Hi June, try this it's one of many ways to do Tortiere.
(one nine-inch pie)

1 pound fresh minced pork 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 small onion, finely chopped 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup hot water
1/2 teaspoon savory 2 cups soft bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon each: ground cloves, celery pepper 1 teaspoon milk

(a) In saucepan, combine pork, onion, salt, savory, pepper, cloves, celery pepper, garlic powder, hot water; bring to boil over moderate heat; then cover saucepan, reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes.
(b) Add bread crumbs, stir with fork; cook another ten minutes.
(c) Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Cool.
(d) Preheat oven to very hot (500). Line pie pan with pastry. Fill shell with cooled pork mixture. Cover with pastry for top crust; prick to allow steam to escape.
(e) Brush top crust with one teaspoon milk. Bake in preheated oven 20 to 25 minutes. Watch carefully that pie does not scorch: high baking temperature is used so that crust will not become soggy from the moist filling.
(f) Serve hot or cold with pickled beets, pickles or chili sauce.
(g) If pies are frozen for future use, reheat in a moderate oven.
