This pie is delicious! I got the recipe from my husband's mother. She is French so I believe this is a French Meat Pie. Beef, pork, and potato are all nicely spiced and baked into a pie. It's yummy and pretty easy to make too! Best served fresh, but you can also make ahead and freeze or refrigerate.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place the potato in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, mash, and set aside.

  • Meanwhile, crumble the ground beef and pork into a large saucepan, and add the garlic, onion and water. Season with mustard powder, thyme, cloves and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring to crumble the meat and mix in the spices, until the meat is evenly browned. Remove from the heat, and mix in the mashed potato.

  • Place one of the pie crusts into a 9 inch pie plate. Fill with the meat mixture, then top with the other pie crust. Prick the top crust a few times with a knife to vent steam. Crimp around the edges using the tines of the fork, and remove any excess dough. Cover the edges of the pie crust with aluminum foil.

  • Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the crust has browned. Serve by itself, or with a beef gravy.

Good but in my opinion not quite as good as the Meat Pie (Tourtiere). But because I think it has more of an 'expected' taste it might be a better choice to serve to guests. I didn't think the leftovers were so good though. Read More

With a little help I'd give it. Next time I will double the potatoes and add flour to the meat juices to thicken as it was too dry and crumbly as is yet very flavorful. Yumyum. Read More

Just like the pork pies my French-Canadian relatives always made. Great consistency and look. The taste was a bit bland and the next time I make this recipe which I will do I am going to at least double the herbs and spices. That should make the pie very flavorable. Read More

I found this recipe via ingredient search. Then I did not have the ingredients I thought I did. It still turned out great using the basic recipe and I will make it again. Our whole family (14 month included) enjoyed it. My recipe is as follows: 1 cup frozen green peas 1lb ground turkey 1 clove chopped garlic 2/3 cup chopped onion 1/4 cup water with 1 tsp beef bullion added 1 tsp mustard powder 1 tsp dried thyme 1 tsp salt (but I will use 3/4 in future) 1 tbsp butter 1/3 cup potato flakes. After baking I let it set for 10 minutes before cutting. Read More

This was fantastic and everyone loved it. I didn't find it the least bit bland but I did change a few things. I didn't add any water to the meat mixture. I also used roasted garlic instant mashed potatoes (entire pouch) instead of a regular potato. I plan on using just a bit less cloves next time. This whole dinner was pretty easy and quick to make. It was also by far the best I've ever tasted. Read More

The taste of the meat pie was very bland. Didn't like this recipe at all. Maybe if you were to add more spices to it it would make it a better meal. Read More
