Scotland’s Haggis – A slightly odd-looking cuisine, haggis was originally cooked inside sheep stomachs. It consists of meat, oatmeal, onions, and spices.
England’s Yorkshire Pudding – Contrary to its name, Yorkshire pudding is a savory, bread-like side, composed of flour, eggs, and milk and served alongside roast beef and gravy.
Germany’s Bratwurst – A type of sausage, bratwurst is a staple of German barbecue.
France’s Pot-au-Feu – Literally translating to pot in the fire, pot-au-feu is a traditional stew containing steak, vegetables, and spices.
