We borrowed this Christmas Eve treat from our Quebecois friends and gave it a twist by creating individual servings. Accompanied by a salad, this is a filling lunch or dinner (and you can make it ahead and freeze it).

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 rib celery, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup beef or chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
