I make mac and cheese with Cracker Barrel Old cheedar. It's gooood. It's decadent. It's a once every month or two comfort/treat. But, this week, Kraft Dinner is 59p a package and I haven't eaten that garbage since I was a kid. I have the water near a boil and I am going to pig out... I hope it's as tastey as I remember it when it's all we could afford.

So, what's your comfort/treat that's deacdent garbage that you KNOW is bad for you that you PIG OUT ON?

I can pig out on Kraft Mac & Cheese, but for my birthday, I had Annie's Mac & Cheese--just powdered cheese without preservatives. It's probably just as fattening. I love the frozen fettuccine alfredo, which is just uppity mac & cheese.

Take a block of Philly Cream Cheese, freeze totally solid. Then chip/shatter pieces off. It becomes very brittle, so if you use a knife the right way, you can break nice squarish lumps off.

Eat while solid - a sort of sour ice cream taste.

Spam. Oh yeh.

One of my favorite meals as a kid when Mom and Dad were absolutely broke only I didn't know it was baked Spam and canned sweet potatoes. Mom would put the rectangle of spam in the center of a glass pie plate, and empty a can of drained sweet potatoes around it. She'd make a syrup from water, brown sugar and vanilla flavoring, pour that over, and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes to heat through. A can of peas sprinkled with nutmeg was the typical side dish. I thought it a meal fit for kings.

Working with the poor as I do, I know this is still considered a fine meal by many.

I don't remember mac and cheese mixes when I was a kid. Mom made mac and cheese with velveeta. Mac and cheese was always a side dish unless Mom splurged and cut hot dogs into bite-sized pieces to stir into the finished product.    If there wasn't meat then it wasn't a meal in our house in the 50's.

Scrambled eggs with a piece of toast and hot chocolate to dunk it in. It was a quick Sunday evening winter meal after coming down off the mountain where we played in the snow half the day in wet, soggy woolens! But, I don't have to water down the eggs like my mom had to to make them stretch to feed all seven of us and I have more butter/oleo. Well, she did, too, after all the kids grew up and moved out.:-)

Oh yeah! Corned beef hash! I never got it as a kid because my dad had had some sort of post-traumatic WWII reaction to it. (Apparently, he ate a LOT of it.) Naturally, the first time I tried it, I loved it.

Over-easy fried eggs with toast and bacon, or a cheese omelet.

And for the grossest of the gross, something I encountered in Texas: Frito pie. You take some Hormel chili, heat it up (add hot sauce to your taste), dump Fritos in, add grated Mexican-style cheese, smoosh it all and throw on a glop of sour cream, if you like it.

When I was a kid, in the late Pleistocene era, my mother would often ask what my brother and I wanted for supper. The answer was often, often:   Fried Spam and sweet potatoes!

That would be canned sweet potatoes, by the way. Spam cut about a half inch thick and fried. And, although we didn't specifically say so, it was assumed that that set of delicacies would be accompanied by canned jellied cranberry sauce.

Haven't had that in years decades! Not because I wouldn't love to have it, but because my Beautiful Wife exercises her emphatic veto!

More's the pity, more's the pity.

I have found that with ice cream, the low fat types are useless - I end up eating far more - and they are higher in sugar anyway, so little effective less calorie input...

So the most indulgent ones are the ones for me - I can only have small quantities before I am sated.

Perhaps not as GROSS as others ...

Here I sit, nostalgic for my mom's spinach soup. She made it herself. It was like pea soup, only thinner and a nice, dark green. The soup was delicious, and it was such fun to bring a thermos full to school, and holding the bottle well above the cup pour it so everyone could see that dark green liquid. One friend thought it was moss soup. I wonder if I could find her recipe.

No mention of that great British dish, baked beans on toast! With a fried egg on top!

Lay two slices of toast side by side on a plate, ladle the beans over both, and gently place an egg fried sunnyside-up on top of each.

Works best with home-made beans, and a dollop of HP Sauce on each egg.

Devour with tea ...

Back in the disco days, I used to burn off a thousand calories or so on the dance floor at a local restaurant called O'Callahans -- and then put back probably twice that many by ordering their "Garbage Grinder" burger.

IIRC, it had 1/4 lb. (at least) hamburger, cheese, bun, a fried egg, 2 strips of bacon, mayonnaise (I might have had them hold that), ketchup (which I definitely did have them hold), mustard, pickles, onions, tomato, lettuce. It might even have had guacamole too.

But that was real "comfort food!"

The best 'fry bread' is found on the Navajo homeland (I wouldn't refuse it from any other tribe who makes it).

1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon powdered milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup water

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, then pour water over it and stir with a fork until it clumps. Using floured hands, mix the dough, form a ball but do not knead. The inside if the ball should be sticky and the outside well-floured.
Cut the dough into 4 pieces; shape, stretch and pat into a rough round about 5-7 inches in diameter.

Heat vegetable oil to 350 F, about 1 inch, in a large, cast iron skillet. Check with a small piece to see if it bubbles and begins to fry.
Gently place the formed dough in the oil. Press down on the dough as it frys, to submerse the top. Fry to brown and flip. Each side takes 3-4 minutes.
Some use the entire recipe in one round, pizza-sized; a little more difficult.
Take out and keep warm (but serve within an hour).
Cover with your choice of syrup or molasses, or roll lile a tortilla and use your choice of filling.

Lots of memories in the contributions above. Kids will eat almost anything, or they did when I was one.

Beans on toast is universal, not just British. We had it with a sausage on the side.
And I remember the spam with potatoes, sweet or otherwise.

Two from university.
A Salisbury steak (giant burger without bun), with a large scoop of baked beans and lots of Ketchup, toasted bun on the side. (Nighthawk in Austin).
Steak tartare, with mugs of dark beer (German place by the Gesangverein, Austin).
Loco moko- Two burger patties, two scoop rice, two scoop gravy, bun on the side. (Several places in Hawai'i).

One we do about once a month-
Two slices of supermarket 'dutch crunch' bread, containing fried thick-cut bacon, old Canadian cheddar, sliced tomato, a layer of each. The sandwich toasted in butter.

Q, your toasted bacon-and-cheese sandwich has a noble relation in French cuisine, the famous "croque Monsieur," which is basically a grilled cheese sandwich with a slice of Westphalian ham in it. Without ham, you get "croque Madame."

Charmion, why stop at that? I fondly remember the Montecristo sandwiches at a favorite restaurant. Heaven!

Three slices bread, buttered one side
Butter one side of first slice
Cover first slice with a slice of ham and a slice of chicken.
Butter second slice both sides and top with good cheddar cheese
Butter third slice and place on top
Trim crusts
Cut in half (diagonally if desired) and secure with toothpicks.

Mix eggs and milk (as for French toast), and dip sandwiches in the mixture, until well-coated.

Fry in butter in hot skillet, adding more butter as needed.

The second bread slice may be mushy for your taste- Pre-fry in the skillet before assembly. All slices of meat and cheese should be warm.
Remove toothpicks and serve on a warm plate.

I have eaten at least twenty kinds of bannock made by the Cree, Slavee, Dodrib, Gwitchen and my sister (miss you, Nancy) who I think learned how to from either the Ojibwa or Mohawk. Hers was the best. She said the `secret` was to use the cheapest lard ya could find. Dang, she made whitefish one evening--it`s a great fish to eat--and I pigged out big time on the bannock. I think of it as one of the three or four best meals I ever ate.

The Montecristo is a good days-after-turkey meal. Slices of turkey are a good filling. There are many variations, the name is dependent only on dipping the entire sandwich in the egg-milk mixture and frying in butter.

Take a slice of bread, thick, home made is best.

Pour some gravy over it....don't be bashful, now.

Put some Molasses all over the top of it.

Eat and enjoy.

Start with freshly made (and crusty) home made bread.

#1

Take fresh heated bacon fat.

Put molasses in it.

Dip fresh bread into the mixture.

#2



Put brown sugar into a dish.
Add fresh (or as fresh as you can get) cream.
Dont mix it.

Dip your bread deep into it, capturing the mix.


My recollection is that they were good, but obviously not healthy.

"Chips or fries served with gravy. It doesn't sound like it would go together but a nice rare indulgence. "

Very popular in Australia - almost a 'standard' hotbox line, and I suspect English too.

The gravy is usually fairly salty, so it adds salt, as well as a little 'sauce' style lubrication.

A while ago here in Brisbane, a food chain started with 'New York Style' Hot Chips. Sadly, they did not last long, as the 'product', while probably very good for a snowy area, was laden with fat of various descriptions, and the extra energy was hardly needed in a sub tropical climate ... :-)

A "Donair" is an ultimate comfort foods, especially with students,at the end of a night of drinking at local pubs.

A donair is an eastern Canadian variation on the döner kebab (also, some say it is a variation of a Greek Gyro) introduced in the early 1970s. The meat is shaved from a loaf (cooked on a rotating electric spit) made from a combination of (finely ground) ground beef, flour or bread crumbs, and various spices. The thickened sauce is made from evaporated milk, sugar, vinegar, and most often garlic. The meat and sauce are served rolled in (moist and briefly heated) pita bread with condiments such as diced tomato and raw diced onion.

When I was a lad, we never used a spear for eels. We just used a properly cut alder or large flat stones from the brook to slpash them out. It's all about knowing what to look for and walking very slowly... when that waving eel straightens out and pretends to be a stick on the bottom in shallow water... LUNCH!
