Carleton Place Farmer’s Market Re-Invents the McGriddle

Standard

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.

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
