A tourtie're is a savory French Canadian pie. Originally this was made in a cast iron pot over coals. This recipe is made in the oven. The unique part of this recipe is that the topping us poured over the inside of the pie after it is cooked. This is great for brunch or a hearty breakfast. Personally I would love to try this in the cast iron over the campfire and as soon as I do will report how it works.
