Cretons (Canadian Pork Spread)

Share

This is my very easy, one-pot recipe for Cretons (Canadian Pork Spread). Never heard of cretons before? Cretons are a kind of pork spread, flavored with spices, onion and garlic. It’s pretty similar to pate or rillettes, if you’re fans of those. Apparently in Quebec they have cretons for breakfast! I’m more comfortable spreading it on some crusty bread or crisp melba toast for lunch or dinner myself.

With this creton recipe, you mix all the ingredients together in one pot and leave to cook, meaning it’s low-effort and really easy. I love the strong flavors of this spread, the onion and spices are a great match for the deep pork taste, it’s a beautiful thing!

My husband grew up with his Mom's cretons but unfortunately she passed before he thought to get the recipe from her. I've been searching unsuccessfully for many years to find a recipe that replicates what he remembers. I finally found it with your recipe. My brother-in-law confirms it is the same as what they had growing up. They are both thrilled to be able to enjoy this little throwback to their childhood again. Thank you for posting this!!
