Bridgeville is celebrating scrapple this weekend, the tasty breakfast treat made in Delaware. As the annual Apple-Scrapple Festival, scrapple is being cooked, sculpted, tossed, and yes, eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

However, the makers of the pork, cornmeal and flour patties say these are hard times for the industry because of rising raw material costs.

Jim Hodges, executive vice president of the American Meat Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based industry trade group, says scrapple was brought to America by Dutch colonists and remains a regional product, with sales mainly in Pennsylvania and Delaware.
