There's nothing stopping you from using the garlic and chive curds...I can see posts for the poutine-variations for mini pies now!

Poutine is a year-round dish while tourtiere is more around the holidays.

Yeah, I know, but some one has to mix it up! LOL! I don't think we ever had tourtiere besides Christmas Eve, after midnight mass. My father's family tradition. Mom said her family always had it as a midnight meal on New Years Eve. When we visited Quebec, it was on some Sunday brunch buffets, which it is ideally suited for. I know many France-French friends (my family is, please forget the canned spaghetti connotation, Franco-American) who'd never heard of it. Then one French friend just wowed at the concept, a childhood favorite. Her daughter and I got into a sort of contest for who could make the best tourtiere. Then my sibs started calling me every Christmas holiday to talk them through making my version of it, which is leaner and the family favorite.

Now I make it for .... well, whenever. It really is a great dish for a buffet, especially a brunch buffet.

I haven't made it in a long time. I think it's time when the weather cools a bit.

Yeah, it definitely is a cooler weather dish. Has anyone else ever heard of the tradition of eating it with beets? For some reason that was a tradition in both my parents' families.

Yup, I think that's pretty standard here in Quebec.

If I can get SO to eat a tourtiere for dinner, I can serve her beets. That will have to satisfy the tradition as I won't eat the things.

Husband LOVES tourtiere, I first made it for him when we first married. However, he claims to hate beets, and in my family one goes with the other! I excuse him from the beet thing, but he insists on sticking with tradition and having at least a bite?

How do you fix your beets?

I don't cook them often as I don't like them. Last time I roasted them. SO sometimes opens a can of baby beets.
