My kids love those, and I have to admit they aren't bad. I prefer ground beef and onion pizza myself. Or, white pizza with broccoli and spinach.

white pie is great. there used to be a place in staten island - i'll have to ask nick if it's still there - the road house. that place used to make a clam pie that was just awesome.

I actually love these also. My wife, however, can't stand the thought of them. I loved beef and onion when Shakey's was still in business. That was probably their best pizza, IMO. Of course, somebody bought them out, changed the concept and - guess what? - they died.

The bottom line is that Canadian Bacon is yummy and is great on a hamburger, in a grilled cheese or with your morning eggs ...

It's good on pizza too!

Oh .. I agree. But the funny thing is that many of the pizza places up here in Canada just put regular bacon on it and not the Canadian bacon.

ok guys...no canada bashing...some of us are canadians and you might be offending people.....

If you could'nt tell, I was joking.

My mothers side of the family lived in Canada for over 200 years.
My fathers side emmigrated through Canada living there an entire
generation. Also, I grew up on the border Massena (notice french spelling)
our whole lives ,and I missed being a dual citizen because at the last
minute my grand mother decided to use the American hospital. I
even thought about moving there but because I was in the US
Armed Forces I couldn't. My older sister did and lives in Cornwall
and ironically works in a Bacon Factory.

I also speak French, watch CBC, put white viniger on my FF,
drink Labatts and curse the Tooney every chance I get.

Pete..I couldnt tell you were joking..hard to tell on the internet.

A fellow fries and vinegar lover!! I make my parents bring some to me by the gallon. Only my oldest son and I enjoy them....at least no one else steals our fries. My kids are dual citizens...gives them lots of options. I didnt go to english school until high school..then my undergrad was bilingual. Unfortunately it's hard to keep up the french when I dont have anyone to talk to other than my mother. My sophomore is doing quite well in it at school. I still havent figured out how to make my keyboard type in french...it's hard to email my aunt in quebec without all the accents.

dern those toonies! lol! (looney's too?)

I remember the first time a Canadian waitress told me how to remember which is which - toonies have 2 colors = $2.00. Think I was about 10yrs old. lol

I have one in my purse - it's for good luck when we go to Niagara Falls - course it wasn't very lucky a couple of weeks ago when we went over there for the weekend.
I LOVE going to Niagara Falls, Canadian side - I get to use my passport! We came back through Fort Erie on the Peace Bridge this time. Nice drive along the river.

Penny,

The easy way to type in French is to change the language in Word and the copy and paste your message into an e-mail (or e-mail direct from Word).

Here's how to change the language in Word. Click on Tools, then click on Language, then click on Set Language. There are several options for French in Word including Canadian.

Now if you don't have Word I don't know what to tell you (unless you have Word Perfect).

Yes, sarcasm doesnt work online, but I didnt think my post would be taken the
wrong way because I didnt think people bash Canada.

PS I still dont know what my sister makes Bacon or Ham....Ohh no, there I go again!

But whatever it is I am certain its delicious (just like coffee crisps or slaw dogs)

Pete...hurry up and get your review up! lol! I'm anxious to hear about it.

fries and vinegar is a canadian thing...we use white vinegar and lots of salt. The vinegar in the stores here just doesnt taste the same.

I've had that fries w/ vinegar at the NY State Fair. I think they had 'Malt' Vinegar?

It was really good - however, not something I would want everytime I had fries - but I don't use catsup everytime, either. Very Happy

Speaking as a New Yorker... fruit does not belong on Pizza! lol! Speaking as someone who loves food - I don't know what it is about pineapple on a pizza but it sure tastes good!

Its not mal vinegar...I dont like that stuff...it's white vinegar but not quite the same we have here in the US. We also have "poutines" which is fries with gravy and cheese.....very unhealthy but good.

and I thought my friend was weird putting cheese on apple pie.
Some combinations....just don't sound right...but once you try them...you like them.

I may have to try some vinny-fries. (I live only 90 miles from Winnipeg, Manitoba) I bet I can find the real thing there.

PS....Emerald Princess had some weird things on the pizza....like spinach, goat cheese, little fishes, Noro-Virus.....

I like spinach, chicken even goat cheese on pizza...not the little fishes tho.

My fav is broccoli/spinach/tomatoes/chicken on white pizza.
Okay.. now I'm hungry.

Love the ff & gravy...used to have that at about 3am at a little diner, after the bars closed..along with cheeseburger & onions & coleslaw.
Course, it does not taste the same going in 30 yrs later, sober as a judge... more kinda-yuck! LOL

Love the apple pie with extra sharp cheddar.

Best FF are cooked in Leaf Lard which is pork fat and best
gravy is pork gravy as used to be served in Quebec. Olive oil
makes good fries as well and is still used in Greece. The English
use malt vinigar which is completely different than white as malt
is usually red.

I like fried bread dough with butter and salt which my mom would
often serve during lent. I wont even eat in the same room if
someone puts sugar or maple syrup on it which my sister often
does. I tell her go to Tim Hortons if your going to do that.

The problem today is finding places which do not use vege oil vrs lard.
Health and relig. reasons are often cited for not using tasty lard.
Thats why I hardly eat FF anymore.
