Bannock is one of my favourite things to eat. It has been adapted by First Nations people and become a traditional food that’s far more versatile than many people may realize. More than just a side or bread, it can be part of an entree. Add a scoop of chili and some shredded cheese and you have a “taco”; slice it and use it as a bun for a hot dog or hamburger. I love making bannock for dinner and adding pizza toppings.
Bannock can be time-consuming to make, so I always make a big batch to have leftovers as a snack. It makes a great breakfast, plain or with jam!
My favourite way to use bannock is in this traditionally inspired dish called Bannock Benedict. It’s a great way to start your day. Enjoy!
