Top Ten Newfoundland Recipes.
Although you may never have had a hankering for a Figgy Duff or Toutons with molasses, they are part and parcel of our culinary heritage here in Newfoundland and hey, maybe you just don’t know what you’ve been missing. Just click on the title or on the photo to be taken to the individual recipe.
Fish and Brewis. A very old traditional Newfoundland recipe made from hard tack and salt cod. It's still an incredibly popular dish year round as well as at the holidays like Easter, Good Friday and Christmas Eve.
The Best Homemade White Bread - nothing says home baked comfort food goodness like a perfectly baked crusty loaf of homemade bread, fresh from the oven. This recipe is well over 40 years old and turns put perfectly every time.
Newfoundland Snowballs - the most searched for Newfoundland recipe on RockRecipes.com. Soft chocolate fudge balls with the goodness of oatmeal and coconut. These freeze exceptionally well and my kids actually prefer to eat them frozen, just like I did as a child.

These are the recipes that died off with my grandmothers and my great grandmother )we called her Meh-May) Most of my family were either Newfies or from Cape Breton NS. The recipes were kept closely guarded but they never shared but a few before they each passed. We just had New Year's with a Christmas Eve tourtiere and a New Year's Day tourtiere. Every time I try to make my meat pies, they are edible...good even, but not anywhere as good as Meh-may's. There was always a friendly and loving rivalry between the Marchand side and the Deagle/Daigle side of the family. Honestly, I think it was more about having to eat BOTH that excited my dad, and not really so much about which was better ...they were both awesome. He just wanted double the meat pie !!!! Thank you for giving me the recipes that I thought were lost forever. Thank you.

We grew up in Saskatchewan, Mom used to make Toutons (which we called Flapjacks). We would put homemade butter and corn syrup on them. Loved them. I just might try making these.

Is nanny a common word for grandmother in Newfoundland? My grandmother was born there and yes, we called her nanny. I loved her cooking and some of the stuff she baked are stuck in my memory, but not the name or recipe! There was a raspberry dessert she made that I have never seen since I was a little girl. I wish I knew what it was. It was delicious!
