I was reading something the other day about a joke shared between Chirac and Bush...something about how the food here stacks up to French cooking, and how Chirac really liked his cheeseburger. Now, I'm not supposing he went to Carls' Jr for a happy star burger or whatever, but I was thinking, is this what I would serve someone as an example of all American food? (Not that the cheeseburger was served as such). Also, I seem to remember something about Rattlesnake Chili being served in the international village at the winter Olympics in Utah as an example of American food.
So, what's your favorite 'all American' dish?

Some ideas I had:

Nice, juicy BLT with a home-grown tomato

Chili (hold the snake)

Sweet corn with butter

Chicken Pot Pie

Pumpkin Pie

BBQ chicken, prefferably served with potato salad

Ballpark Franks

Foods that originated here are great, but I'm also including on my list foods that just feel American to me, so to my list add: Pepperoni pizza, spaghetti with meatballs (or meat sauce). Biscuits and country gravy...oh man I'm hungry.
