This Easy Tourtière Meat Pie is a French Canadian recipe that is often served around the Christmas holidays. 

Easy Tourtière Meat Pie

Traditional Tourtière Meat Pie takes a while to make, since the crust is made from scratch. 

However, with this recipe we are using a pre – made crust. 

I made this exact recipe a few years back on this blog, except that recipe shows you how to make the crust from scratch.

If your interested in that recipe, “you can find it here” Canadian Tourtiere Pie

Personally, I like to make this meat pie all year round.

And I will always have some frozen pie shells on hand for this exact recipes, as it makes for an effortless meat pie. 

The reason this recipe is easy is that it calls for a pre-made pie crust shell. (as seen below) which allows you to have this recipe done in a fraction of the time and will no real dough making skill at all. 

Producing the exact same pie as a traditional Tourtière that is traditional made from scratch.

Also be sure not to skip on the potatoes they really help to hold the pie together.

I hope you give it a try this holidays season and let me know what you think.

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!
