"The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found."--Calvin Trillin

2 pkg. pork neck bones
Seasoned salt
3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1 cup cornmeal
1 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. cloves

Boil neck bones in water, season with garlic, onion, Worcestershire and Seasoned salt. Shred meat--should have about 4 cups. Strain fat from broth. Bring 4 cups broth to boil and add 3 cups oatmeal and 1 cup cornmeal. Add spices to cooking cereal. Combine cereal with meat. Spray 2 loaf pans with Pam and dust with cornmeal. Place 1/2 of mixture into each loaf pan and refrigerate. Slice and fry in butter.

Personal Notes:
Knip is made with oatmeal. Scrapple is made with cornmeal. Mom combined the two--Knip from the Olsen's and Scrapple from the Stupfell's. Can also use less meat.
