Well I guess this post is just about going to a store, purchasing the unique item, then fixing it up yourself because I called the store and they said they don’t serve sandwiches

The Shady Maple Smorgasbord in East Earl PA has scrapple available during breakfast daily. no doubt you can build a scrapple and egg sandwich. their market also has Amish scrapple for purchase…

It’s a Pennsylvania Dutch food, not just Amish. The Dutch people, including the Amish but also the Lutherans and Reformed, came to the US in the 1700s and into the 1800s, not the 17th century. And the recipe is nothing like described in the article. It is pork (no hides, ears, tendons, etc) cooked off the bones left over from butchering, a little bit of pork liver, broth, and buckwheat flour or cornmeal to thicken. Now we make it with a fresh pork roast. None of that disgusting stuff.
