Tourtière is a French Canadian tradition served during winter. The Gaudreault family always serves this dish at Christmas time with their mom’s (Germaine’s) Tomato Fruit Ketchup. Christian’s sister André recently remindedme that when they were kids, because their family was so large – 10 children – they would make five tourtières at one time. Every Christmas Eve, the whole family would come over to celebrate, and the tourtières would be servedeither before the turkey dinner or alone with vegetables and a salad as a meal in itself. Here is the Gaudreaultfamily version of French Canadian Tourtière.
