What do you consider to be American Food?
If someone was to ask me what food is from the good, old USA, I’d probably have to think for a while before coming up with any decent answers. I’d probably then say burgers, hot dogs, fast food and have to think about it some more!
When Buzzfeed came up with a list to check off “How Many Of These American Foods Have You Eaten“, I was definitely curious to see what kind of dishes made the list. I was also curious to find out how many I’ve tried.
Here are some foods that Buzzfeed would consider “American”:
- Bologna Sandwich
- Biscuits & gravy
- Chicken & waffles
- Grilled Cheese
- Deep-Fried Oreos
- Bacon cheeseburger
- Hot Dogs
- Buffalo Wings
- Mac & cheese
- many more!
What I noticed was that lots of foods on the list were Southern (or BBQ) as well as plenty of junk/ snacks.
I’d consider myself a Junk Foodie so American food is definitely right up my alley! Let’s see how I did.
I wasn’t surprised to see that I’ve tried a majority of Buzzfeed’s American food list. I’ve tried 80 of 118 items which makes me “a true American foodie“!
