These 7 Unusual Meals Are Just Another Dinner To A Delawarean
Delawareans grow up eating seafood fresh off of the boat, locally raised chickens, and vegetables right from the garden. Why is it, then, that we’ve got such strange food tastes? These iconic Delaware dishes are favorites throughout the state, but to outsiders, they may seem just a little bit strange. When was the last time you ate something on the below list?
1. The Bobbie
An entire thanksgiving meal, plus mayo, on a roll. Cold. You can't beat it... the Gobbler from wawa has nothing on Delaware's most famous sandwich.
2. Scrapple and Egg Sandwiches
We don't even want to know what's in scrapple... but we'll tell you it's "everything but the oink". Regardless, we'll eat it extra crispy, with eggs, on toast.
3. Deerhead Dogs
Deerhead dogs look soooo gross... but when you combine mustard, onions, and Deerhead's secret sauce, something magical happens.
Yes, there are still a few places in Sussex County with muskrat on the menu. Southern Grille of Ellendale is probably the most famous of these rural restaurants serving up this Delaware tradition.
5. Slippery Dumplings
When we make chicken and dumplings, our dumplings are flat... like noodles. Those round dumplings are just not right.
6. Squid Ink Pasta
There are so many eateries at the beach that serve up squid ink pasta that Delawareans won't even blink an eye when they see it on the menu.
Of course, Goulash is found in plenty of places, but you know you're at a Delaware party when someone makes this dish for the crowd. Spaghetti sauce, pasta and ground beef combine to make an interesting meal.
What’s your favorite iconic Delaware food? Personally… I’ll skip the strange stuff and stick to our best Boardwalk foods. Particularly when it’s the middle of Winter…I’m really missing out on
Thrasher’s fries, Gus and Gus fried chicken, and the other Boardwalk staples.
