How to Eat Like a Missourian

Missouri sits at the crossroads of America, and this is shown in the foods that they eat. They enjoy southern treats such as pecan pie. They also eat foods typical of the West such as beef and barbecue. Missourians eat catfish from their lakes and rivers. Missourians also enjoy fresh vegetables from the farms.

Many of the settlers who first came to Missouri settled their families in the Ozark Mountains. They enjoyed Ozark pudding. Print the instructions to make Ozark pudding to share with your family and friends. Be sure to have an adult help you with the cooking.
