Just one more...
Something that strikes me as indescribably goyish:

Challah bread

seen in many stores throughout the country (although, of course, challah
is monomorphemic, so it's semantically, rather than morphologically
redundant).  Kind of like 'baguette bread' (not that I've actually seen
that one, although Google returns >64K results for 'baguette bread recipe').
