J if for Jiggs Dinner







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!!

  3. Down here we call it boiled dinner and usually has ham in it. Was one of my least fave meals as a kid, although now that I'm an adult it looks really good!!! I see references to Jiggs Dinner on the Facebook Newfoundland page all the time.
