Scrapple & Egg Sandwich

The older I get the more I tend to think of various things, sometimes they are things one should never see being made. Laws is one of them, but I’ll pass on discussing that one and save it for another post some time down the line. The other is referred to in the South as Chitlins. While I have never had chitlins, let me just say this about Chitlins. I am told that Chitlins has such an aroma when being cooked, they could smell up the whole country. What are they you ask? Boiled and fried hog intestines. They say they are delicious if you can forget what they are.

“Ah’ll have another plate of them chitlins.”

Now coming from PA and Amish country, we do have a breakfast meal up north that if you knew how it was made, well, let’s just say some people would not eat it. It is known as Scrapple. Scrapple is made by mashing up pork scraps including the trimmings and then mix it with cornmeal and usually buckwheat flour and spices. Once mixed, the mush is formed into a semi-solid congealed loaf, and slices of the scrapple are then pan-fried. Usually served as a breakfast food but can be eaten at any time during the day.

Thought I’d share those tasty treats with you today but before I go, let me leave you with a word from the south (I gotta get you smiling and/or laughing before I go) – a word that was usually said in front of a judge:


“Ahdin know the gun was loaded, Judge!”

Y’all have a nice day now, ya, hear and come back real soon.

Until next time!
