the mystery of its origin nor did it state that it was or wasn't made out of dog meat; ha-ha! Anyway, not that it looked very appealing, I was a little bit interested in finding out what this "entree" was.
Well, come to find out it is made from pork trimmings and scraps. The
scrapple is basically a mishmash of pork scraps combined with spices,
cornmeal and flour. This mushy block of trimmings, breading, and
seasoning is then formed into a loaf of some sorts. It is not a very
solid loaf of meat or whatever, but it is together enough to be sliced
Now, when I say trimmings and pork scraps, I'm not talking about premium
cuts here! Scrapple is typically made from hog heads, livers, hearts,
and other miscellaneous parts that you normally wouldn't want to eat;
yikes! Anyway, I've read enough about this crap today. If you would like
to learn more, go here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrapple
It was entertaining to read other people on the Internet trying to
describe Scrapple. For example, one person was like: "It is a bunch of
pig junk with brains and stuff all mixed together to form a less solid
Spam." LOL! Hey, I've got an even better description of Scrapple that I
found online... The person basically said that Scrapple is all the crap
that wasn't good enough to make it into the hot dogs, bologna, cat food,
and dog food. Yeah, I'm real hungry now; thanks!
