2x Homemade Meatballs with mashed potatoes &carrots (made with butter, milk, eggs, nutmeg...) with a onion dressing sauce.
One of the most popular meals in Belgium is a potato-based side dish known as stoemp. It consists of mashed potatoes enhanced by the addition of carrots. They are boiled, mixed, and then puréed with mashed potatoes.
Stoemp has been present in Belgian cuisine since the 19th century, and it is believed that it was developed during the times of hardship when meat was scarce, and leftover food was used to prepare new, tasty meals.
Belgians prefer to eat stoemp alongside sausages, but it is also often served as an accompaniment to chicken, pork, lamb, and even meatballs.
