Yesterday I was staying with a family here in Belize and they told me that we were having "jam cakes" for dinner. Yeah, to my suprise there was no jam and no cake! It was more of a fried bread.

How about "Crackl'ns"? - aka fried pig skins from Louisiana and the southern US.

I am sure I can think of some more if I put my mind to it....
