Tourtiere... those wonderful French Canadian meat pies that are a tradition at Christmas...
Tradition or not, a tourtiere is a great "make ahead" as the pie can be assembled and frozen, then baked straight from the freezer just before serving.
Unfortunately, my French Canadian daughter-in-law's recipe makes 15 pies so I tried this version by Montreal Gazette food editor Julian Armstrong (A Taste of Québec). Easy to make, it has a very mild "pork only" flavour. The pie crust is from The Pioneer Woman.

Any suggestions for a spicier, pork and beef filling? Please pass them along! Merci!
