Oh Canada. Iconic Canadian Foods

I have always been a proud Canadian and enjoy sharing our history, tradition and culture.

Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain on 'July 1, 1867'. For One Hundred and Fifteen Year, this was known as Dominion Day. However, the name was officially changed to Canada Day in '1983'.

In honour of our upcoming One Hundred and Fifty-third birthday, over the next few days, I will be sharing some facts and information about my country.

Poutine



Several small towns in Quebec claim to have invented it which dates back to the '1950s'. A real poutine uses peppery meat-based gravy and “squeaky” curds on fries. Many swear it's a great cure for a hangover!

Canadian Bacon


What’s known in our country as “peameal bacon” is branded as Canadian bacon just about everywhere else. Unlike traditional bacon, which comes from the pig’s belly, Canadian bacon is lean pork loin that’s been brined and rolled in cornmeal. Carousel Bakery in Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market is world-renowned for its Canadian bacon sandwiches.

Caesar


Invented in '1969' by Calgary restaurant manager Walter Chell. The key ingredients are Clamato juice, vodka, Worchester and a salted rim. Every bartender will garnish them differently. Clamato-maker Mott’s claims more than Hundred and Fifty Million Caesars are sold every year.

Butter Tarts


The origins of this rich, pastry can be traced back the late nineteenth century in Ontario. Consisting of a delic crumbly crust and a creamy centre made of a butter, and egg mixture, there’s constant debate over whether raisins should be added the mix. The City of Kawartha Lakes offers its own Butter Tart Tour.

Ketchup… Everything!


While it’s not so much a dish as it is a condiment, there’s still something inherently Canadian about ketchup. There are ketchup chips (unheard of elsewhere). We also tend slather everything from Kraft Dinner egg burgers.

BeaverTails


Essentially a flattened fried donut without a hole. They are individually hand stretched resemble beaver’s tails. These treats became popularized in ‘1978’ They can be topped with either sweet or savoury ingredients.

These are just a few of the foods traditionally associated with Canada. Which ones have you tried?

The beaver tale reminds me a little of what we called baxten. Mom would stretch bread dough and fry it. As it was leavened with yeast, the surface was a bit rough as some areas rose more than others. Hot and buttered to eat with the meal as bread, and hot, buttered and powder sugared for dessert. Yum. And loin bacon is absolutely the best, although cottage bacon (from the shoulder) is very good as well.

I've seen ketchup chips (or crisps) in the UK when I was there nearly 20 years ago. Must be an import from Canada. They also had prawn crisps, which I shied away from.

Rashers, which I absolutely think are much better than the American style of bacon look a lot like the Canadian bacon you pictured, sans the cornmeal.

One thing I learned when I traveled in Canada, never insult someone's Poutine.

Now, I'm hungry...

All the best,

Post Me

I like BBQ sauce on my fries, but I still call them French fries. That "Caesar" sure does resemble a "Bloody Mary".

first of all, happy canada day wednesday,
and happy terry foxs birthday today.

YES -
love canadian bacon - more meat, MUCH less fat and grease (and mess!)

not sure about the butter tarts but they look familiar,
maybe in a different form?
kind of resemble miniature amish shoo-fly pies. yum!
id pass on the raisins, but they wouldnt stop me from eating it.

NO -
can you make a "poutine" knockoff
with something substituted for the gravy?
please dont say ketchup.

clamato? no thanx

not a big fan of ketchup, but DEF in moderation when so -
NEVER dump, only drizzle or dunk.

NEXT -
think ill thaw out some canadian bacon for brunch for tomorrow . . .
is there a uniquely canadian CHEESE?

So you're saying Kanadian Ketchup on Canadian Bacon could be a thing . . . eh?

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Hi, I spent a few months in Quebec City in '84. I have some very fond memories!
Most of which have absolutly nothing to do with food!
What I do remember though is a 'submarine' a long roll filled with chips and gravy. So really a routine in a roll. As you say a great cure for a hangover.

No doubt there are similar variations of a lot of things....usually it's a matter of who made and named it first

Yes a Caesar and a Bloody Mary are very similar. The primary difference is the substitution of regular tomato juice with a clam-spiked tomato juice that’s often referred to as Clamato (which is the name of the Mott’s-produced brand of clam-spiked tomato juice that has become a general colloquialism for clam-spiked tomato juice). I must admit to liking them both

Actually, today marks the day that Terry Fox died in 1981. His birthdate was July 28, 1958. I think the butter tarts are equally yummy with or without the raisins. No there really isn't an iconic type of Canadian cheese. However, the brand, "Black Diamond Cheese" is completely made in Canada with Canadian pasteurized milk. Thanks for stopping by.

I've tried them all. My least favorite is the beaver tail. Most favorite has to be peameal bacon!

Happy Canada Day sexyldy1000. It will be a different one for sure.

I love peameal bacon on a kaiser! Also kind of partial to a 'Caesar' on these steamy hot days. Happy Canada Day to you too -there's no doubt, it will be unlike any other
