sausage and hot dogs and scrapple are all made from scraps and trimmings of the pig. scrapple alone owns the name, but sausage and scrapple loaves are said to utilize every part of the pig, with the exception of its squeal.:) the flavor of these sausages and loaves largely comes from the filler (cornmeal for scrapple) and the blend of seasonings used. when a slice of scrapple is pan fried, it emerges as a crisp, crusty on the outside, somewhat spicy pork meat, with a soft, smooth interior, the consistency of a pate. a bold, but mild, soft and smooth, yet crusty, pork loaf that can be absolutely indescribably scrumptious to the palate. or not....

Beautiful description, Vit. I ran my post past DH, whose parents still reside in PA, and he agreed, with the addition of what he thought were bread crumbs. Your explanation of the corn meal completes it. I still won't eat it.

Not that there's anything wrong with scrapple...

I am sure it is delicious to many...
My dad is Penn. Dutch, and I grew up with all of these things around in addition to other P. D. Dishes , etc. Lebanon Bologna is a comfort food for me!! As far as scrapple goes, I leave that for others to eat.

Do love, and will willingly consume, the Lebanon Bologna! DH's parents have not delivered any for awhile.

I, too, will leave the scrapple for anyone else. Not that there's anything wrong with scrapple...

Sorry, Vit, trying to be PC! Along with saying I probably would not eat it.
