This is a recipe I learned from my Dad whose family was from Conshocken, PA.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour 2 cups of water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Cut sausage into pieces and add to boiling water mixing throughly (a potato masher works well). Once sausage is done take pan off heat and add red pepper flakes and sage.
  3. Add cornmeal and mix throughly and pour into loaf pan.
  4. Refrigerate until completely cooled.
  5. Slice and fry in frying pan with cooking spray.

I used to get the frozen kind in Maine but miss that killer delicious Scrapple from PA. Can't get it here in Idaho. Will have to try this recipe. I'm from N.D. and love this stuff. Miss barrel molasses and shew fly PIE too!

this is not real scrapple. Real scrapple has every part of the pig except the oink and this has sausage. Scrapple needs the iron like taste of the pig's offal. It is however a good substitute for scrapple if you live outside of the Philadelphia/Lancaster area. What does your father from Conshohocken think?

This sounds like a recipe my Mother used many, many years ago except she used black pepper instead of red pepper flakes. I just couldn't remember the quantities. I will give this a try. Thanks!!
