Odd Food of the south

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Found a story in USA TODAY

Some of the wierdest things that I have ever heard of, like the hamdog
Quote:
The dish, a specialty of Mulligan's, a suburban bar, is a hot dog wrapped by a beef patty that's deep fried, covered with chili, cheese and onions and served on a hoagie bun. Oh yeah, it's also topped with a fried egg and two fistfuls of fries.

This thing is not for the faint of heart...literaly

Sounds pretty tasty. As long as you don't make a habit of eating them, it doesn't like a big problem. I'd even go so far as to say that it doesn't compete with the aptly named "heartstopper," a delicacy of the area stretching between Philly and New York, which is a 12" long cheesesteak topped off with a mound of bacon, russian dressing, and fried eggs.

Never heard of it. Sounds deliciously life-ending.

if the whole thing were stuffed inside some chitlins, it'd be perfect.

Ah, Splinemodel beat me to it. Ooh, don't forget about the Fat Lady: cheesesteak with fries, mozzarella sticks, onion rings (IIRC) and hot sauce all squeezed into one torpedo roll. The first dish sounds great too.

I was talking to someone about getting season tickets to the (Durham) Bulls games this year, and we got into ballpark food. I said I loved baseball more for the hot dogs than the sport itself, and he looked at me kinda funny. "Hot dog? Not barbequed pork?" Mmmmm... vinegary.

All you need to do is drop the sub roll (bad, bad, evil carbs, doncha know) and you'd have a lovely Atkins diet treat.

Yankees don't know how to cook. Give me Texas BBQ and Cajun food and of course Mexican food.

The "Fat Lady" is nice as well, but I've only seen it at the Haven. The heartstopper, believe it or not, can be found a most good hoagie shops in Philly and Jersey. New York has its own share of excellent, high-performance sandwiches, but none offer quite the intimidation of the heartstopper.

Currently I'm in coastal FL (due southeast of Orlando) and there's not at all the level of independently owned, greasy-spoon establishments. It's a shame. However, there is one place near the house called "Longdoggers," which among other things serves footlong hotdogs. The Reuben-dog with chili is a good one.

Agreed, except for the Texas BBQ. IIRC, Texas BBQ is all beef and all "wet." I like pork and dry rub.

Not quite as calorie rich, but Ontario and Quebec have this french dish "putsin", which is french fries with cheese and brown gravy. Quite yummy.

Do you mean "poutine"? Or is "putsin" different?

If I am not mistaken, Steak and Shake has something like that.

I thought that Poutine meant prostitute? The fries with gravy and cheese is pronounced "Put-Sin", but I don't know how to spell it.

Poutine. Looks like the same thing. Maybe pronunciation differs depending upon where you are.

edit: yup. It's the same thing.

you said it...

You guys havent truely experienced life until you've had a couple of sacks of boiled crawfish straight from the boiler to the newspaper (those of you who have been to a real crawfish boil know what I'm talking about). It is quite possibly the best compliment to a icey Corona I've ever had.

I thought you guys from the bayou were at least partially familiar with French.

Perhaps we Yankees can't cook because we were too busy kicking ass.

Feh. You're from Texas. Don't even talk about the War of Northern Aggression.

I was mostly being colloquial, but the North did win the Civil War because of some important factors, so I guess a distressed reaction is appropriate. Of course, I'm an immigrant's kid so the real affection towards 19th century American affairs just isn't there for me, and I'm currently more pleased with what remaining resolution there is in the South towards state's rights and small government than I am with the sentiment in the North for larger government and greater control, but to think that it wasn't inevitable for the 19th century North to have won the war is to be an imbecile. There are plenty of treasures in the South, perhaps including the ones evident from this thread. There is no reason to get worked up over a war 150 years concluded. The South has changed since then, and for the better.

Oh dear, I'm having a bout of "liberal Californian who grew up in Alabama" cognitive dissonance.

Must defend homeland. My peoples are shitheads. Must defend homeland. My people are shitheads....

Well, at least they know how to make a proper barbeque, served with hushpuppies and and vinegar sauce. Mmmmmm, and some fat back loaded greens.......

Yeah... I must say though that South Carolina produces some good wet BBQ.

But then again... well then again, its South Carolina...

Amateurs.

Haven't you heard of deep fried Mars bars?

Yes, in Scotland they deep fry pizza, Creme Eggs and Snickers bars.

Can you guess which European country has the greatest rates of death by heart disease?









The answer is SCOTLAND

I had poutine for the first time last year, in Hong Kong. I've had it a dozen times since.

I always thought the american Civil War was referred to as "The Great Unpleasantness."

Also, "poutine" probably means both prostitute and the gravy fries. "Puttanesca" is a southern italian pasta sauce, its name being synonymous with the whores who made it from the scraps of foods they could scavenge.

Uh, where were we?

Hot chocolate by me.

4 ounce Valrhona dark chocolate
0.25 gallon full cream milk
4 ounce biodynamic cane sugar

Heat milk and sugar to just before it boils. Pour over the chopped chocolate and stir. Leave on kitchen table for 12 hours and then keep in the refrigerator for 24 hours (develops the flavors).

Heat gently and whip up 6 ounce double cream and serve with the chocolate. If you do the math you´ll end up with 200% of the fat (almost all saturated) and 50% of the carbs (almost all sugar) you´ll need for one day. Sometimes I drink this every day for a week.
