While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

Well, I'll be spammed! - November 9 is National Scrapple Day.

Scrapple is similar to the cultishly loved canned meat in more ways than one. The mush is made from pork scraps and trimmings and is formed into a semi-solid loaf. Often, it is coated with flour and fried in butter or oil.

The meaty loaf is generally eaten for breakfast, alongside eggs, potatoes or pancakes. It can also be topped with apple butter, mustard and honey, along with any other condiments that pique your fancy.

Pop a few slices on some bread and enjoy a Scrapple sandwich. We’re not here to judge.

What's on TV?

    I'm not sure which is more disturbing- that I actually know what mean "who" Snooki is, or that she somehow became 'famous' in the first place.
    Since when is being a talentless, classless, chubby, skank the path to fame and fortune?
    Have we as a society really sunk so low?

    no spam, no potted meat spread, definitely no scrapple. I read the label of what is in scrapple – it's primarily offal – I'll definitely pass

      What has always gotten me about that is the first two things (s)he lists are eggs and bacon, and sausage, eggs and bacon. No SPAM in either one!

    And it is a happy day in Colorado!
    In addition to the Dallas Cowboys losing 285 pounds of Wade Phillips yesterday, the University of Colorado Buffs finally kicked Dan Hawkins to the curb. Now if only Obama decided to step down, we would be in a perfect world!
