Geez! And here I thought the making of scrapple was the second-most disgusting thing I've ever heard. (The first is chitling.) Don't worry ladies, there are places in the far east that eat the brains of live monkeys. It would take more than scrapple and head cheeze to make me hurl.

Fedreb: Sounds very much like the pasties (pah-stees)that used to be the staple of the Michigan miner/lumberjack. A burrito-like concoction of meat, potatoes, onions and rutabagoes. An altogether tasty, nutritious meal. Can't find them around here, but one of these days I'm going to find a recipe and make up a batch.

When I lived in Michigan, I could occasionally find a couple in the freezer case. Good stuff. And, if I'm not mistaken, it was a traditional food brought over from Wales. (That was comfort food.)

My oldest brother likes lutefisk. I can do without it so, even in the same family, we can differ in what we consider to be comfort food.
