November 9, 2020 – National Scrapple Day | National Roasting Month
Have You Ever Tried Scrapple For Breakfast? If Not Today Is The Day To Try Something New!
Welcome to November 9th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate adventures in the kitchen.
If you’re not from Philadelphia, you’ve likely never heard of Scrapple. This regional favorite was brought to Philly by German immigrants where it was popular with rural communities. Farmers butchered their hogs, and used most of the meat for sausages or bacon, but all of the remaining pig parts were made into scrapple. The traditional version was made only with meat, but American immigrants combined it with cornmeal or buckwheat, and formed it into a loaf. The loaf is sliced and fried, and typically served as a breakfast side dish. It’s National Scrapple Day, so why not try something different for breakfast. Go on, I dare you!
If cooking the Thanksgiving Meal is already stressing you out, one thing should ease your mind: roasting the turkey is the easiest part. And if you’re still not convinced, we are giving you all month to practice as November is National Roasting Month. This low and slow cooking method brings out flavor in meats and even vegetables and since it all goes together in one pan, you can prepare a delicious meal fast and let the oven do all the work. Start with meat or veggies and some simple seasonings such as parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Add salt and a layer of tin foil and your meal will be fork tender in only a few hours. The best part of roasting is the way your kitchen smells and the hardy meals will call your family to the table all on their own. During National Roasting Month try this easy way to add coziness to your kitchen.
