MJ’s classic Tourtière … just in time for Christmas.


thumb_IMG_1983_1024 Tourtière is one of my favourite Christmas traditions.

One of my favourite parts of Christmas is tourtière. Growing up, my mom always made it for Christmas, and after I left home I wanted to carry on that tradition. I’ve tried various recipes, but my go-to recipe is the one that was provided to me by MJ, one of my favourite fellow French-Canadians. Of course, I have tweaked it a bit to make it my own, as should you. Even if you don’t have French-Canadian roots, I would highly recommend you add tourtière to your Christmas baking list, everyone will love it.



450g lean ground pork & 900g extra lean ground beef (you can swap out some of the beef for ground veal if you want)

2 medium onions finely chopped

3 garlic cloves crushed

Ground savoury to taste (this is the herb that gives tourtière its classic taste)

  1. This flatbread is interesting and looks delicious. I think I would like it as a pizza…easy and quick to make. Thank you again for the great ideas…..
