One of my fondest memories of Christmas morning while growing up was having a traditional French Canadian Tortière (meat pie) for breakfast. My mother would prepare only two pies once a year—one pie for Christmas and one pie for New Years. Unfortunately, do to unforeseen circumstances, neither my sister nor I have been able to continue this tradition. In other words there is no copy of the recipe! I have come across the occasional pseudo version of my mom’s, but God forbid they had foreign things in them like carrots and potatoes. Luckily, since moving to Southern California, I have had the good fortune to meet fellow Canadians that share similar Tortiere eating roots. It is my good luck to finally find a recipe that evokes the memories of my Christmas past.

With gratitude and thanks to my friends Deborah and Norm.

The store downstairs from my apartment makes home made traditional tortières. You'll have to try them when you come visit my new pad in Ottawa Deb. Lori
