Instead of nutmeg, I used allspice. And a little bit more. Me and my son loved it. DH doesn't like tourtiere so he didn't taste it at all. I told my mom that I made this tourtiere and she wanted the recipe. I gave her by the phone yesterday evening and she made 5 tourtieres with your recipe. She also used a mix of veal and pork. She liked it. She's used to add ketchup to a tourtiere but with this one she didn't cause it was too good. It's really a keeper. And very easy to do.
