Mary Morrisette’s Canadian meat pie

From the kitchen of Melissa Pappas

This is my Great Aunt’s recipe. The pie is traditionally served on New Year’s Day.

3 pounds of lean pork (shoulder)

1 pound of lean beef

1 onion

Place in large pan.

Season to taste with salt, pepper,

cinnamon, and/or cloves.

Stir meat with enough water to cover.

Cook for one hour

When meat is cooked, skim off top fat.

Add ½ cup to 1-cup bread crumbs.

Stir and place in pie shell

Cover with top crust

This pie is served hot.

Partly cook it if intending to freeze it or eat at a later time.
