These delicious offerings are known for being classic American dishes.

America is known as the Melting Pot. And just like a a giant pot of melted cheese, I'm thankful that it is! There is beauty in diversity, even when it comes to food. I love all of the different dishes that have made their way into our nation. However, I'm also a fan of those old-fashioned classics, like apple pie.

In fact, apple pie is one of the dishes that made PopSugar's list of 10 Quintessentially American Dishes.

These are foods that originated in the United States (although I'm sure they were influenced/inspired by other nations). Their recipes have been passed down through the generations. Many of these are good, stick-to-your bone plates that can be eaten solo or mix-n-matched with others on this list.

Actually, if we're being honest with ourselves, we can go to a buffet and get all of these in one sitting!
