When you think of your hometown what foods do you think of? What dishes pop into your head? I live in New England, I was born and raised in a small town about 30 min North of Boston, MA. I’m proud to say that my husband works in the beautiful city of Boston. When I started thinking of Bostonian dishes all I could think of was Fish inspired meals. You can’t come to New England and not try a Lobster or a very popular Clam Chowder right? I hate saying that I’m a foodie but do not like anything seafood related. Well I reached out to my fellow friends and followers that live around me. I have to embarrassingly admit that I had no clue about some of the foods that have been founded right here in MA or NH. I had my heart set on a dish once someone brought to my attention that Fluffernutter was originally made right here in Massachusetts! I knew that years ago but it never came to mind when this weeks Sunday Supper theme about Hometown Foods came into play. Coleen from The Redhead Baker is hosting this fantastic event, thank you Coleen!
Though I had my dish in mind, it didn’t come together until someone told me that a certain kind of Organic Peanut Butter was also made in Massachusetts! The recommendations continued to come pouring in, it was probably one of the most responsive posts I’ve had on FB in a very long time! I had a hard time choosing between this amazing Peanut Butter and Fluff French Toast or something even more original like Boston Baked Beans or a Fenway Park’s Sausage and Onion sub, I never leave Fenway Park without sampling one of those!
For those of you that do not know what Fluffernutter it is it’s basically Peanut Butters other half. The sweetness to a sandwich that was made Massachusetts “official” sandwich! Can you believe that your state can actually have a “sandwich!” Well believe it! So the lovely Marshmallow Fluff was invented in 1917 in Somerville, MA and is made with just four ingredients — corn syrup, sugar syrup, dried egg whites and vanilla flavoring. It has no artificial preservatives, it’s gluten-free, kosher, and a totally acceptable substitute for marshmallows in hot chocolate. Fluff is so popular that there’s even a National Fluffernutter Day (October 8) and It’s still made in a small manufacturing plant in Lynn, MA. I grew up eating peanut butter and fluff sandwiches, though I won’t serve it to my kids all that often we are aloud a treat here and there. So when I served this deliciousness to my family for dinner one night (yes we have breakfast for dinner a lot!) I was feeling really guilty because I never eat this kind of stuff anymore, but I have one rule about the dishes I create no matter how good or bad it may be for you…….I MUST TRY. So I ate a half a sandwich! That’s all it took to fill this girl up. It’s heavy. There is nothing healthy about it, but don’t we all need a good splurge here and there? A cheat day? A cheat week? A day where your looking for that breakfast that oozes guilt? Well this is it folks!
For any of my foodie friends that would like to try this dish and can’t get it where you live. Let me know I’d be more than happy to send you a few jars. It’s cheap enough and I want you to experience this goodness!
- Peanut Butter
- Texas Toast Bread (any thick bread should work)
- 4 tbsp of butter, at room temperature
- 3 eggs
- 2 tbsp of milk
- Cinnamon Sugar
- Powdered Sugar
- Scramble eggs with milk and set aside in a dish large enough to be able to dip the bread in.
- Make a sandwich by slathering one slice with peanut butter and the other with the fluff. Combine the sandwich and set aside. Make the remaining 4 sandwiches.
- On low to medium heat melt 2 tbsp of butter swirling around the pan to coat completely. Dunk the sandwich in the egg mixture and place in the pan. Allow to fry for 2-3 min. When flipping the sandwich the key is to place a small slab of butter where your about to flip it. Brown on the other side for 2-3 min. I was able to make 2 at a time.
- Continue until all sandwiches are cooked. Top with whatever toppings you may enjoy!
I think this had been one of my funnest events from Sunday Supper. It was fun to think about what to make, it was fun to write about my hometown. Don’t forget to check out the other yummy dishes!
