What American recipes would interest you?

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?

Thanks

mechtilde:
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.

buvezdevin:
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!
