Late Nite Adobo

Typing out thoughts on a website… when the cravings hit you in the late nite…

by Bananaketchup



A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter…Blah, blah, blah. Grocery lists are overrated. It’s more fun to improvise and discover new foods to experience. Hey, who’s that sad glob of meat over there by the bologna? Why, it’s Mr. Scrapple! After seeing a mock scrapple cook-off on Ace of Cakes, my curiosity of this crazy blend of “pork trimmings cooked with cornmeal and seasonings” had been piqued. And now I see, fantasies come true.

Scrapple is very Spam-like, and my prep was the same with the slicing and the frying, although I found Scrapple to be much squishier than Spam. I toyed with the idea of adding some parsley for garnish to add color; but let’s be honest, this dish won’t win any beauty contests regardless. If scrapple was a baby, it would have a face that only a mother can love. So, with a little squirt of ketchup and a side of white rice, dinner is served. img_0508


The taste of scrapple is very familiar; as if all of the bad, Lipitor-provoking pork products were combined into one fiendish concoction: Delish. Crispy on the outside, somewhat mushy on the inside, it reminded me of my favorite bar food in Manila called sisig. And while my heart may have stopped a couple times, I’m sure it was just me falling foolishly in love with another guilty pleasure that I’ll secretly rendezvous with on special occasions. Scrapple-licous? Yes ma’am.
