This is an excellent tourtiere. I made it last Christmas for my friends from Quebec and they raved about it. In fact I think between the two of them They ate half of one and I sent them home with the second one I made. After the fact I received many requests for your marvelous recipe. It was a HUGE hit. Thank you so much. For my friends who were dearly missing their own friends and family clear across the country during the holiday seasons it added a little bit of home away from home and made the holidays just that little bit more enjoyable.
What a wonderful recipe Annacia. The house smelled wonderful all day. I love tourtiere, for me it signals the start of Christmas. Mom always made tourtiere before the holidays, but she would use a mixture of venison, pork and rabbit. We really enjoy this tasty version. It was just lovely, it had great subtle flavors and nice textures. I liked the spice combination. The tourtiere was quick and really easy to make, I didn't change a thing, only adjusted seasonings before baking. The mushrooms were a nice addition to the pie. Thank you so much for sharing your friends recipe, dh raved about it for two days. I should mention that it was just as good if not better the following day.
I made this for supper last night and it is oh so good and leaves the house lingering with such a wonderful aroma. I couldn't find savory so like some of the others I used thyme. To cut back a little on the calories I used half the amount of the ground pork and added 1 lb of extra lean ground turkey, and because of that I substituted chicken stock for the beef stock. It turned out great. Looking forward to having leftovers tonight as it made plenty.
what a fantastic Tourtiere! I loved it, only change i made was to add a few cranberries to it which is something i love in another one.
I cut back on all the spices as hubby wanted that,it was perfect,delicious.Will make again.
I also substituted thyme for the savory as I couldnt find it, this meal was wonderful and really very easy to put together, thankyou
The only thing I omitted was the savory because it just isn't sold here:-( Subsituted fresh thyme. What's not to like? Yummy five times to match the star rating.
