All of my g'parents were born in Que., and my parents were born on farms that the north border of the farm was the U.S. /Canada line or international boundary.
Two of the dishes my mother would ocassionally make were maple syrup pie, and maple syrup dumplings.
I'm thinking these were originally Canadian dishes because one of the recipies had a french name.
For a batch of dumplings you start with a quart of maple syrup and you cook the dough in it.
Ah-yup it is sweet and mighty good and also very inflationary.

Home made maple syrup is scarce here in the west, no sugar maples. I love the stuff on corn bread which is actually relatively unknown here but very popular in the east.

We visited friends north of the border years ago and they had Raclette. Not sure on the spelling, It was a kind of large hot plate with individual little pans. There were platters of different meats and veggies and you cooked your own and melted Raclette cheese over the top. It was a sociable event and very enjoyable, I could never find Raclette cheese until recently I found some in Florida.
We had a memorable raclette meal beside a lake and a wood fire. Took a chunk of raclette cheese hook with a large fork, face melt with the heat of the wood fire, scrape the smoked melted cheese on potatoes accompanied with deer sausages, homemade dill and a super Toscan wine. The type of meal that you add some sausage to finish your potatoes, add some cheese to finish the potatoes and add some more sausages to finish the potatoes.....I had to roll to reach my bed.    Thanks the Universe , God or … for those good moments. Why me ? I dont know, but I am grateful.

So my Dad came from the Russia, mennonite background, most folk call them crepes we called them Russian pancakes, egg, flour, salt vanila, milk, a very runny batter. they were as big as a dinner plate,  mom would have a stack of them at each end of the table.(8 of us kids) we would put brown sugar and cinnamon, or rogers golden syrup.  Now we use cooked rhubarb sweetened with brown or white sugar. This was a meal not dessert.  digin1 digin_2

I believe the various food traditions are more regional than Canada-U.S., there are food traditions that vary from my home town to my wife's home town and they are only 30 miles apart.

Eatmore bars... Americans don't know what they're missin' :) 

More uniquely east coast Canadian, is the donair.  A spicy meat, shaved and served on flat bread (pita wrap, aka soft taco shell) with a sweet white sauce that is flavoured with garlic. Along with options like onion, lettuce and tomato.  A few restaurants sell the meal, but we make our own.



 




 


More current, a twist on the poutine dish out of Quebec, us east coasters serve up donairtine (pronounced doh-nair-teen).


 

Recipe is on my web site if anyone is interested.

The donair 8) They are not uniquely Canadian but boy are they good. Interesting that Eat More bars, molasses and peanuts, are not sold stateside and neither is Coffee Crisp which is one of the few candy bars I like.

Honestly, I have not looked for them for a while. I am not much of a sweets person, let alone peanut and peanut butter, so have not noticed. Now tomorrow I will be looking.....

Being that I live in the US now, one thing I miss in many restaurants is being able to get gravy for my french fries.In Canada it's normal but here only along the border.

A traditional Canadian dish served during Christmas is, Tourtiere. This is truly a 'comfort food' on any cold winter's eve.

Tourtiere is 'French Canadian' meat pie composed of a 50/50 mixture of ground beef and ground pork cooked up in bacon fat with diced onion and an array of spices.

If you enjoy horseradish as a condiment, try it on tourtiere....Angel food!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't discern one food for one country since the family is a mix of folks from both sides of the line. They eat what we eat. I couldn't come up with anything that stands out. Heck them Mainers like our Crosby molasses and King Cole tea, but we have to go to Maine to get molasses donuts made in New Brunswick. You can't buy a molasses donut in New Brunswick. But in our kitchens we made them, so there is nothing unique there. :D We both like soldier and yellow eye beans, those white beans in cans from the big canneries (Busch, Heinz and the like) ain't nothing we ate in a New Brunswick or Maine home. Next weekend I'm having my fill down in Patten, Maine as they cook them in pots placed in hot wood coals (bean hole beans) at the lumbermen's museum. They will be soldier beans, anyone want to bet otherwise? ;) I'm having my biscuit cooked on reflector ovens on the fire and molasses cake to. :D
Move'n on.

Being that my family background is also mennonite, I miss my mom's Hühnersuppe.
@rjwoelk  will understand. That is a German/Dutch chicken soup and other old country foods.

No my mom isn't gone but she's in BC and I'm in Maine.
