There are many local variations of this breakfast staple, but it commonly includes various bits of pork, ground cornmeal or wheat, and seasonings. In Philadelphia, it's served with a sunny-side-up egg, and elsewhere it's served with everything from grape jelly to apple butter and honey to ketchup and mustard.
