Recipe by Nana Lee

French Canadian Breakfast spread. Usually served in restaurants at breakfast. I asked for this recipe on another site. The person who makes it, and posted it, is from Washington state, and this version appears to be the one I had growing up. I cannot give an amount b/c it depends on how thick you spread it on your toast!
