My husband being from Quebec, loves tourtiere. I learned to make it from a traditional recipe and eventually added my own throw ins. He loves it.

This was pretty darn tasty. I omitted the veal and substituted ground turkey, but other than that kept pretty close to the recipe as posted. Pastry is not my strong suit, so it looked a little funny, but I made do!! ;) Made for PAC 08
