   “Although pot-en-pot contains the same ingredients as fricot, the method of
   preparation is significantly different. The most commonly used meats for
   this dish are chicken and hare but beef, pork, duck or goose may also be
   used. In Cheticamp and on the Magadalen Islands, pot-en-pot is called
   Etouffrage.”
   
   Poultines Blanches: In a bowl, mix flour with salt and baking powder.
   Gradually add cold water to the dough as one would when making biscuits.
   Roll the dough fairly thin, cut into 1 1/2 inch squares and place in fricot
   or other dish. Cut the meats into pieces. Place the pieces in a large pot
   with the salted water and bring to a boil. Simmer until the meat is tender.
   Remove the meat from the pot, reserving the stock.
    In the bottom of a second large pot, place a layer of potatoes, a layer of
   meat, a layer of chopped onion Season with salt, pepper and summer savory
   and continue adding until there are no ingredients left.
    Add the stock from the simmered meat and just enough water to cover three
   quarters of the ingredients. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until the
   potatoes are tender.
    Add Poutines Blanches (dumplings) 7 minutes before it is ready to be
   served, cover for the remaining 7 minutes.
   
   VARIATIONS: To vary the taste, other spices such as cumin or coriander may
   be added to the pot-en-pot. The meat may be sauteed before being simmered
   to improve it’s flavour.  Handkerchief dumplings (included with Fricot a la
   Belette may be layered in with the ingredients at the beginning of the
   cooking time, instead of the dumplings used.
