What can I say? We all need to eat! I'm here today to tell you about some popular American foods. There are so many American foods and side dishes to choose from, so I will tell you about three of my favorites.

Let's start with a traditional and delicious dessert: homemade apple pie. Apple pie is filled with cinnamon and sugar-coated apple slices with a golden, flaky crust baked to perfection. Apple pie was brought to America by English settlers. These delicious pies were not originally made with sugar, as sugar was too expensive, but were sweetened with fruits, such as figs, instead.

Secondly, there is a delectable side dish that goes by the name of mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes are made by mashing boiled potatoes and then whipping them with whole milk and sweet cream butter. Recipes for mashed potatoes started appearing in the year of 1747 and they have been a popular side dish at American dinner tables ever since. Let's not stop there, there is also baked potatoes, scalloped potatoes and French fries, which are certainly quite popular in our country.

Another popular American delicacy, so to speak, is the corn dog. A corn dog is a hot dog that is placed on a stick which is then dipped in a thick batter and deep fried to an appetizingly golden hue. It is rumored that George and Versa Boyington created the first corn dog in the late 1930s. Who knew that such a simple snack could taste so palatable. Some other deep-fried foods that are widely known are onion rings, chicken wings and doughnuts.

Last but not least we have biscuits. A biscuit is a flaky, round, bread-like side dish that is popularly served with butter or jam. Biscuits were brought to America by early European settlers who enjoyed eating them topped with gravy.

I believe that a lot of popular American foods were brought here by people from other countries around the world. I would have to say that my favorite American dish would have to be apple pie.

American foods are delicious and there are so many that you have to choose from, that you might find yourself having a hard time choosing only one. There are also many other foods and side dishes, such as: hot dogs, hamburgers, macaroni and cheese, barbecue ribs, New York-style pizza, pecan pie, country-fried chicken and many, many more. I highly recommend trying them all because you never know what you might discover while your searching for your favorite American food.

And If you're having a really hard time trying to make a choice of which food to eat, you might just find yourself ordering a side salad with a popular American salad dressing — ranch dressing. One of the best parts of American cuisine is that the food is what brings us all together!
