Tourtiere (French Pork Pie)

Rating: Unrated
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: Unrated
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 desert.

Tarte a l'Oignon (French Onion Pie)

Rating: Unrated
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: Unrated
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: Unrated
An indulgence of fries, gravy and cheese. A Canadian specialty!

Instant Pot® Baked Beans

Rating: Unrated
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.

This is a pork spread that used to be very popular amongst French Canadian working in the woods. This is best appreciated spread on toasts or plain multigrain bread.

Pouding Chomeur

Rating: Unrated
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.

Pork Pie

Rating: Unrated
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.

Gorton (French-Canadian Pork Spread)

Rating: Unrated
French-Canadian pork spread for toast and crackers....This was my memere's recipe and so far I have never had any better. Very simple to make :) I guess from what I read, Croton and Gorton are almost the same, Gorton being the New Englander translation :) Enjoy

Chicken and Sliders

Rating: Unrated
This recipe is an old French Canadian recipe which originated during the depression. It consists of tender pieces of chicken and homemade noodles swimming in a delicious gravy. A real rib sticker and a favourite with my family during the winter. Sounds harder than it is and it is absolutely delicious!
