Well, I'm in Texas, USA, so I suppose barbecue would be it. People here are really specific on just how to cook the meat so it's tender, and there are so many varieties of barbecue sauces.
I know people in other places think it's really weird but for breakfast we love to have biscuits and gravy. Just soft, buttery biscuits swimming in a pool of gravy. I'm hungry just thinking about it.

I am originally from Nebraska in the US and one of the traditional foods we have there is a runza, or sometimes known as cabbage burgers, or bierocks depending upon the area of the state you are from. A runza is a yeast dough bread pocket with a filling consisting of beef, cabbage, onions, and seasonings.
