Scrapple is a traditional and wonderful food. It is believed to have originated from Pennsylvania Dutch. Because of its flavor, you can easily find its fresh and frozen forms at any supermarket across the country. In fact, the process of cooking scrapple is simple than you might think. I have cooked scrapple many different ways but the best way I find to cook it is to pan fry it. Here are the simple steps on how to cook scrapple crispy and not soggy.
- Fresh Scrapple
- Butter or Oil
Instructions – How To Cook Scrapple
Slice into 1/2 inch thick slices. While you slice the scrapple, preheat the pan on the stove under medium heat. Add the oil once the pan is heated enough.
Put the pieces of scrapple on the pan, leaving at least half an inch of space between each slice. Then let each side to cook for about five minutes or once the side that’s cooking becomes crispy and turns brown. Flip the scrapple and let it cook for five minutes again or until the piece is also brown and crispy.
Once both sides of the scrapple have become crispy and turned to color brown, remove them from the pan using a frying fork.
Serve scrapple along with eggs, waffles, or pancakes.
How to cook scrapple is pretty easy, but you need to remember that the heat of the frying pan is the secret to making crispy scrapple. Also, although scrapple produces enough grease, it’s still recommended that you use oil in pan frying it. Applying grease or oil on the preheated pan will prevent the thin slices of scrapple from sticking to the pan. Just remember not to use too much oil or grease as your crispy scrapple will become oily when cooked.
