Made it this morning (pan fried) with eggs and some berries and boy was it delicious. Haven't had for the longest time either. Really hit the spot!

So who else is a fan? Anyone else love this old Philly (Pennsylvania Dutch) tradition?

we have something very similar in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area called Goetta. Same thing except it uses steel cut barley instead of corn meal (scrapple is corn meal right?).

Yum, I like to put a slice on top of...anything.

According to Wiki, "Scrapple is made of hog offal, such as the head, particularly the heart, liver, and other scraps, which are boiled with any bones attached (often the entire head)." Mmmmmm....sounds good right lol?

Lived in the Philly Area all my life...Scrapple with eggs, wheat toast, and coffee is small slice of heaven. I could eat it everyday but I only do it on Saturday mornings as a treat.

Maybe I'm just twisted, but i love all of the "nasty" things. It's just that great hairy/chewey consistancy that does it for me. When I move down to Virginia next year I sure am going to miss it.

Darren: guess what, it’s eaten in Va. also. I’m from DC and I grew up on it. In fact, I think I am going to buy some this weekend because of this thread. Mmmmmm, healthy or not, I love that stuff. I don’t know about the origin of it per say, because I have heard it told differently, but I know all my relatives on the east coast and down south know about it. Here in Wisconsin, I’m not so sure. I have to always explain what it is but it is sold here.:banana:

I went to school in southern Ohio and I've had Goetta. I've also had Scrapple.

I prefer Goetta over Scrapple but nothing compares to a properly prepared Haggis!

I used to live about 40 miles north of the Rapa plant in Bridgeville Delaware. Every fall, the town has an 'apple Scrapple' festival complete with a 5k race.

I like mine with syrup.

I'm from Alaska and am unfamiliar with your esoteric southern ways. What are a scrapple and how does one go about preparing such a beast?

PS: Fried with eggs and berries = YUM!
PSS: Hog offal and other scraps = BLEH!
