Thank you

List your favorite home state recipe/food staple, none of those stupid maps where people vote, just real local folks ideas on whats good.

Originally from the Bluegrass State, lots of good eats there, and I know we have several KY brethren here on the board, so I'll leave out some of the others for those folk to post.

For me the childhood memory is a Fried Bologna Sandwich, simple, tasty, hearty, satisfying.

Anyone with KY background knows it starts with Kerns White Bread, real beef bologna, if desired an onion, and real Mayo. You know to add Grippos, Hussmans or Charles chips, a dill pickle spear and a ice cold small bottle of soda or sweet tea...

Fried Baloney Sandwich Recipe: Ingredients:

* 2 Slices Baloney, Thick cut, each slice lightly scored at the noon, 3pm, 6pm and 9 pm positions {prevents cupping of the meat}

* 2 Slices Bread, White * Onion, Sweet, Thinly sliced

* Mayonnaise, enough for spreading


* Heat cast iron pan til good and hot

* Place baloney in un-oiled pan

* Cook til nicely browned

* Spread a skift of mayonnaise on each slice of white bread

* Add thinly sliced sweet onion, some folks like it on the top, some like it on the bottom. Me I’m a top but if you’re a bottom that’s alright too.

* Add fried baloney

* Compact everything into the classic sandwich format

* Voila! Now you’re ready to eat one the fried baloney sandwich.

New Jersey had a Great breakfast sandwich- Fried Taylor ham, fried egg, American cheese on a fresh Kaiser roll.

They were delicious and sold every where.

Smoked salmon and Dungeness crabs.

Oh, and tartar sauce is the appropriate condiment for French fries. When I moved here, I went to Bob's Burgers and Brew in Lynden. The fries came with a bowl of tartar sauce. I shrugged my shoulders and tried it. It's pretty good.

My adopted home state (Texas). Before moving here in the 90s, I thought BBQ was cooking at medium to high temps on a gas grill and smothering meat with BBQ sauce.

Brisket is my favorite Texas food. It's a huge hunk of meat so 99% of the time I get it at restaurants instead of cooking myself for 8 to 14 hours. James Beard Foundation Award winner, Aaron Franklin, from Austin, Texas, has a great video on smoking brisket:

Cherry pie from Traverse City and fresh caught salmon out of the Great Lakes

I put the salmon in a pan with a little salt and lemon slices, skin down. Give it about 3 min or less and eat. Same thing with a grill except I lay down some tin foil under the fish.

Brisket is pretty dang good if done by a skilled person.

I’ll also add good homemade tamales with chili con carne.

From my Home state of KY (Louisville): the Hot Brown. An open-faced sandwich of turkey and bacon, covered in Mornay sauce and baked or broiled until the bread is crisp and the sauce begins to brown.

From my adopted state of NC. Eastern Carolina BBQ. A big pile of pulled pork BBQ, a bottle full of vinegar based sauce, a side of slaw, and basket full of hush puppies with some Texas Pete (made in NC) hot sauce. Yum.

I Like Guns and stuff

Oklahoma Frito Chili Pie.

(Not actually a pie)

Chili, Fritos, onion, shredded cheese, dollop of sour cream.

Optional: jalapeños, Hatch Chilies, hot sauce.

The chili should already have chopped bacon in it.

OH, and the Oklahoma Onion Burger, from the Great Depression years.
