C Loaf

I ran across this in the grocery styore the other day. Hadn't had any in many a year. Threw a slice in a hot skillet til it started to brown, then added a couple of eggs. Scrambled everything together till the eggs were just cooked through. Mighty good with coffee and a couple slices of toast....Get the day started right!

I had to look it up. Pork stomach and pork skin. I'll have to take your word for it. I've never seen it around here.

Good one, Snip!!
C loaf is pork stomachs and intestines boiled to a thick consistency. Seasonings (typically salt, vinegar and some dried cayenne flakes if desired) are added. It is then poured in to a pan and chilled. It can then be sliced. The flavor is surprisingly mild and if the main ingredient is properly cleaned there will be little in the way of what Mrs. Hoot calls a terrible aroma. It is distinctly different in flavor from scrapple which employs organ meat and corn meal. Hmm....now I am hungry again!

I've had C-loaf but only once. Not too shabby but I prefer Brawn (Head Cheese as some folks call it)

I was able to read two different C-Loaf labels and neither contained intestines. Unless stomach includes intestines. The ingredients were stomach, water, skin, salt, spices and MSG.

Maybe other brands differ.

I would be concerned about eating ground up chitlins processed in a factory.

I would give it a try if it was more or less homemade in small batches.

Put a small glass of bourbon next to my plate to help get my courage up and the C-loaf down!
