A favorite in both Belgium (especially the area of Flanders) and France are meatballs (boulettes)with tomato sauce. 

What is Quiche?  There are many recipes but they all have one thing in common - the crust. 

What is a praline?

    "white chocolate and praline cheesecake"
    • a crisp or semicrisp candy typically consisting of butter, brown sugar, and pecans.

Both the Belgians and the French make pralines but they are different. See Recipe links.

The Bruges’ swan, or het brugsch swaentje in Belgian, is a variety of Belgian chocolate praline that has been made since 2006.  The pralines in Belgium are made with chocolate. Belgium is rich in chocolate history. 

Pralines are also very popular in Louisiana.  Brought over to the US from France.

Kebabs aka Kabobs are popular in Belgium and France
