    Nana Lee's Note:

    French Canadian Breakfast spread. Usually served in restaurants at breakfast. I asked for this recipe on another site b/c I had it often when I was growing up. The person who makes it, and posted it, is from Quebec. I cannot give an amount b/c it depends on how thick you spread it on your toast!

      NOTE:.
    11. 11
      A suggestion has been offered to lessen the amount of breadcrumbs. Think about it before you commit to 1 1/2 cups.
    12. 12
      A layer of fat may coat the top; you can remove this as you use the spread.
    13. 13
      Spread on warm, unbuttered, toasted crusty bread. Yummy!

      Really really good except that the one and a half cups of breadcrumbs was too much. It had a very crumbly and dry consistency which made spreading really difficult. Next time, I would add a little bit at a time until it becomes "spreadable." Other than that, it was amazing.
