A Dish for Every State?

Some dishes are so iconic of America, they bring us together at the table no matter where we live. I’m talking burgers, mac & cheese, pizza, French fries, apple pie, pancakes, etc. (Just ask Jeffrey Saad of United Tastes of America — he’s tried them all.)

But lately we’ve been wondering what dishes are unique to each state. If each state had to pick a dish that really defined it, what would it be?

Our Kitchens did a little research and came up with an interesting list of foods noteworthy to each state. Many are what you’d expect — Deep Dish Pizza in Illinois, BBQ Brisket in Texas, Peach Pie in Georgia, New Jersey’s Italian Subs.

The research found some curious dishes, too — Funeral Potatoes in Utah, Kansas’s Burnt Ends, Sauerkraut Balls in Ohio — not to mention some really odd-sounding ones. Burgoo in Kentucky? Chislic in South Dakota? Spam Musubi in Hawaii? (Apparently it’s a sushi-sized bite of grilled spam atop a block of rice, wrapped in seaweed. We can’t wait to try.)

We hope you enjoy exploring the list below as much as we have, but we also want you to join the conversation and cast a vote…

Vote for your state’s iconic dish using a poll we set up on Facebook. (You must be logged into Facebook and you’ll only be able to see the poll for the state you live in now.) If you don’t have a Facebook account, don’t fret… just leave your comments below.

Enjoy, and check back soon for the tallies. It will most certainly be an interesting conversation!
