Tourtiere Tarts

Tourtiere Tarts


Tourtiere is a French Canadian meat pie that is traditionally served on Christmas Eve. I first ever had these at the home of a French Canadian friend..I have been making them at Christmas time as a make ahead appetizer for years now. It can be made into one individual pie, but I prefer the individual tarts..I freeze these individually on cookie sheets and then vacuum seal in my bagger or can be stored in a plastic container.
