Scrapple

My buddy at work has been going on for years.... yes, YEARS... about how Scrapple is god's gift to humans.

He always talks about how great it is, and how if there were only one food left on the planet he'd hope it was Scrapple, blah blah blah...

Anyways, he once got me to try another of his favorite foods: Peanut Butter and Hot Dogs

I must say, it was pretty good....

So the other day I caved. After 8 years of hearing
how great Scrapple is, I bought me a package



So I look at the ingredients: Pork Snouts, Pork Hearts, seasoning.... ummmmm what the hell have I gotten myself in to?

Anyways, I said I'd try it, so what the hell... Grab some Eggs... if Im gonna eat it, I'm gonna go all out....

So I cut open the bag, and take a sniff...... hey, not bad.... smells like sausage!!!

Im getting hungry smelling it, so I slice me off a nice big slab. He says he cuts it length-wise, so I did the same....



And into the frying pan it goes.....


Im not quite sure how to cook it, but it smells like sausage, so Im going to cook it like sausage.... Once the one side gets nice and done, I'll give it a flip...


Then I fried me up an egg.... runny yolk... thats how I roll.... Slice of cheese melted on the egg, then toast a piece of bread afterward in the pan.....

I was too chickenshit to just take a bite out of the scrapple, so I tossed the egg on top of it....

This way, I could eat the egg and the scrapple at the same time, and if the scrapple was disgusting, hopefully the taste of the egg and cheese would counteract it a little so it didn't make me puke or anything.....

Anyways, here goes nothing....



Well I must say.... it did taste an awful lot like sausage, and after a few bites, I did indeed start eating it alone without the egg and cheese.....

However, I'm not sure I cooked it right, or if this is just a property of scrapple, but while the outside was nice and crusty, the inside was quite mushy.... it was a pretty big turn off... i mean, it's like biting into a sausage patty and the inside is just mush... what the fuck is that?

But all that said......

It couldn't have been too bad...
