NikkiOh my beloved scrapple. I miss scrapple in the mornings with my grandma at the helm of the kitchen.

I was in Philly about two weeks ago for my birthday. Went to see Frida Kahlo and the Rodin Museum among other things. I don't know your schedule, but check out the chamapagne brunch at the Museum of Art. It was decent.

claudia (cookeatFRET)i just wanna see you make your own scrapple. from scratcharooni. now THAT'd be cool... and quite the post!then you could send me some. cause i'd surely eat it.

now the dried beef? not feeling so good about that... but it's drowned in that buttery and milky gravy so i wouldn't turn that down either... cept i'd use bacon instead of that canned stuff. bacon gravy is just amazing stuff...

Su-LinWow, so that's what scrapple is! I've heard about it but have never seen it up close until now! Is scrapple available outside Philly?

katDid you happen to see the Ace of Cakes Episode where they had a Scrapple Cooking Contest ala Iron Chef? They also made a cake that looked like scrapple. I'm not so sure about it myself but creamed chipped beef on toast on the otherhand was always a favorite growing up.

DonaldSharon - thanks. You can actually order cheesesteaks online from Philly. It's expensive and probably not so good. Mybe you should just go there. See Ben Franklin and whatnot. ;)

Nikki - Scrapple is the best! We will have to check out the museum brunch. We were looking for some things to do. I lived there all my life and have seen everything, so I have to yield to the wife and let her pick.

Claudia - I don't think I'll be making any scrapple from scratch. I personally don't want to handle what goes into it. :| But C, the dried beef is what gives SOS it's appeal. At least it's not Spam or Deviled Ham from a can. This was a jar. I'll eat a steak for you this weekend!

Bren - I love my swine!

Pixie - We'll have to start working on it, huh?

Val - It is!

Su-lin - Are you finished globetrotting? B) Scrapple is scarcely available outside of Philly. I was surprised to find it here in Georgia. I bet you could get it online.

Kay - I didn't catch that episode, but I will look for a repeat. That sounds crazy. Yeah, I always loved creamed chipped beef. Now my wife loves it.

KimOh my gosh I am speechless and jealous, beyond words. :)Going to college in that neck of the woods, I developed a fondness for Chipped beef on toast. I even get mine shipped from an Amish meat man to me in Charleston when I think to order it. You can keep the scraple, but you just posted my most favorite breakfast/lunch/dinner/late-night snack in the whole wide world. And then we have a true cheese-steak,if you were closer I would be right over for some. Have fun and make sure to hit the farmers market in Radnor for the Amish Dried beef.

KimI know Donald, I just posted a comment yesterday. But I have insomnia and want a late night breakfast, and your food is it. 3 slices of Chipped Beef on toast and I would sleep like a baby for the rest of the night.

We Are Never FullHI!! I love this post!! Being a Philly girl myself, it really took me leaving my hometown to realize just how special it really is. Yes, we may have one of the worst obesity problems in the USA, but when you have scrapple and cheesesteaks at your fingertips, you'd be fat too!

I did a post on two Philly faves - scrapple (as you did) and also Taylor Pork Roll. You may enjoy it since you're a Philly guy originally: http://www.weareneverfull.com/dont-pork-this-roll-or-scrap-this-scrapple-the-dirty-culinary-pride-of-south-jerseyphilly/

Oh, and don't show it to your wife!! If she's already hatin' on scrapple, she'll probably not want to be around it ever again after reading it! Great post. I'm going to look around some more.
