Are you staying up to watch the Super Bowl? Maybe not, but if you LOVE everything American (including food) you’ll know that everything is SUPERSIZED and OTT! In celebration of the Super Bowl, we’re looking at why we love all things American (but not the calories).
What does the phrase “American food” make you think of?
Waffles drizzled in maple syrup perhaps? Hotdogs doused in mustard? Or the humble Pop-Tart, fresh out of the toaster? If this is your thinking, then chances are you also associate American food with the curse words of “unnatural”, “processed” and “pretty darned unhealthy”.
But what if American foods didn’t have to be unhealthy? What if you could enjoy quintessentially American foods and not pile on the pounds? Sounds ridiculous, but hear us out…
Because we don’t think you need to give up your favourite comfort classics just yet, we’ve compiled our own top 5 American favourites that will satisfy your cravings whenever the time comes!
Top 5 American Foods We Love
1 | Pancakes
Is there anything more all-American that a stack of super thick and fluffy pancakes, topped with the finest blueberries & maple syrup?
If you’re wondering what makes American-style pancakes so much more decadent than their British compatriots, it’s actually really simple – just baking powder and buttermilk. Baking powder gives pancakes that extra fluff up and buttermilk, rather than regular milk, helps give your pancakes that neat, smooth-top finish.
