1. To cope with that secret vegan longing
for head cheese??!!? I can understand my dad and his mom fighting over the brains during hog slaughtering time in the fall, but they were meat eaters.

:rofl:

That's just odd. :wtf:

6. Okay, it's basically fried seitan and mushrooms.
It seems like it would have to be pretty greasy though. :(

7. With cornmeal and pepper.
The ingredients all sound fine. It only sounds gross because of the thing it's trying to mimic.

Weirdly, the creators aren't veg*n.

8. False! You can NOT veganize haggis.
I defy anyone to try!

Not that I'd sample it if anyone ever did. Blah.

9. When you finally visit we'll drive up to Portland and I'll buy you some.
http://store.foodfightgrocery.com/veganhaggis.html And then we can go down a few doors and get you a tattoo. All the cool kids have one.

I don't want to eat it either, but we can keep it around as a conversation piece or something.

14. It's okay, they let them run around on grass first, and pipe some old hardcore in to keep them happy
and Temple Grandin periodically inspects the slaughterhouse to make sure that everything's on the up and up. You see, her disability gives her a special insight into the thought processes of the humble vegan.

11. WTF is scrapple?
Sounds like something you'd make out of shit the dog wouldn't even eat.

13. Pretty much.
It's some sort of loaf-like product made out of parts of a slaughtered pig that are normally only used for pranks and santeria curses.

23. Worse than that. Lips, assholes, etc, produce a pink meat. Scrapple is gray.
It seriously looks like the meat residue scraped off the factory floor.

12. see, now that's bizarre.

I've had "real" scrapple when I was a kid, and it's disgusting.

17. So, how did she fake the snout? You can't have...
good scrapple without a long, streaming snout running through the pan.

(and WTF is a "tofu scramble"?)

18. Tofu scramble is firm tofu mashed up with peppers, onions, mushrooms, spices
The kind of stuff you'd throw in an omelet, but the texture is loose and similar to scrambled eggs.

22. If people are awesome, they serve it with tempeh bacon on the side.
That stuff is delicious.

24. *Gack* I can take tofu when it's mixed with good stuff, like...
omelet fixins or in a nice soup, and might have been convinced.

But tempeh bacon? Dyed and varnished soybeans pressed anto faux bacon? Nope. Can't help meself-- I likes my pig parts. But, should I decide at some point not to eat them, I'd rather not fake it.

25. I think you're thinking of the premade strips at the store
made from soy protein isolate or something.

Tempeh is a cake of fermented whole soybeans, a staple in Indonesia. It has a kind of nutty flavor, with smoky hints. Tor tempeh bacon one cuts it thin, marinates it in seasonings and cooks it. It tastes nothing like bacon, and only resembles it in being strips one eats at breakfast.

19. I suspect that's a 'mole vegan' food.
Edited on Sun Apr-26-09 08:05 PM by mainegreen
A meat eater posing as a vegan, coming up with dumb as hell vegan foods to make all vegans look like idiots.

Because if that's not the case....
well, :wtf: indeed.

20. False premise.
One first has to accept that scrapple is food.

26. It theoretically sounds like it could be decent
However, even vegan scrapple seems gross.

If they didn't call it vegan scrapple, I may have given it a shot at some point.

27. Oh, would I love to try that.
When I was a little kid in Philadelphia, my mother could cook Scrapple all the time. Then we moved to Miami, FL, and couldn't find it down there. Now, I'm a vegetarian, but I fondly remember the taste of Scrapple.

28. So basically you take your garbage, compact it, slice it up and griddle it?
because that's how you make meat version of scrapple. It is literally the garbage leftover from butchering the pig. And when I mean garbage - it's stuff that would make you puke. I've seen scrapple made and well I never touched it again afterwards.

After all, I think it was you who was responsible for me knowing about vegan haggis.

30. I posted a Vegan Haggis recipe in the V/V/AR recipe thread like 2 years ago.
I'm still too afraid to try it, I think someone asked for it and that was why I posted it.

31. Vegan Pennsylvanians will no doubt adulterate it with maple syrup
below the Mason-Dixon in Bawlmer, scrapple (vegan or otherwise) is (correctly) served with ketchup.

32. Anyone else remember the song "Gizzards, Scrapple and Tripe" by New Duncan Imperials?
(Sort of to the tune of the Flipper theme song...)

They call it scrapple (scrapple)
Just like a fresh apple
Covered up with cow crapple
Here, you can have mine...

Twenty five cents a pound
That's the best deal in town
Until you get it home
And shovel it into your mouth!

Gizzards, Scrapple and Tripe (oh my)
