My wife's family is "french canadien", and they have some french canadien food that the rest of the people around me have never heard of...

So, I was wondering how many of you folks have heard of this stuff, if it's eaten "often", and what not...

I can't spell some of these names, so I'll try to phonetically spell them, and of course corrections would be welcome! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thanksgiving: pork stuffing - some pork, some spices, and some potatoes made into a "stuffing" and served with the turkey at Thanksgiving. Great stuff!

Christmas morning: pork pie, called "tut-kay". pork browned and put into a pie crust.

New Year's Afternoon: "free-coo". brown some flour, mix it into a gravy, add some strands of pork and some balls of pork (like meatballs), and spread it out over some white bread.


One other "french canadien" family I know has the pork stuffing, but they don't add the potatoes to it, so it's just pork...


(BTW, the reason I put quotes around french canadien is because all of them were born here, none actually coming from canada, but they still honor these "traditions"...)

That's actually what I was wondering!! I'm wondering how much of this "tradition" is real...

@Scrubbs: You would obviously know better than me, but I was going off the spelling listed here (http://www.canada.com/sports/hockey/canadiens.html) for the ol' Montreal Canadiens hockey team... I realize that's probably the plural of canadian?
