Linda's StoryThis is an old world recipe and it came with settlers from the lower Rhine area of Germany. It's primarily corn-flavored with undertones of spicy sausage and smoky bacon.
You Know It's Cooked Improperly When: If your scrapple turns into a gray pile of mush, you done messed up. Start with a hot and greasy pan, dredge your scrapple in flour to create a crispy outer crunch, and just leave that block o' weird alone for several minutes before you even think of flipping it. If you don't, you'll be left with nothing but crumbly scrap.

Linda, this is another food my kids were raised on & they all love it. My oldest daughter makes it often & likes to take it to her neighbors who have turned up their noses at the mention of the name "scrapple" They have to agree that it is delicious. We don't use the flour in it & use finely chopped pork, I'm sure either way is great.
