Today's Reason to Celebrate

November 9, 2014 is

National Scrapple Day

It’s National Scrapple Day! Scrapple, or pon haus, is similar in both composition and taste to British white pudding. Its name comes from the fact that it is composed of “scraps” of pork combined with cornmeal and spices. The mixture is formed into a mostly solid loaf, and then it is sliced and panfried before serving.

Did you know that scrapple is arguably the first pork food invented in America? It was created more than 200 years ago by Dutch colonists who settled near Philadelphia.

Scrapple is typically eaten for breakfast, topped with syrup or ketchup. In some regions of the United States, it is mixed with scrambled eggs. Enjoy National Scrapple Day!
