When it comes to food, America truly is one of the countries to visit at least once in a lifetime. But people who are on a diet are strictly forbidden here. Because they have the greasiest, most savoury, mouth-watering and processed food. Just like Indian food, Americans have many culinary creative dishes, so trying to define them is tough. They have food according to everyone’s taste; you just have to find them.
A Tasty & Healthy Chicken Soup Recipe for Fit Freaks
So, here is the most popular food of Americanas…
Pancakes – This is a typical breakfast, which may be available in every American’s home frequently. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s simple, quick and tasty. Pancake mix is easily available in all the grocery stores. But for those who want to make it like the old days, you will only need flour, baking soda, milk, butter, egg and you are all set to make these delicious hotcakes. You can also match them with honey, bananas or maple syrup if you like.
Fried chicken & waffles – What is better than crispy fried chicken? And especially when it is combined with sweet waffles, it becomes the best breakfast. Although, it seems unlikely to many people, but it has been a dish to start the day for centuries now. Fried chicken or Fricassee was famous in Mediterranean basin but introduced in America by Africans slaves. Back in those slaving days enslaved Africans used to do all the cooking and they used to cook fricassee from the cookbooks of that period. The site of glistering syrup dripping over waffles covered with crispy chicken pieces was enough to make it popular
Blueberry Cobbler – It is a famous dessert which mainly includes fruit, butter, sugar and flour in various ways. And the names have verities too, from tart, pie, crisp, torte, grunt etc. It is an American deep-dish fruit dessert or pie covered in thick crust. This cobbler dish from Britain becomes more USA when made with blueberries because they are native to North America.
Chicken pot pie – This one is one tasty culinary dish, originated from Greece. This is a pie made with shredded chicken and vegetables and lots of love. If you have leftover chicken or turkey from last night that would be the best for making this dish. Once you’ve tasted this, you won’t be able to go back to your ordinary pies. It is that good and that’s why chicken pot pie has been the favourite dish for most American households.
Lasagne – Finally, a pasta dish. For all the pasta lovers this is probably the ultimate recipe. The thick layers of lasagne noodles filled with meat and vegetables floating in tomato sauce are enough to make anyone drool. This is one of the best Italian-American recipes that has been experimented by different people, in a different era. Even though it is not a healthy dish but you can also make Lasagne by using whole-wheat noodles for those weight watchers.
Pot Roast – For making this dish you will need to take a chuck steak because it is the best part to cook the pot roast. As winter survival pot roast is a seasonal dish, which can make you forget about the harsh winter breeze. “Pot roast,” as a term for browned meat cooked with vegetables in a covered pot, began appearing in the late 19th centuries. The method is to slowly cook the cuts of beef in flavoured liquid with vegetables. You can add any veggies you want to this heavenly liquid. You just have to have the patients to eat this slow cooked goodness.Mac and Cheese – This is the ultimate comfort food, which has the potential to please everyone with a knack for tasty dishes. It gained its popularity after being introduced by Thomas Jefferson to The United States. The best way to make macaroni and cheese is by using at least three different kinds of cheese, to make it extra creamy and divine. Whenever you are feeling low, just remember that there is nothing Mac and Cheese can’t fix.
Shepherd’s Pie – Another pie recipe for the people who truly want to taste the American culture. This pie can be made by any kind of meat but it is named Shepherd’s pie because it was made from lamb and a shepherd takes care of them. Cottage pie or Shepherd’s pie, originated from Great Britain used to make from leftover roast beef. But after Americans made this dish their own, they started to use ground lamb meat for filling.
Pizza – In Italy Pizza maybe a snack but when you are in America, you wouldn’t find many places which have pizza in snack sizes. The huge popularity of this Italian dish became so wanted that American couldn’t just have them as tiny pieces anymore. That is why they started to make huge pizzas with a thin base, enough for a meal. Each year, some 3 billion pizzas are sold in the United States at more than 74,000 pizzerias. I think this is enough to tell you, how much they love pizzas.
BBQ Ribs – Merely throwing meat on the grill is not barbecue, not in the traditional sense. Barbecue varies by region, Texas, Kansas City, Memphis and North Carolina. This dish doesn’t require any specific cuts or meat, the main ingredients are the sauce. Many families have their special family recipe to make barbecue sauce. The main technique to make delicious barbecue ribs is to cook the cut in thick layers of sauce until the meat comes off from the bone.
