      Meat Pie was some thing that my mother would make every christmas and thanksgiving. She would make 10 pies because everyone loved it so much & wanted leftovers. Since my mother passed away I have searched for a recipe that was close to hers so i could work with it. I changed the following *Used potatoes(5) and boiled them to mash them to mix in with the beef and pork, also NUTMEG IS THE KEY, it adds sooo much more flavor. Great recipe!

      I definitely recommend grating the potato rather than cubing it. It made a world of difference in binding the meat together. I also added some leftover mashed potato and it worked beautifully. Hint. Use more potato! :)

      The outcome was rather disappoining as I have never made a tourtiere before and the directions weren't very helpful. If I had made one before it may have helped. The flavor was good but I didn't understand how to construct it. It says one pie shell and then it says to fill two shells? Then cover with pie crust. How do you do this with one pie crust as specified in the ingredient list? For a first timer... it would have helped to have had better directions. It wasn't easy for me to follow. Jelly
