Jiggs Dinner


  • 1 whole chicken, turkey, moose roast or other meat product.
  • 1 cup yellow split peas.
  • 6-8 medium potatoes.
  • 6-8 carrots.
  • 1 medium turnip (peel and slice).
  • 1 medium cabbage (cut in wedges).
  • Slices of slightly stale bread.
  • Whole onion.
  • Ground pepper.
  • Salt, spices (thyme, basil or rosemary), & butter.
  • 1-2 pieces of salt meat.


  1. Prepare stuffing by soaking slightly stale bread in water. Squeeze to remove excess water. Add melted butter, salt, black pepper and spices (thyme, basil or rosemary).
  2. Prepare chicken or meat, lightly salt. Place stuffing inside chicken, excess can be wrapped in foil. In a roasting pan, place chicken and add water. Cook on 350 F, lightly baste and add an onion for flavour.
  3. Soak salt meat overnight, drain and place in large cooking pot. Tie peas in cloth bag (locally referred to as “peas pudding bag”); however, a mason jar with a few holes punched at the top will also be sufficient. Put peas in pot with salt meat. Cover meat and peas with water. Heat to boiling, cover and simmer for 2 hours.
  4. Prepare vegetables. Small carrots and potatoes may be left whole, larger ones are to be cut in half. Slice turnip and cut cabbage into wedges. After meat and peas have cooked for 2-2.5 hours add vegetables and cook until tender, adding the cabbage last.
  5. Remove peas from bag, place in bowl and mash with butter and black pepper to make peas pudding.
  6. Remove salt meat and slice. Remove vegetables and place on platter and serve.

Sean and Danielle are a father/daughter duo bringing select Newfoundland foods to the world. Whether you are familiar with the products and know exactly what you want or are wanting to try a little of everything; we have put together “B’y Da Box” for your convenience.
