What American recipes would interest you?

(1/23) > >>

Hi Everyone,

I am an American and I teach English in Europe. My colleagues and I have decided that it would be nice to post a recipe for traditionally American or English food each week in our training center. This week, I posted one for NY cheesecake, but now I am a bit at a loss for what else might be interesting.  Any suggestions?


Regional recipes such as Boston Baked Beans or Kentucky Burgoo would be interesting, especially if you could follow it up with a discussion about the region- climate, influences etc.

Another option might be to pick a European or other region and post a recipe typical of that community living in the US- such as a typical Pennsylvania Dutch recipe- then you can have a follow on discussion.

Southern fried chicken
Cole slaw (maybe with various regional versions)
Corn bread
Maryland crab cakes
Barbecue (could have various regional versions)
Grits (could compare the hominy and non-hominy, non-hominy is *similar* to polenta)

...yes, I am from the South!

Gumbo and Jambalaya

Skyline Chili
Shrimp & Grits
Yankee Pot Roast
Frogmore Stew
Crawfish Pie
Catfish Stew
