition to our international buffet table. My daughter-in-love, Sylvie, (before she became vegan), brought this with her to our Christmas Eve get-togethers.

Something passed on that long is a sure indication of how good this is! Sylvie and Carmen make many of these tourtieres and freeze them - as gifts and for themselves.

French Canadian Tourtiere Recipe

Traditionally eaten after midnight mass on Christmas Eve, they are enjoyed year-round as well. They've become part of our German Christmas tradition as well!

She makes them with her mom, Carmen, but the recipe can be traced back to her grandmother's mom!

If you're looking for some of the best ground beef recipes, try this minced meat pie. I think you'll agree with me that these are great. 

Sylvie says, "Serve these with ketchup!", but I must admit that I like them just the way they are.

Tourtieres are native to Quebec, Canada. There are so many different fillings that are used with a variety of meats.

Pork, veal, beef, and even wild game is used and makes for a wide mix of meat pie recipes.
