Tourtière is a traditional French-Canadian dish that originated in Quebec. Traditionally made with a combination of meats like pork and veal tourtière is distinguished by the sweet spices added to the meat mixture. A combination of spices ranging from ground cloves, cinnamon and allspice are added to the filling – but every family recipe has their own special combination!
This distinctly Canadian meat pie is traditionally served on Christmas Eve with condiments such as green tomato ketchup, maple syrup and dare I say it, ketchup! Though tourtière is usually reserved for the holidays, once you taste this delicious pie you’ll want to make it all year long.
