Since moving down here from Pa., I can't say I'm impressed with the South's view of "comfort food". Greens and grits disgust me, and I just don't get the big fuss about the BBQ. I say that with all respect, since it all depends what you grow up with.

There is one exception though. My traditional New Year's meal has changed from Sauerkraut and Pork to Navy Beans and Ham Hocks. Good stuff. And ham and red-eye gravy can get me drooling as well.


A great Southern comfort food I learned to love while living in Nashville is the incomparable sweet potato casserole. Southern biscuits are yummy too.

The ham dish you describe, leads me to ask, Javal, if you have ever tried Pennsylvania Dutch schnitts und knepp, a wonderfully rich ham and dried apple stew.
