    Bergy's Note:

    The true (original) French Canadian tourtiere was made with 'Tourte' a type of pigeon, hence the name. It is very tasty. Be careful not to use too much allspice

      Great recipe! Just like mom used to make. It reminds me of my childhood growing up in Montreal. The cloves and allspice are the key ingredients to make it truly like my mother's recipe.

      Mmmm this turned out very good. I used bought uncooked pie crusts. Very tasty, we liked the spice mix and the mashed potatoes added good body to the filling. One of those things we just have to have sometime over the holidays. thanks for sharing a good one!!
