Here come the holidays and we are so excited! Why you ask, because holidays means good food!! Food you can’t and shouldn’t eat everyday. One of our favourite dishes to eat on Canadian thanksgiving (we celebrate two thanksgivings because we came to Canada from America. Canadian thanksgiving marks are 2 1/2 year anniversary living in Canada. My husband and I love traditional stuff and could eat it for two thanksgivings and Christmas but our children don’t like it. Some times my family would have two stuffings at thanksgiving one boxed stuff and one lobster. Since lobster is one of my favourites I thought the kids would love it too. I was right and so I’m happy to share this homemade recipes with all of you. There are no canned, box, bottled, or frozen ingredients in this recipe but it is so easy to make.
2 cubed dried baguette
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon of each garlic, sage, thyme, onion powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 whole lobster
1 cup lobster broth (aka water you boiled the lobster in)
1 pack bacon
Step 1. Boil lobster in enough water to completely cover the lobster. Add salt and garlic to the water for flavor.
Step 2. Cut hard baguettes into medium cubes and set to the side.
Step 3 removed lobster from water and save one cup of broth. Cut lobster tail and pull or chop the meat into small and medium piece. Set to side.
