Mom’s French Canuck Pie

This is a handed down recipe that my Mom used to make for the family, growing up. It comes from my French Canada heritage , known as a meat pie, stuffed with pork sausage, ground beef, potatoes, and spices. It is best reheated back in the oven after chilling in the refrigerator, and baking  at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, where it brings out the flavor.


  • 1 double pie crust, top and bottom
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb pork sausage meat
  • 4 medium-sized potatoes
  • 1 large onion minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • dash of salt to taste

Prepare pastry and line a 10 inch pie plate. Combine meats and cook in fry pan stirring until meat particles separate (about 10 minutes). Meanwhile, boil potatoes and onion together in water until tender. Drain and mash adding a little potato liquid. Add salt and spices, meat and pan drippings. Combine all together. Turn into lined pie plate. Cover with top pie crust and cut slots for steam to escape. Brush with egg wash (1egg and a little milk) and bake in 425 degree oven for 30 minutes. If reheating cool before placing in refrigerator.
