we have some funny-named local dishes where I am from..

Frogmore Stew, from a little island village of Frogmore, SC. Does not contain frogs.

Chicken Bog, a stew made from rice and chicken

Perleau, which is similar to chicken bog

Hoppin Johns, which include black eyed peas & rice

She-Crab soup is popular in Charleston.

Cracklin Bread is basically cornbread with pork skin.

Hushpuppies are fried corn meal balls with sweet corn and vidalia onions.

Pennies and Eggs - My grandma used to make it when we spent the weekend. You slice up hot dogs so they resemble pennies, fry them in a pan, add eggs and cook until done. Mmmmmm.

Hobo Soup - Another classic grandma recipe. You cook egg noodles and when they are done add them to a pot containing milk, butter and a bit of salt and heat it up. I guess she called it hobo soup because it was fast and super cheap and could be made with stuff on hand. Sometimes she threw other stuff in it like drained kidney beans and cooked burger. I prefer it plain. Absolutely one of my comfort foods.
