Tourtiere (French Pork Pie)

Rating: 4.5 stars 76
This is the recipe my grandmother used to make. It only uses pork for the pie and is delicious. I make one for my father every Christmas Eve and he loves it!

Real French Crepes

Rating: 4 stars 127
I am a French Canadian from Montreal, this recipe is one of the first ones that I learned as a child growing up and can either be served traditional style with REAL maple syrup on top or cold with ice cream rolled into it and chocolate syrup on top as a dessert.

Tarte a l'Oignon (French Onion Pie)

Rating: 5 stars 32
This is a traditional French holiday side dish made without any cheese. It's also a very simple side dish that will impress other cooks at potluck parties.

Chomeur's Pudding

Rating: 4.5 stars 49
A classic French-Canadian sweet. Along with rice pudding and gelatin, this is one of the most commonly offered desserts in diners. Contrary to the usual recipe, this one uses milk for a more cake-like texture.

Real Poutine

Rating: 4.5 stars 78
An indulgence of fries, gravy and cheese. A Canadian specialty!

Instant Pot® Baked Beans

Rating: 4.5 stars 22
This recipe was passed down through my French Canadian family from my grandmother, to my mother and then to me many years ago. It traditionally takes hours to make, as we let the beans slow cook overnight in the oven on low heat. I decided to try and transform it into a much quicker Instant Pot® recipe with great success! With this method, you don't even have to presoak the beans. These are even better the next day, and they freeze well, too.

French Canadian Tourtiere

Rating: 4.5 stars 192
Traditional French Canadian Tourtiere (meat pie), served on Reveillon (Christmas Eve).

Fried Smelts

Rating: 4 stars 25
My Newfie grandmother's smelt recipe. They're like little fishy french fries!

Garlic Prawns

Rating: 4.5 stars 126
This is a great easy prawn marinade, they are great on the BBQ, we put them out as appetizers but they can also be a main course. I've also sauteed them with the marinade and used the sauce with pasta or just lapped it up with French bread! ENJOY.

Pork Pie

Rating: 4 stars 30
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.

Brown Sugar Pie I

Rating: 4.5 stars 101
Brown sugar pie is a basic pie from Quebec, Canada. In French, it is Tarte au Sucre Brun. Delicious!!

Pouding Chomeur

Rating: 4.5 stars 11
Though it translates to 'unemployed man's pudding,' pouding chomeur isn't cheap to make. The good news is you don't really need to eat this more than a few times a year anyway. It's the perfect dessert to pair with summer fruit or vanilla ice cream. If you use a bigger baking dish than I did, and pour over all the maple cream syrup, your cake should float over a pool of what will eventually be your sauce. If you just use a deep pie dish like I did, then just serve the extra sauce on the side.
