Jiggs dinner is a traditional meal often cooked on Sundays. It consists of salt meat, cabbage, potatoes, carrot, yellow turnip (rutabaga) turnip greens and pudding (yellow split peas), all boiled in the one pot, accompaniedby roasted chicken or turkey stuffed with savory dressing, and then smothered in gravy. (Some people will also use mustard pickles and pickled beet as condiments). Jiggs Dinner is also often called Sunday Dinner, cooked or boiled dinner
There is always plenty of leftover vegetables from a Jiggs dinner, which are mixed into a pan and fried to make "cabbage hash" or "hash" on Monday.
Jiggs Dinner is also called "Sunday Dinner", "Cooked Dinner" or "Boiled Dinner"
ITS SOME GOOD!!
