Cretons de Quebec

(12 servings)

  • 1 pound pork or turkey sausage
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 onion - finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic - minced
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 pinch ground allspice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • bread crumbs - if desired
Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium high heat until browned.

Drain away the fat. Add milk, onion, garlic, and spices. Continue simmering on medium-low heat, stirring often, until milk evaporates.

Allow the spread to cool. Serve on toast.

If you like a thicker spread, you can add bread crumbs to cooked sausage. No more than a quarter cup.

Cretons de Quebec is an old-school French-Canadian breakfast favorite. It's usually served on toast or plain bread.
