Only an American Can Identify 14/15 of These Foods

Grits, banana split, and Hot Browns.

Trying to define American food is tough. The Italians have their pasta, risotto, and tiramisu. Japanese cuisine has its raw fish, sushi, and ramen. But just how would one authentically identify the most iconic American items? America has often been called a melting pot. Immigrant families from all over the world brought their hopes and dreams, and also culinary heritage to their brand new country. EvenΒ the all-American apple pie isn't actually native to the United States. It came, along with the apples themselves, from England.

Barbecue pulled pork, shrimp and grits, key lime pie, and lobster rolls are classic American dishes you can easily associate with a state or region, but other states that aren't culinary destinations are harder to pinpoint.

Writing a quiz like this inevitably means leaving out or accidentally overlooking some much-loved regional specialties. Nonetheless, here are 15 dishes that are undeniably American. Can you identify all of them?
