Hotdish! Any flavor 🙂
mmm love me some hotdish!!
Iowa = pork
Shrimp and grits! Love the shrimp, not so much the grits though.
I love shrimp and grits, grits with cheddar cheese, or grits with eggs mixed in.
Since MN is basically known for hotdish and lutefisk(ewww!) I will pick something from back home. Fried catfish with hushpuppies and coleslaw. Also fresh seafood is great.
I don’t know. Seems like there has to be something, right? But I can’t think of anything. Come to think of it, how would I know what people in other places “don’t” eat? Then again, I have done my fair share of traveling. I guess I just don’t notice such things. Besides, everyone I hang out with is from somewhere else. Is that enough excuses for tonight?
I’ll have to say hotdish. In California we call those casseroles, but they are eaten more here. You can make anything into a hotdish!
Ok, if I’m honest… I’m really a Chicago girl, so it would be PIZZA! The best pizza in the country is in Chicago.
They also like to say that they’re known for Ribs, but I like Texas Ribs better.
OH… and Hot Dogs. You can’t go to Chicago without getting a Dog. And if you get Ketchup on it, they’ll know you’re not native. So don’t ever order ketchup on your dog, unless you’re six.
Also, steak. Chicago has some of the best steak around.
Not that I’m proud or anything…
What do they put on their dogs? I’m a mustard and relish kinda girl…that or plain!
On a Chicago Dog:
Mustard, Relish, tomato wedges, chopped onions, pickle spear, “sport peppers” (which are, I think, pepperoncini), and celery salt.
That pizza you sent me for Christmas…….was to DIE for.
I LOVE ketchup on my dogs. It’s all I put on them. I’ll have to pretend I’m six or send Josh or Christopher to order one for me.
That pizza was from Lou Malnatti’s – one of my two favorite Chicago pizza places. The other one is Aurelio’s – but Aurelio’s is more of an acquired taste, because their sauce is rather sweet.
I like ketchup on my hot dogs, too. I just don’t tell many people. 🙂
Most people have covered the “hotdish” and Jason mentioned lutefisk (I gag as I write that) but another thing that a lot of tourists like is our wild rice.
What about everything on a stick or is that just state fair??
Wow, hotdish, I never heard of it. I looked it up and it sounds like I would love it. Our state muffin is the corn muffin, our state dessert is Boston Cream pie, our cookie is the choccolate chip cookie because the first ones were made at The Tollhouse restaurant here in MA. I would have to say that Clam chowder is one of the most popular dishes here. Certainly seafood of all kinds is popular. I can’t forget Boston Baked Beans (always served on Saturday night) and Indian pudding.
