Have you always wanted to make your own Tourtière but it's felt like too much? 

We've got you! 

This is the perfect blend of spices to make your own Tourtière at home! Mix with ground pork and cook it off, and then fill a pie crust (you can buy those too you know). 

Or mix it up and try it with other meats - beef, rabbit or game meats like venison - or even with diced cauliflower for a vegetarian version.  

You don't need to wait until the holidays, enjoy Tourtière any time you want.

Making Traditonal Tourtière 

Making Tourtière Filling

We will send you instructions, don't worry. 

You can do the simple method: brown ground pork. Drain and then add Tourtière Spice Blend From Lex's Pantry with a little stock. 

Or you can do the slightly more complex method:
saute some onions, brown your ground meat (pork, pork and beef, or another mixture of meats). Drain off the fat. Add the onions, some precooked potatoes and the Tourtière Spice Blend From Lex's Pantry with a little stock. 

Boom, you are ready to put it into your pie crust and bake it!

Pie Crust for your Tourtière 

The quick and easy way to get a pie crust for your Tourtière is to buy it. There are excellent premade pie crusts available at grocery stores. And they don't vary wildly from what you would make at home, except that you don't have to do it. 

If you want to make your own, go for a traditional savory pie crust. I'm a fan of the one on the Tenderflake box. 

Serving Tourtière 

The great thing about Tourtière is you can serve it with a simple side salad for a lovely meal.  

Don't forget to have a tasty sauce though. It's traditionally served with ketchup. Yes, ketchup! Though restaurants will likely try and give you something fancier, it is what's on the table in most Quebecois dining rooms. In fairness, some families use chili sauce instead. There are often also pickles or pickled beets. This gives a nice sweet and sour kick that pairs wonderfully with the spiced meat and flaky pastry. 

Try Something New

Mix things up and turn this into a Tourtière Burger by using a little of this spice blend straight in a 50/50 mix of beef and pork! It goes great with ketchup, so you know it'll make a great burger. Yum!

  • Spice Storage

    Spices, rubs and spice blends, should be stored in a dry, cool, dark place and used quickly to get the most flavour from them.

    Ground spices typically lose their freshness and are often past their peak in 6 months.
