what do you do with the potatoes ? Do you mix it (the POTATOES with the meat the recipe doesn't say?
I only used pork & never put mashed pot. in it but I'll try this on for size!
I've made this many times in the past and have come up with some alterations. Instead of a whole onion, only use 1/2 onion. Also instead of the 2 tsp. Allspice, cut down to 1/4 tsp. to 1/2 tsp. Allspice can be an overpowering spice. Other than that very easy and very tasty.
Best meat pie ever!
Shades of childhood! This is the tortierre of my childhood. A staple at Christmas. Mom learned the recipe from my father's mother. The only difference is that she didn't use ground beef. Just pork.
I make every year for dad
