This dish was created to honour Thor, God of the Common Folk.

In North America, classic scrapple is a loaf made from a very thick maize porridge mixed with spices, swine offal and head cheese, then fried. It shares a kinship with the Italian dish polenta, a cooking technique that was applied to other grains prior to the introduction of maize to Europe. In this recipe, a mix of grains that were much more commonly available to the Germanic tribes has been substituted – cracked wheat, rye, oats, and flax seed. Such a mix and rough grind of grains was more economical for poorer folk, who ate it hot as gruel and often later fancied up the leftovers as other dishes.
