Canadian Recipes

  • Canadian Meat Pie
  • Canadian Pork Pie — French Canadians traditionally serve this pie following midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.
  • Cheddar-Parmesan Poutine photo — These French fries are a playful spin on a Quebecois favorite - lightened up with canola oil. Traditionally made with cheese curds, poutine in this recipe features cheddar and Parmesan instead for sharper flavors.
  • French Canadian Sugar Pie
  • Saskatoon Bars photo — Delicious heart-healthy Saskatoon Bars. You can replace the saskatoons with raspberries or strawberries.
  • Tourtiére photo — While many French-Canadian tourtiéres do include mashed potatoes, the majority do not have grated potatoes in the bottom. I don't know when this tradition started with my family. Maybe it simply was my grandmother's response to difficult economic times. With more money, or fewer sons to feed, the layer of grated potatoes decreased, and the measure of meat rose – regional Canadian cuisine at its budgetary best!
