I guess this is really about what is uniquely American food (I’ll include our brethren and sistren to the north, so this is about North American food). I brought this up one night when we were at an Ethiopian restaurant waiting for our food. I asked “What truly [North] American foods could we put on a menu for an American Restaurant somewhere in the world?”
We came up with:
Chili (a stretch, but Texas is still part of the US at last check)
What else could be put on our menu?
