Some time ago, when I was working at a newspaper, a co-worker happened to bring a meat pie for lunch. The aroma was familiar to me, and I asked for a taste. To my amazement, it was the same pie my grandmother used to serve when I was a youngster! I copied the recipe, and I have been enjoying French Meat Pie ever since. It's still delicious!
This hearty meat pie was traditionally served on Christmas Eve by mother's family in Quebec. The recipe has been passed down through at least four generations and has been translated from my grandmother's original recipe in French. —Diane Davies
