Carleton Place Farmer’s Market Re-Invents the McGriddle


Remember the McGriddles?

I can only assume that some of you have never savoured the wonderment that was the McGriddle. Let me enlighten you. Is that egg? Why yes it is, and bacon too. But wait–they didn’t add…yes they did, yes they did indeed. They added cheese.


And then, then my friends, they wrapped it in a sumptuous pancake bun! As your taste buds try to process that amazing piece of information, it hits them…the syrup nugget. It announces itself with a burst of confectionery grandiosity the likes of your which your palate has never seen.

Are you still with me?

You know the feeling. You got up early to go shopping at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market and you just can’t wait to fend off those hunger pains. What to do?


You can feast on Ken Strangway’s yummies, or you can try a Backwood’s Breakfast made by local High School student Aedden Thirwall Wiebe. That’s right he re-invented the McGriddle. Egg, bacon, cheese, on toasted bread with a side of syrup hand made by Aedden. He subbed the manufactured pancakes for fresh market bread (he also offers gluten-free options), and instead of infusing it like the McGriddle— he just added an explosion of syrup on the side.


Unable to decide between breakfast and lunch? This sweet and smoky sandwich satisfies both cravings, and it has made its way into a permanent Saturday morning favourite.
