A fun collection of 15 Belgian recipes and Belgian inspired recipes to share with your family. Learn about Belgium’s rich gastronomical history while creating delicious meals.
Can you believe it – Belgium has made it to the quarterfinals of the 2104 FIFA World Cup! I can’t believe we are still here. I’m representing Belgium in the Multicultural Bloggers World Cup for Kids Series. Next up they must defeat Argentina to make the semi-final round. From what I can tell, Belgium has had a great run so far and hopefully that can keep it up.
So far in this series we’ve made Belgian S’mores, Liege Belgian Waffles, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, and No Bake Biscoff Pie. Today I thought I’d head to the internet to collect a few traditional Belgian recipes along with a few Belgian-inspired recipes. Many of these posts also have fun information about Belgium as well. I tried to keep the recipes as kid friendly as possible along with adding a few that would be fun to try even if not everyone loves them.
