Tourtiere (French Canadian Meat Pie)

Kay Hendricks

  • ½ lb. ground veal
  • ½ lb. ground pork
  • 1/3 c. chopped onion
  • ¼ c. water
  • 1 tsp. salt (scant)
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • ½ can mushroom soup
  • 1 recipe pastry

Combine all ingredients together in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until meat has lost its pink color but is still moist; cool. Pour meat mixture into pie shell, cover with top curst, slit centre, flute edges. Bake in hot oven (425) for 20-25 mins or until browned. May be frozen and re-heated.

Eva’s note: “Delicious,” says my sister-in-law, Kay. She ought to know for she is one of the best cooks. She also says to drain the meat after cooking but not to press out any fat or juice. Can be made as individual pies. Do not bake too brown if intend to freeze.

N.B: Add the mushroom soup after browning meat. For a variation, add 1 stalk finely chopped celery.

Quick Pastry

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 1 large cookie sheet. Measure 1 c. flour into a bowl. Add ½ c. margarine and cut in with pastry blender. Sprinkle in 1 tbsp. of water gradually, mixing with fork till all flour is dampened. Using half the dough, make 2 strips on each side of cookie sheet. For the topping:

Pumpkin Pie Squares

  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • ½ c. oatmeal
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • ½ c. butter
  • 2 c. pumpkin puree
  • 13 oz. evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ c. white sugar
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ginger
  • ½ tsp. cloves
  • ½ c. walnuts
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. butter

Mix first four ingredients until crumbly and press into a 13” by 9” cake pan. Bake at 350 F for 15 mins. Combine puree, milk, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves and pour over crust and bake until it begins to set. Recipe says 20 mins but I usually bake it much longer. If you put the topping (combined walnuts, brown sugar, and butter) on too soon, it will sink to bottom. After topping has been sprinkled on top, bake 15 mins more or until pumpkin is completely set.
