Good 'Ole American Cuisine

As we all know, the United States is called the melting pot because it has always been a safe place of people from around the globe. When people move to a new area they bring with them many things, not the least of which is their country's unique foods. America is therefore home to some of the world's best and most varied foods. Not only are there foods that originate in other countries, but also a great many that first appeared here.

Here is a very small list of foods that first appeared in the USA


One of the most famous of American foods is that wonderful mystery meat SPAM.

Spamburger(This is the recipe on the back of the can)

1 12 ounce can SPAM Luncheon Meat 6 hamburger buns, split
3 tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing 6 lettuce leaves
2 tomatoes, sliced 6 1-ounce slices American cheese
6 onion slices  

Slice SPAM into 6 slices(about 1/4 inch thick). SautÈ SPAM over medium heat lightly browned. Spread mayonnaise on the buns. Layer the lettuce, tomato, SPAM, onions, and cheese on the bun. Makes 6 servings. I love SPAM and always have at least 5 cans in my room.
