5 Delicious Southern Suppers To Replenish Your Energy


The southern US cuisines owe their popularity to the influence of cultural diversity in the region. Although it started with the Scots, who cherish an age-old tradition of deep-frying their chickens, some African ingredients like mustard, turnips, black-eyed peas and collards have now become quite the staple in numerous southern dishes. 



Before the Civil War, farmers, who raised pork and chicken, were the primary inhabitants of the region. They opted for high-calorie meals to keep them active throughout the day. With time, French, Spanish and Italian ingredients made their way into the southern cuisines, thus contributing to its diversity. 


At present, southern foods are an absolute delight to the natives, as well as the foreigners, because of their high calorific value and incomparable taste. 


Let’s give you an idea about some delicious Friday snacks and meals to boost your energy for a weekend night out.

As it’s mostly smoked over low heat on sweet wood, chances are, you won’t suffer from food-guilt later.
