10 Delicious Foods of the USA
1. Deep Dish Pizza
The first item on this list of delicious foods of the USA is Chicago’s famous deep dish pizza. I’m not a fan of pizza, and this is the king of pizzas. I remember having once slice and being full.
Chicago has a bunch of other specialty foods also.
2. New York Hot Dog
This is one of those foods that is famous, but I’m not sure why. I guess if you compare it to an Australian hot dog they aren’t that good. Not that they are not good though. I went back for seconds and thirds.
I took a cooking class in New Orleans and this is one of the dishes we cooked. It is like fried rice but cooked in a big pot as opposed to fried. Quite delicious and nutritious.
New Orleans has a bunch of good food. It is one of the reasons it is my favorite city in the states.
4. Key Lime Pie
I had heard of key lime pie but never actually seen one before visiting the states. One bite and I was in love!

Number 5 on this list of delicious foods of the USA is meatloaf. I remember watching American sitcoms when I was a child. They would always complain about meatloaf. When I tried it I went back for more. I can see how it could get very dry in the middle if not cooked well.
6. Biscuits and Gravy
In Australia, biscuits are cookies. Imagine my surprise when my American friend ordered biscuits and gravy for breakfast. I had one bite and never looked back. They are delicious.
This is my least favorite food on this list. It is boiled cornmeal. Whether it is good or not depends on who cooks it, and what they cook with it.
8. Mac ‘n’ Cheese
Most American’s LOVE mac and cheese. Most likely the least nutritious staple in the world! I try to stay away from it.

I first came across smores while working at summer camp. They are like the pimped version of toasted marshmallows. It is Hershey’s chocolate and a toasted marshmallow inside a graham cracker sandwich.
10. Peanut Butter
The last dish on this list of delicious foods of the USA is peanut butter. Peanut butter and jam sandwiches are not uncommon in Australia. Americans also put peanut butter on… well, everything.
I went hiking once and my friend suggested peanut butter and banana sandwiches for lunch. They were fantastic! A know another guy that ate biscuits, syrup, and peanut butter for breakfast almost every day. He will most likely die of heart failure, but I hope not! He is a good guy.
