In keeping with F.B.N.'s entertaining food threads: I'm originally from Iowa via Illinois, and there's one delicacy from back there I've missed since moving to New England: the pork tenderloin sandwich. It's an oversized breaded pork fritter that's deep fried -- crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, usually served on a sandwich roll or hamburger bun. The fritter usually is too big for the bun, so you need to start by eating around the edges. Add sliced dill pickles, mustard and chopped onions, a serving of fries or onion rings on the side, and it's junk food heaven. I need to see if I can get some of those shipped frozen.
