Traditional Newfoundland Recipes

Jiggs’ Dinner is arguably the most traditional Newfoundland recipe. Some families have Jiggs’ Dinner on special occasions, while some have it every Sunday! Salt meat – or salt beef (which is cured beef purchased in a bucket), cabbage, potato, carrot, turnip, and yellow split peas are all boiled together in a single pot. Some families add meat, such as a turkey or roast beef.

Toutons are another fan favorite in Newfoundland. A touton is simply fried bread dough. Whenever someone makes homemade bread, some bread dough was always put aside to make toutons.
