When we were getting ready to celebrate Canada Day, I started thinking about what we could serve with a Canadian theme. So, I made a list of my favorite Canadian recipes and decided to share it with you too.
We’ve got a selection of main dishes and desserts here that are Canadian classics. If you like scrumptious food, you’ve come to the right place.
Here are some favorite Canadian recipes from here on Creative Cynchronicity:
Cretons de Quebec – This is a breakfast spread made from pork. That description doesn’t do it justice. It is slightly spicy and really tasty.
Nanaimo Bars – Delightful layered sweet squares!
Butter Tarts – Sweet, rich, tasty tarts similar to pecan pie without the pecans
Tourtiere – Delicious comfort food – a delicately savory spiced meat pie
More Canadian recipes from around the web:
Saskatoon berry pie filling and sauce from Food Meanderings – Saskatoon berries taste somewhat like a cross between cherries and blueberries. YUM!
Homemade beaver tails from XOXO Bella – If you’ve ever had an elephant ear and liked it, you’ll probably love beaver tails too. Fried dough with cinnamon and sugar? Yes please. My favorite way to eat them is with fresh lemon squeezed over it.
Donairs from Crave the Good – Donairs originated in the Middle East. They are sandwiches made of seasoned beef that has been cooked on a rotisserie and then shaved off and placed in a pita.
Pea soup from Carmyy – French Canadian split pea soup cooked with ham hocks. This is delicious comfort food for sure!
Confetti squares from My Organized Chaos – Peanut butter, butterscotch, and mini marshmallows come together to form these scrumptious sweet treats.
Blueberry grunt from Maritime Country Kitchen – A traditional dessert from Atlantic Canada. Blueberries plus dumpling dough – YUM!
Butter tart waffles from Food Meanderings – Butter tarts meet dessert waffles for a delightful dessert that are beyond delicious!
Quebec sugar pie from Our Happy Mess – A smooth creamy brown sugar pie, this version is made with maple syrup too!
Maple pudding from Food Nouveau – A baked pudding packed with maple syrup flavor.
Montreal bagels from Celebration Generation – You’re probably wondering what makes Montreal bagels different from New York bagels. Well, they tend to be smaller, thinner, denser, and slightly sweet. They’re DELICIOUS.
Date bars from XOXO Bella – Another classic Canadian bar. Date bars have a lovely oat crumble topping on them.
