Posting this for ZWT (Canadian Region). it is described as a typically French Canadian main dish. I must say it sounds good though I admit I will probably play with the seasonings some when I make it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake the potato until done, 30 - 45 minutes in a preheated 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) oven; peel and mash the potato.
  2. Place the potato, ground pork, onion, mushrooms, spices and water in a large frying pan and simmer until very thick, for about one hour.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare your pastry; line a deep-dish pie plate with pastry.
  4. Spoon in filling, spreading evenly & cover with top crust.
  5. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with paprika, if desired; cut steam vent.
  6. Bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C); if edges brown too fast, cover with a strip of foil.
