Wisconsin is famous for them. Get the beer battered (not breaded) ones for the best flavor, but the breaded ones are pretty good too.

I'm not sure what the North is, but Wisconsin is in the Upper Midwest, and is also famous for:

Cheese
Beer
Brats
Corn
Friday fish frys, especially haddock and walleye.

I can (should) only speak on my eperiences. NYCity is known for every food under the sun with ethnic food markets all over the 5 bouroughs. I will say there is nothing I remeber better than a slice of cheese pizza from so many of the pizzarias or the bagels of Brooklyn. Maine is my home now and we have a rich history of seafoods and chowdas, as well as previously stated the good old baked bean suppas at many churches and (insert community group here) Logdes put on on the weekends. We are also known for potatoes, blueberries, lobsta and a good many game animals like deer and moose. One of the great things about Maine is also the conversation that is always so matter of factly stated such as, Magine that, Wicked Good and cunnin, but the one that drives me nuts is when someone says doah yahd (door yard for the non-yankees) which I suppose means the door leading to the yard, but then again since I was not born here I am as they say from away. ;)

I waited for the Joisy guy to answer this, but enough is enough.

I'm right there with you! It is definitely a food group in my mind! I think gravy runs in my blood! If I am not feeling well, or I just need comfort food, and I don't feel like cooking, we make a KFC run so that I can get a large mashed potatoes and gravy!

I love gravy too. I love it on fries, meat, fried chicken, biscuits, etc. And I agree that it is a food group......but then again I also believe that mushrooms are a food group - my favourite in fact!

Oooooooooh! Me too! I could eat mushrooms all day long. In fact, I love adding mushrooms to my gravy sometimes!

P.S. Sorry to go off topic, but to bring it back, if I lived in the north I would definitely eat mushrooms and gravy! LOL

It's okay, Barbara, I do live in the North and I do eat mushrooms and gravy, as much as I possibly can!

Neither of my grandmothers really liked to cook. BUT, that said, I'm a repeat of some. New England boiled dinner (the meat being either beef or ham), tourtiere, pot roast, stewed chicken, pour mans' soup, boiled shellfish (lobster, clams, oysters, etc) with lots of butter and saltines.
