- Canadian Meat Pie
- Canadian Pork Pie — French Canadians traditionally serve this pie following midnight
Mass on Christmas Eve.
- Cheddar-Parmesan Poutine
— 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
Delicious heart-healthy Saskatoon Bars. You can replace the saskatoons with
raspberries or strawberries.
— 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!
