    yooper's Note:

    Here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, it is a tradition for the Catholics to eat pork pie on Christmas Eve, after coming back from Christmas Eve mass. This is a cousin of the French-Canadian Tourtiere. I'm not Catholic, but I love these rich meat filled pies!

      This was excellent!! I made a subtle changes though-I doubled the ingredients in order to make the pie 'fuller' I used a refrigerated ready made pie crust, and used instant (cooked) potatoes serving sized for 3-4. I didn't change the overall flavor, just so that it would feed more people with minumum fuss. Great recipe-Thank You-
