Currently living in Southwestern Ontario, I was born and raised in Quebec...Cretons is something I crave, but only get on trips home (which is good for the waistline!) The recipe is easy and delicious; the next time I make this I will be cutting down on the amount of clove (for my Husband) it is slighthly overpowering. THanks so much for this lighter version!

My husband is Acadian from New Brunswick and he always pines for his mama's Creton. I found this recipe and liked it because of the lower-fat twist to it. I made it and we both thought it tasted just as good as his mother's! (BTW - the natives like to eat it on some whole grain toast with some mustard slathered on top - YUMMY!) Thanks for posting this!

This recipe epitomizes what I love about 'Zaar; just when you think you have heard it all, someone comes up with a delicious new thing to try! I made this exactly as written, and it did smell yummy while it was cooking. Tried it out on my breakfast toast this morning - SO GOOD!! I can't eat cottage cheese, and I get sick of having a boiled egg every morning - now I have a delicious alternative! Try it, you'll like it!

This is quite yummy. I've never heard of cretons before and didn't really know what to expect. It's a very thick, loose meat concoction that tastes great heated and served over toast. I haven't tried it cold on toast yet, and that me be the usual way of eating this. Wish it were true but I don't believe the nutrition facts presented here. I was fairly certain I wouldn't like as much cinnamon and cloves as the recipe called for, so I used half the recommended amount. That was fine for my tastes. Cook over very low heat and stir very frequently-it scorches quite easily. A delicious way to get your morning protein.
