These 10 Iconic Foods In Michigan Will Have Your Mouth Watering

We Michiganders love to eat, there’s no denying it. It probably has a lot to do with all the cold, winter months that we are simply drawn to hearty, savory dishes. It’s as if we need that extra food to keep a tad warm when the weather gets bad.

Just take a look at some of our iconic dishes. Many of them are extra meaty, cheesy, or doughy. They’re the kinds of foods you might like to scarf down when you’re busy on the job in an automotive factory, or maybe your ancestors dug in when they worked in the mines in the UP. Many other dishes reflect the heritage of some of Michigan’s forefathers. Whatever the case may be, we have a feeling you have a deep appreciation for many of these dishes.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Not fair – we just ate. But we’re literally hungry all over again just looking at all this.
