I know its not a specific dish but I never knew it was spelled like this "Hors d'œuvre", I didn't even know what the word was or meant when I was reading.

Trailer Park Taco Dog

Nuke some weenies and wrap in a warm corn tortilla with some mustard on it.

It is great.

Pork f*ggots (a type of meatball made from offal--heart, liver, kidney, other pukey things)
Mincemeat (for the reason that there is no meat whatsoever)

Hush Puppies.

If you know how they got the name, then it makes sense.
When having fish-fries, dogs were always running around begging and yet you couldn't give them a bit of the fish for fear of bones. People began frying little balls of batter and throwing them to the dogs to hush them. "hush puppies".

Lamb's Fry here in Oz is actually lamb's liver. So if you're ever here on a visit and see that on a menu but hate liver, that might be a bit of helpful information My English friends tell me that in the UK, Lamb's Fry is even worse. It's the lamb's ... family jewels fried up. (I can imagine the blokes reading this suddenly crossing their legs).

And that reminds me of the other oddly named food: Rocky Mountain Oysters! Sneaky people!

I have my grandma's recipe for mincemeat and it indeed has meat in it!!!!! If you buy it in a jar, maybe it doesn't.
