If You Grew Up In Maryland, You Definitely Love These 10 Classic Dishes
Did you grow up in the Old Line State? If so, then you probably remember the following foods from your childhood, and beyond. Here are 10 classic dishes that nearly every Marylander loves.
1. Steamed Crabs
Maryland's official food is also an all time favorite. Summer isn't summer without an epic crab feast.
2. Crab Cakes
Speaking of crab, who doesn't love a ton of lump meat formed into a delectable mound? When crab cakes are on the menu in Maryland, that's what I'm ordering.
3. Smith Island Cake
This layered dessert originated on Maryland's Smith Island, and has since spread throughout the rest of the state. Order it at many local restaurants or even try your hand at making it yourself.
4. Maryland Crab Soup
There's nothing quite as comforting as a bowl of Maryland crab soup. This spicy food is great year-round.
5. Southern Stuffed Ham
If you grew up in Southern Maryland then you likely know stuffed ham from holidays like Christmas. Does your family make it a tradition?
The best way to cool off during summer is with a classic sno-ball. Top it with marshmallow for a creamy Maryland twist.
7. Thrasher's Fries
Ah, the memories of Ocean City as a kid. You couldn't go to the beach (and still can't) without purchasing a giant tub of Thrasher's. Top em with vinegar and you've got yourself a tangy and filling meal.
8. Fisher's Popcorn
Perhaps Ocean City's second most popular stop is Fisher's Popcorn. Whether you crave classic caramel or spiced Old Bay, this treat is impossible to stop eating.
9. Soft Shell Crab
Whether you love it or hate it, you've no doubt tried soft shell crab at least once. It can be a bit unnerving eating
almost the whole crab, but WOW is it flavorful and crispy.
10. Bergers Cookies
This Baltimore dessert cookie has gained fame with its soft and fudgy texture. It's nearly impossible to eat just one.
The list of Maryland foods could go on and on, but which do you remember most from your childhood? Let us know below!
