This 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.
