    Fabulous! Are you from Indiana? Any insights into local ingredients or regional dishes? I actually have a book of recipes, but there's nothing that stands out as being particularly local unfortunately.

    Crab and artichoke dip

    1 cup mayo
    1 cup sour cream
    1 package of cream cheese (put in microwave to soften)
    1 lb of crab meat (I use the fake kind) use food processor to finely cut
    little bit of salt and pepper
    1 can of Artichoke hearts (drain well) and finely chop in processor
    mix them all together and put into a pan or pirex (sp)
    Bake at 350 until golden brown.
    Serve with tortilla chips, or crackers.
    feed about 6-8 people.
    Because this turns out to be a huge favorite, I always make a second batch. I divide it so I get some to keep and then take the rest to the party.

    For Indy you might want to look up some Amish food, or corn. I play a lot of ball in Indy but there is a Micky Ds and taco bell on every few corners.

    That is one sick dip - sounds great.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Ahem. Might I remind all you good people that the Giants actually play and train in New Jersey? That's right. Jersey. They spend all their time on the west bank of the Hudson. Eli Manning? Lives in Hoboken.

    Therefore, kindly get your minds out of Fifth Avenue and into the gutter.

    Thank you for your support.

    Jersey Breakfast

    A popular breakfast sandwich in the region made with pork roll is known as the Jersey Breakfast,[6][7][8] a "Pork Roll, Egg, and Cheese", or a "Taylor Ham, Egg, and Cheese." A Jersey Breakfast always contains pork roll, typically served with american cheese on a hard roll or on a bagel. It is a staple of many delis, diners, bakeries, and breakfast spots in New Jersey.

    If ignorance is bliss, I'm overjoyed.

    I know

    The only thing we do differently is to use Mexican or Italian sausage from the local ethical butcher (which also sells excellent locally made tortilla chips), and just squeeze it out of the casings; otherwise we follow it to the letter. I keep it on the kitchen counter in my plug-in fondue pot, so we end up grazing on it all afternoon.

In 1910 it was described as "a food article made of pork, packed in a cylindrical cotton sack or bag in such form that it could be quickly prepared for cooking by slicing without removal from the bag."
    But Spam, bologna, salami, summer sausage and Canadian bacon are all entirely different products.

    Why substitute when you can have the real thing?

    They don't ship to Canada and I don't think you can ship anything that requires refrigeration over the border anyway.

    Hmmmm...well, perhaps you can make Texas Wieners instead.

    I've dug into my library and found a few inspirations from American Sandwich, Cooking USA and Cookout USA, which each feature a dish from every state.

    For New Jersey, we have:
    • (drum roll!) New Jersey-style Pork Roll (aka Taylor Ham) Sandwich
    • Saltwater Taffy
    • Jersey Dogs (boil the dogs with celery salt, then grill, serve with standard m/k/r)


    For New York:
    • The New York Reuben (I actually use this version of Russian dressing on another NY-inspired sandwich)
    • Cheesecake
    • Spiedies (various meats marinated in Italian flavours then grilled)


    For Massachusetts:
    • Banh Mi (also known as a Vietnamese sub in Boston, apparently) - I make this often but wouldn't consider it appropriate for the Patriots!
    • Clam Chowder
    • Smoked Turkey (um, no)


    For Indiana:
    • Midwestern Pork Tenderloin Sandwich (basically it's breaded, with hamburger type toppings)
    • Hoosier Meat Loaf (has oats, green pepper and allspice in it, mix of pork and beef - if I was going to do meatloaf, I think I could do better )
    • Beer Can Chicken (would seem ideal, if I ate chicken or drank beer)

    Gotta say, that Pork po boy looks yummy!

    Lots of breaded tenderloin sandwiches there. Can't say they'd my my choice.

    No, not from Indiana, sorry. I saw an article about the contest in a newspaper yesterday and thought that it was a fun way to showcase local food to a broader audience.

    Sounds like you have a great menu planned...happy eating!

    Only one food goes on the table at our place on Super Bowl Sunday....CHILI

    This year it will be this chili....http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/g...ipe/index.html

    Made this tonight and it's extra good. It's complex in it's flavors and just the right bit of heat. Word to the wise though...you need a BIG pot to cook this in, as it makes at least 12 servings. Which makes it great if you are having a crowd over. Highly Recommended
