Grew up eating this in Montreal. Was designed during the depression days. Came to California at 5 years old. Still having it the old way with or without onions, have added dry onions to the meat. Try that. Adds zest to it. You can't make a bad one.


I add frozen peas to the mix..same layer as the cream style corn.......try it it's really good

This is really the same as my Mom used to make while growing up in Quebec except my Mom always put a crust on top and it really made a great meal, it was always served with ketchup.I sometime use sucotash(corn/lima beans) and my husband loves it that way.

This is actually a French Canadian dish not exclusive to the province of Quebec.
