I can’t talk about Canadian food and not mention any of the delicious maple dishes that we enjoy here in Quebec. My motto is this: Everything goes well with maple syrup! Especially for breakfast! Pancakes with maple syrup! Delicious! Maple bacon breakfast pie! Delicious! Maple bacon crack! Ha-ha! Yes, I’m serious! Check out the original recipe here.
And also, check out this Maple Beans recipe. They surely taste a lot like our local beans. Maple beans is something we serve at breakfast from time to time. A little bowl is served with bacon, eggs and sausages. So good!
Maple Beans Recipe
8 cups dry white beans
1 cup pork fat
2 cups onions, sliced

1⁄2 cup molasses
1 1⁄2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 1⁄2 tablespoons salt
1 1⁄2 tablespoons mustard powder
14 cups water (about)
Wash the beans and drain. Set aside.
In a big oven-proof saucepan, melt the pork lard. Add onions and cook at medium heat, stirring, 2 to 3 minutes or until soften. Add maple syrup, molasses, tomato paste, pepper, salt and mustard powder. Stir. Add the beans and cover with water.
Cover and cook in a preheated oven of 250 F overnight or at 350 F for at least 7 hours (add more water if needed).
