26 Foods All Midwesterners Grew Up With

We recently asked people from the BuzzFeed Community to share their favorite Midwestern foods. Here are their best responses:

2. Horseshoe Sandwich


You can substitute the Sirloin and sharp cheddar for your own choice of meat and cheese, but the thick Texas toast and French fries here are non-negotiables . Recipe here.

3. Puppy Chow


Some call it muddy buddies, others call it puppy chow — but as long as it’s made with Chex, peanut butter, chocolate, and powdered sugar, no one has to be wrong. Recipe here.

5. Meat and Vegetable Pasty

Serve with a side of gravy or sour cream for the perfect quick meal. Recipe here.

8. Runza


If you can’t get yourself to Nebraska to the popular eponymous chain, try this recipe, made with plenty of cabbage and onion just like the original stuff. More here.

9. Cheese Frenchee


Some recipes use crushed corn flakes instead of Ritz, but TBH any crunchy cracker will do. Dip them in ketchup for the full Frenchee experience. Recipe here.

10. Lefse


Serve with a bit of butter and sugar to prove how the simplest ingredients can make the most addictive of recipes. Recipe here.

14. Creamed Corn Casserole


While casseroles are in every Midwestern kitchen’s year-round dinner rotation, this variation is particular popular during the holidays. Recipe here.

26. Deep-dish Pizza


Testament to the fact that where there’s a will, there’s a way (to stuff more cheese and bread into every pizza slice). Recipe here.
