My Scrapple Recipe

 


   I have had people ask me how I make my Scrapple so I thought I would share the recipe.  Keep in mind this is not the authentic Scrapple, but something that tastes very similar to it and is much easier to make. 😉  For me, Scrapple is comfort food and something that my mother and I used to enjoy as a special treat.  I searched for years to find a recipe that was easy and had the same flavor profile and finally hit on this one.


Brown 1 1/2 pounds of sausage in a large saucepan.  You can use plain ground sausage or Sage sausage (which will save you a step).  Do not drain the fat!


While that is browning get your other ingredients ready.  2 2/3 cup water, 1 cup cornmeal, 1 t. salt, 1 to 2 t. sage depending on how much sage you like (omit if using sage sausage), and 1/4 t. of pepper or a bit more to taste.


Add your water and seasonings and the bring to a boil.

Slowly mix in your cornmeal and then simmer it for about 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes.

Put the mixture into a parchment or wax paper lined loaf pan and then refrigerate until cold and firm.

Slice it up into about 1/2 inch slices and fry up until browned in a skillet.  You will not need to put oil in the pan since there is already oil from the sausage.  Enjoy!

  4. I had heard of this before. I think it is a Southern recipe but I didn't know how to make it. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Thanks for the great memory. My Aunt used to make fried cornmeal mush (your recipe without the sausage). It was one of my favorite breakfasts at her house. I'm going to get some sausage the next time there's a sale and try this.

    Am in full crash mode today. Sipping gingerale. The call with my new doctor yesterday was amazing and he had some suggestions for supplements for me. Also more labs to run. Yippee.
    Will write more later
