This traditional Acadian meat pie is a staple in our freezer for around Christmas. I got this tried-and-true recipe passed on from my great-aunt Kay. It's excellent with chili sauce.

Filling

2.5 lb (1.25 kg) turkey thigh or breast
2 lb (1 kg) pork shoulder or butt roast
2 small potatoes (whole)
1 large onion (medium dice)
2 tsp (10 ml) chopped fresh summer savory
salt and pepper
cornstarch and water slurry (as needed to thicken)

4 PEI potatoes
½ cup Cheddar cheese, grated
2 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes
2 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
herbs - dill, chives, thyme
½ cup PEI lobster meat, cooked
2 tbsp butter
¼ cup milk
1 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Scrub potatoes and prick with fork. Bake approximately 1 hour until tender. Cut in half and scoop out cooked potato, reserving skins. Mix together with remaining ingredients. Spoon into shells and bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 4 servings.
