SCRAPPLE - A Bold & Pungent Pennsylvania Meal

Today is National Cook Something Bold &  Pungent Day AND National Scrapple Day and I think it might be possible to combine the two in one meal.

First, It might help to know what Scrapple actually is, right? Well, it's kind of a Pennsylvania Dutch pork meatloaf made up of pork scraps, corn meal, flour and spices which is sliced and then fried.  Known also as "pon haus", Scrapple is a rural food phenomenon of the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. which was employed to make use of all the leftover pork not used elsewhere.

Scary, huh? Anyone else having visions of Spam here? I have to admit it doesn't sound that appetizing to me, but then I'm not a fan of Spam either. However, I have a friend from back East who says it's quite good if prepared properly and it certainly fits into the bold and pungent category, especially if you add some serious spices to it!

If you're adventurous and want to give it a try, here's a recipe for Scrapple from the Food Network.  As for me, I think I'll stick to my standard meatloaf and a martini!

Happy National Cook Something Bold & Pungent and National Scrapple Day!
