My maternal grandfather's favorite breakfast "meat" was fried brains.
I have no idea where Grandma got them....
You're spot on about Dungeness crabs being good, Ray. I far prefer them to lobster any old day. Come to think of it, I don't like lobster, too dry. Crab Rangoon, old Trader Vic recipe, yum! A few years back my husband's best friend was pleading with acquaintances to take some of the crab he'd pulled out of his pots, just off his waterfront home; wish I had some now.When I was an apprentice the grocery stores would carry little tins of whale meat like the ones anchovy and sardines come in, I liked them. Then there was "Save the Whales" , no more whale meat. Now there are so many whales they are getting caught up in the ropes that hold down the traps for Dungeness crab fishermen, no crab fishing off the Pacific coast, I love Dungees, make the best seafood ravioli on the planet. I bet a pig brain/whale meat omelet would make a pretty nice breakfast! RAY
Visited some friends in Owensboro a few months back and they got mutton and burgoo for us....... wasn't a fan of either lolUsed to live in Evansville Indiana about 40 years ago.
Brain sandwiches were on many menus of local restaurants.
Never could get up the courage to try one.
Throughout western Kentucky you would often find burgoo on the menu especially the plate lunch special. They served it at an open house for a distributer. It was really good. I asked what was in it and the reply was "Do you really want to know?" I left it at that and had another bowl.
