A Trip Across Canada – Yummy Treats

I had a special request from a reader to write a post about the foods that Canadians eat. In doing my research for this post, I discovered that we have some pretty interesting names for some of the specialty food that is unique to us. I compiled a list of fun foods that have their history in Canada. I tried to include links that had a bit of information about the history of the recipe. Enjoy having a look at and or trying some of these creatively named recipes.

What recipes are native to where you live? I would love it if you would share your recipes (or links to them) in the comments.
