March 23-27, 2020: What to Cook This Week

This time of the year only means only one thing in Eastern Canada: The sugar shack. Given circumstances, bring the experience home instead by paying homage to the season with five recipes using ingredients embedded in this tradition: Sausage, peas, eggs, maple syrup and potatoes.

Monday: Italian Sausage Strata

Strata is the ultimate comforting recipe! Bready, cheesy and filled with sausagey goodness, this dish is guaranteed to make everyone around the table happy they made it home on time for dinner.

Tuesday: Hearty Vegetable and Chickpea Soup

A bowl of this heartwarming soup is the perfect remedy for a chilly midweek night! Filled with bright, sunny vegetables, it’s also hearty enough to be eaten on its own, as a meal.

Wednesday: Mexican-Style Scrambled Eggs

This recipe is an easy way to spice up your night! Pile the soft, pillowy scramble on top of corn chips and serve with a dollop of sour cream and salsa for just the right amount of heat.

Thursday: Maple and Ginger Lacquered Salmon

Gone fishing…for flavour! This sweet and zesty marinade is not only the perfect pairing for salmon’s rich buttery texture, but it seals in moisture, keeping the fish ultra-tender.

Friday: Potato and Caramelized Onion Gratin

These creamy, cheesy potatoes with pan-fried, golden onions are the perfect combination to welcome the weekend. Serve as an accompaniment to braised meat or as a main course with veggies.
