Connecticut and Maine prefer their lobster rolls slightly different.
This classic is a staple in two Northeast states, but Connecticut and Maine have their own unique takes on the popular lobster roll. In Connecticut, they prefer to serve it hot, tossing a quarter-pound of lobster meat onto a bun and drenching it in melted, creamy butter. In Maine, on the other hand, you’ll see that the lobster is served cold on a grilled, hot bun. The lobster itself is tossed with mayonnaise, chopped celery, and a squeeze of lemon. You can’t go wrong with either!
Wisconsin is the place to get the greatest grilled cheese sandwiches.
The Badger State is known for their cheese, as they produce a good amount of America’s cheese supply! As you might expect, those in Wisconsin have been known to get creative with their grilled cheese sandwiches. One of the classics is a traditional grilled cheese sandwich topped with broccoli, roasted carrots, and red onions. To those in Wisconsin, there’s not much better than putting on a cheese hat, tailgating with some unique grilled cheese sandwiches, and watching a Green Bay Packers home game at Lambeau Field.
The classic pulled pork sandwich is a staple in both North Carolina and South Carolina, each with their own unique twists.
People in these bordering states love a good pulled pork sandwich, but you’ll find that they present them a little differently. In North Carolina, the sandwich more often than not consists of dry-rubbed and smoked pork shoulder tossed in some sweet barbecue sauce. Below the state line, it’s more common to find this same sandwich topped with “gold sauce,” which is a tasty mix of yellow mustard, brown sugar, and vinegar.
