READY IN: 4hrs 45mins
Recipe by karen in tbay

My best friends French mom has been serving this pie up for the past 30 Christmas Eves that I have spent with them since I was a young teen and now with my family. She so graciously shared the recipe this past season with all of us. I guess you could call this tourtiere perhaps.

These are the same meatpies my sister in law always makes at Christmas. They are always delicious! Thanks for posting the recipe so now I can make them too!
