Pork Pie is a standard Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve treat in my predominantly French-Canadian hometown in Maine. It's served with catsup or mustard, tossed salad, and pickles. Simple but wonderful. Top individual servings with catsup or mustard before serving.

  • Mix together cooked meat, potatoes, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.

  • Line a 9 inch pie dish with pastry. Spoon pork mixture into pie crust, and top with second pie crust. Brush top crust with egg white. Shield crust edges with aluminum foil to prevent burning.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Me and my husband both really enjoyed this recipe!! I did change it up a little bit though. I only used 1 pound ground pork and 1 pound ground beef and I browned the meat with 1 onion chopped, approx. 1 tbls minced garlic and steak seasoning. I also added garlic to the mashed potatoes. This was the perfect amount of filling for 1 pie. Very tasty! Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

If Husband picks at something with little interest (he'll eat ANYTHING) I know there's something wrong... I thought the nutmeg might be nice but it just tasted weird. I used one pie shell as a lid to cut down on calories. I added so much seasoning - garlic onion powder Worcestershire sauce - but it still wasn't great. I seriously doubt I will make this again. It was edible at least. Sorry. Read More

This Pork Pie was very good with mashed potatoes in the mix rather than bread crumbs as in other recipes. Found the meat could have had some chopped onion and some more spices though. Read More

This is so good. One of my favorites. My mother in law makes something very similar but uses bread crumbs instead of mashed potatoes. I use the boxed mashed potatoes to make it easier and faster. Read More

I thought this was a good and unique dish. But I have to admit that it is just one of those dishes I will probably never make again. Read More
