https://finance.yahoo.com/news/17-american-foods-foreigners-completely-194802134.html

I saw a Facebook post similar to this article and thought this would make some fun conversation here.

There were some notable differences between this article I found online and the one on my Facebook page which, on my phone is only linkable to Facebook and offers no url, otherwise I'd share that one instead.

This article mostly notes junkfood. There is a big movement going on here with people turning their nose up at all junkfood so there is that. The other article mentioned foods like chicken and waffles, grits, and peanut butter and jelly in the same jar.

And root beer!? I just can't wrap my head around that one!

In addition to this topic of conversation I also wanted to ask what foods do you expect you guys consider normal that foreigners would think is disgusting?

Also the etymology of the word biscuit suggests we in the US are using the word correctly while you guys are saying cookie wrong.;)

Anyways just a bit of light-hearted fun. I look forward to reading what you have to say.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

For the record, I fucking hate biscuits and gravy, grits, chicken and waffles and most casseroles. And while I love strip jerky, be it turkey, beef, buffalo, or venison, the processed, dehydrated sausage jerky like Slim Jims are not for me. Sorry Macho Man, I can't snap into that crap.

Oh, and bacon? Really!? Bacon is more popular than ever here. Seems like most people subscribe to the idea that bacon should be added to everything to make it better.

I don't agree, but I did just makes some potato chowder a couple days ago and fried up some crisp bacon and crumbled it into the chowder and it was awesome.

Biscuits: Love them. Chocolate Digestives (Mcvities), Digestives (Mcvities), Rich Tea, Ginger Nut, Custard Cream, Hobnob and I could go on and on. Think it was Channel 5 over christmas that did a top twenty biscuits countdown voted for by the viewers. One of the best shows on TV all festive period.

Gravy: Beautiful it is but got to use Oxo and not some cheap tat. You can't be having a roast beef or chicken dinner on a sunday without it. Goes class with a toad in the hole or just a plain old Yorkshire Pudding (I can't hate them as a Yorkshireman).

Turkey I only eat christmas day as per tradition, but even with gravy it's dry and not one of my favourite meats. Buffalo is really tasty. Vension is quite tough and chewy but I don't mind it in a burger.

We have a show here called Take Me Out where one guy whittles down 30 women to the one he wants to go on a date with but the women can turn their lights off if they don't want to be picked. Well a guy yesterday had a fair few lights on until they all got switched off when his mate said he eats orange segments covered in gravy powder. I like oranges and gravy but wouldn't try them both together.

Here in Scotland we are fans of a pie in a roll.. People (the English side of my family) find that weird. And Root Beer is pretty rank to be fair

Adders - the American version of biscuits (as in biscuits and gravy) are not the same as what we associate the word biscuit with.

When I was in the states I got offered a chicken biscuit which at the time seemed weird

Basically a chicken biscuit is a sort of plain scone with fried chicken in the middle

Went to Popeyes when I was there too and they serve them with all their meals it would seem

haha, what you guys call biscuits, we call cookies. Our biscuits are small, roughly 3 inch around pieces of buttermilk bread that is soft and fluffy. 

Here. This is a recipe for gravy, and one of biscuits. It's not terrible, but I swear there are better ways of eating pork sausage and buttermilk biscuits especially for breakfast, like say, regular pan-seared sausage, with eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, and biscuits on the side, or even better, no biscuits and a slice of toasted rye bread.



BTW, Lenny, what is Pie in a Roll? I have no idea what that is. That sounds good.

Now then I know it's Kondor with his "aye" that tries to be an honourary Yorkshireman, but give making these a try.......

https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/9020/best-yorkshire-puddings

To say it's the BBC website the photo doesn't do justice. I would go for making one huge Yorkshire that rises much taller and is browner such as this one........



Have them with a couple of sausages for Toad In The Hole. If you're into veg put that in the middle so it goes down better with a mouth of the pudding with the gravy. They are best with a joint of roast beef for sunday dinner though.

Best of all anyone can make them really easily and the ingredients are those you find around the kitchen without really having to wonder if you have them or not. They don't take long either.

I have never seen anything like that before in my life! haha But honestly it doesn't look that bad either. I'd give it a shot.

lol you guys are going the wrong direction though. I want some self awareness from you guys. Show me the gross shit you like but you know other people would think is disgusting!

Things like this:


If I wanted to die of a heart attack, I would so eat the hell out of this! This looks yummy, and disgusting all at once. The aptly named "Heart Attack Burger".

If I see you in the PAPOY thread with your own attempt of a Yorkshire Pudding in front of you that's my POTM vote sorted

Me and another guy are attempting to get our favourite sandwich shop to put some of the stuff we order that aren't on the official menu, put on it out of respect to us. It's not happened yet but they say they will think about it

For example we had a bacon cheeseburger with mushrooms, onions and brown sauce for 3.80. The next time we got a sausage added to make it a straught four quid, but changed to Tom sauce.
