Scrapple (Mid-Atlantic)

In the Mid-Atlantic states including Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware, a traditional food of the Pennsylvania Dutch is easy to track down: scrapple. It’s made by combining pork scraps and trimmings with cornmeal and seasonings, blending it into a mush, forming it into a loaf, letting it congeal, then slicing and pan-frying before serving. Don’t knock it until you try it: the first recipes date back to the 1600s and it’s been perfected over the years, so it’s pretty tasty. It’s also nothing short of beloved: there’s even an annual scrapple festival
