Harry Potter: 10 Foods From The Wizarding World Muggles Can Make

From the enormous feasts in the Great Hall of Hogwarts to the delicious desserts of Honeydukes in Hogsmeade, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is stuffed to the gills with decadent and scrumptious meals shared by wizards and muggles alike. Some come with magical properties, and some are just warm comfort foods with a wizardly flavor, but all are desired by fans of the books and movies.
Fans don’t have to be sorcerers or shell out hundreds of bucks for a trip to Universal Studios to get a taste of the magical world. In fact, there are plenty of recipes from Hogwarts and beyond that even the greenest Muggles can make.

Chocolate Frogs


Chocolate frogs are one of the first magical treats Harry and the audience are introduced to in The Sorcerer’s Stone, and their recipe is deceptively simple. While the trading cards of famous Wizarding World sorcerers might only be available as a theme park souvenir, there is a way fans can make these treats in their own kitchens.

Corned Beef Sandwiches


Sometimes the simple option is always the best, and if Hogwarts Express passengers don’t have enough galleons to buy out the entire dessert trolley, it’s nice to bring a mom-made lunch along for the journey. Ron Weasley might not have a taste for corned beef, but that’s a lunchtime favorite available even in the states.

Harry’s Birthday Cake


Everyone deserves a slice of cake for their birthday, even wizards. And while it’s not one of the most magical entries on the list, it’s a very loving gesture from everyone’s favorite half-giant Hagrid. The image of Hagrid giving Harry the misspelled birthday cake is a moment no true fan of the series could ever forget.

Butterbeer


A tall, frosty glass of Butterbeer is easier to come by than one might believe. In fact, many soda brands have even attempted their own spin on the butterscotch-flavored beverage. And, as marvelous as the Wizarding World’s treat is, it can be made much cheaper and easier at home.

Treacle Tarts


One of Harry’s personal favorites might be more familiar to British audiences than they are to others, but a treacle tart is a sticky treat that will satisfy any sorcerer’s sweet tooth. More of a pie than an actual tart, there are dozens of variations on this recipe only a Google search away.

Pumpkin Pasties


If there’s one treat that frequently appears in the Wizarding World as much as butterbeer or Bertie Botts’ Every-Flavor Beans, it’s pumpkin pasties. A favorite of Cho Chang, these hand-sized pumpkin pies are a magical delight and will definitely be a hit next Halloween or Thanksgiving.

Bouillabaisse


Thanks to Fleur Delacour and her academy’s visit during the Tri-Wizard Tournament, a healthy helping of French cuisine was introduced to the Hogwarts halls. Even Ron gives this shellfish stew a taste in The Goblet of Fire, although he’s a bit slow on the uptake of the name.

Full English


A Full English – or simply English Breakfast – is a plate full of individual breakfast foods all of which are at least mentioned at some point somewhere on a Hogwarts table. Dishes including eggs, bacon, rolls, sausage, black and white pudding, and kippers all make up a balanced breakfast for wizards in training.

Haggis


If ever there was a meal at Hogwarts that most would stay away from, it’s the Maggoty Haggis featured at Nearly-Headless Nick’s Deathday party in the second novel. Even without the writhing worms and maggots that the Hogwarts ghosts can only barely tastes, haggis is an acquired taste.

Shepherd’s Pie


One of the most recognizable pub dishes also makes an appearance at Hogwarts. Like so many dishes on the list, the shepherd’s pie is commonplace in most U.K. settings, no matter their proximity to the Wizarding World.
