      STL here, agreed. North County pizza was great (Ponticellos, Cusamanos, Sallous) but those are all gone now. BJ's still makes good stl style, Serras in Maryland Heights. My favorite pizza in town is at La Pizza in U city

      I have relatives in St. Louis and I always feel like they're pranking me when they claim to actually like the velveeta crackers. It might be the worst pizza in America.

    For me, it's toasted raviolis. I make em myself! The possibilities are endless, as far as fillings go. My go to is sausage and mozzarella cheese. I serve this with marinara sauce, keep it simple. I tell you, my cousin owns a restaurant where they serve these. The locals love it. It's a simple recipe. Just toss the raviolis in some breadcrumbs, pan fry in oil.

      do I need to use frozen ravioli so it maintains its shape or can I use fresh?

    if you have any problems, try brushing the ravioli in eggwash before breading them

      Minnesotans are so fricking moronic holy shit. The whole country makes that tasty type of casserole, but the difference is we're not a bunch of hinga dinga bork bork bork Swedish incompetents with dumbfrick accents and goofy ways of speaking, so we don't call them a Britain-tier babby talk name like "hot dish."

      I just can't fathom the fact Americans are overpaying for their own cheese, that's $36 per kg, not too far from something similar imported.

        If it's an actually good cheese, that's not a crazy price. You're buying them in small pieces for a treat, not huge blocks for grating onto food about to go in the oven.

    I moved to the Midwest a few months ago. Do I have to make casseroles to fit in? Any special insider info so I don't make a faux pas?

      I thought the "white people can't handle the spice" meme was just made up until I lived in Minnesota for a few years. It's the most bizarre state I've ever lived in. The Twin Cities are basically a big hick town LARPing as a metropolis. I lived in Omaha for a few years, and the average person there was more sophisticated than the average Minnesotan. Omaha isn't known for adventurous eating, but compared to Minnesota the palates are incredibly sophisticated.

      This is a typical Minnesota hotdish (their term for casserole)
      https://www.nelliebellie.com/tater-tot-hotdish-recipe/
      >1 lbs ground beef
      >2 cans cream of mushroom soup
      >1 cup corn
      >1 cup peas and carrots mixed veggies
      >1 pkg tater tots
      >1 large onion
      >1 cup cheddar cheese optional

      Notice how there's not even black pepper in it?

      Do not put any black pepper in your hot dish, it'll be too much for most Minnesotans. If for some reason you decide to put a few red pepper flake in it, you'll have people fanning their mouths to try to cool the heat and talking about it behind your back for weeks. Things like breakfast sausage and pepperoni have too much heat for a many of them. A sale on Campbell's condensed "Cream of ____" soups is practically considered a holiday.

      I knew a guy from Michigan who told me about the wet burrito. He could never really explain how it was much different from the enchilada, but he insisted that it was, specifically the sauce. What's so special about the wet burrito sauce?
