   COMMENTS:Bake in miniature size and use as an hors d'oeuvre, suggests 
 the
   owner of this recipe, who uses muffin pans for his favorite dish for a
   December family reunion. To accompany the mini-tourti=8Ares, he likes
   home-made tomato-and-peach ketchup and dry red wine. TIP: Add a pinch 
 or
   two more herbes and spices. Heat oil in a large, heavy frying pan and 
 saut=82
   ground pork, veal and beef, breaking up meat until crumbly. Add garlic 
 and
   onions, and saut=82 until vegetables are soft. Add beef broth, sage, ba
 y
   leaf, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, parsley flakes, dry celery leaves and
   celery seeds. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Add brandy and
   breadcrumbs. Blend in salt and pepper. Simmer briefly. Mixture should 
 be
   moist. Cool. Preheat oven to 425'F.. Line 3 9-inch pie pans with 
 pastry,
   reserving an equal amount of the dough for top crusts. Fill each pan 
 with
   meat mixture. Cover with pastry, cutting two slits in the center of 
 each
   pie to permit steam to escape. Brush each pie with beaten egg. Bake
   tourti=8Ares for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350'F. and cook until crust
  
 is
   golden-brown, about 25 minutes. Serve hot or cool completely, wrap and
   freeze. Makes 3 tourti=8Ares. From the MOTREAL GAZETTE, DECEMBER 5 1984.
