Combine, flour, celery seeds, salt, and paprika in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. With a fork, stir in enough water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, to moisten dry ingredients. Shape dough into a ball. Yield: enough pastry to top 4 individual pies or one 8 inch square pie.

This is a super easy, tasty and hearty recipe. It doesn't actually call for it, but if you want to make it a one-dish meal, all you have to do is add a can of vegetables of your choice.

This is the most similar recipe to my mom's (a born & bred Canadian) I have found. I got this recipe from razzledazzlerecipes.com/ which has a lot of great Canadian (&American) recipes. My mom did not put potatoes in as this calls for and always used regular ground beef. My dad loved this.

1/4 ts Cinnamon
1/4 ts Celery salt
1/4 ts Savory
1 To 2 potatoes, boiled and mashed
1 Pastry for 8" double-crust-pie
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Place pork, veal, onion and water in a saucepan. Simmer until color changes. Adding seasonings; simmer for a little longer. Thoroughly drain meat.

Fill with meat mixture. cover with top crust. Seal edges as desired and vent top to allow steam to escape.

Put olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the zucchini and onion and garlic until tender. I used two skillets because I liked to brown the zucchini just a bit longer and don't want to burn the onions and garlic. Then I remove from heat, mix them together and add the dill, oregano, salt and pepper. Then add the eggs and cheese, mix and put into the pie shell.
Bake approx 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven, until set. Cool 10 minutes and serve. We make it again and again.
Source: This recipe came from allrecipes but I changed some of the ingredients. It was easy to make but looks like you spent a long time making it.
