This is the most similar recipe to my mom's (a born & bred Canadian) I have found. I got this recipe from 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.

Original Canadian Tourtiere

1/2 lb Ground pork

1/2 lb Ground veal

1/3 c Chopped onion

1/3 c Water

1/4 ts White pepper

1 ts Salt

1/4 ts Ground cloves

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.

Mix in mashed potatoes. Fit bottom pastry into 8" pie plate.

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

Bake for 10 minutes; lower oven temperature to 400øF and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is hot.

Serves 6

Note: If you prefer a spicier tourtiere increase seasonings to your taste.

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.

  • 1 package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/4 cup or more extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups sliced zucchini squash
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions (can be spring onions)
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh dill
  • 1 garlic clove (may omit)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten slightly
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, Unroll crescent rolls and press into a 9 inch glass pie pan, covering sides and bottom.

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.
