With the world-wide audience MSG has, I thought it might be fun to post our traditional foods / childhood treats that you've grown up liking?

Here's a few of mine:

(Parents moved to the islands when I was 15 -- these sort of stuck)

The first time I had ever seen spam, it was offered to me rolled up as sushi. So I assumed "spam" was a type of fish. A really oily and salty fish!

Dipping aged Cheddar cheese in HP Sauce was a family tradition brought over to Canada from the U.K. that has been passed down over the generations.  I was never partial to it as child but warmed up to it in my adult life as a nostalgic nod to my forefathers as the previous generations of partakers are no longer living.   

Sadly, the tradition lost a little something when Heinz changed the recipe in 2011 and moved the U.K. production facility over to the Netherlands.

For me, pancakes and collard greens. Not necessarily together.

Comfort food: chocolate, grilled cheese on toast, Heinz Cream of Tomato soup.

Traditional food: tablet http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1139650/scottish-tablet Deadly but delicious (if you have a sweet tooth).

Home cooked Corn Bread in a glass of milk with sugar . . .  a tradition that comes from my Tennessee relatives.

Crazy about chocolate and caviar (not together)

Roast beef and Yorkshire pud, toad-in-the-hole, steak and kidney pudding, chocolate flavoured blancmange, homemade trifle (without sherry), proper traditional ham with hard-boiled eggs and new potatoes, stewed pigeon breast (without the shot), roast pork with crackling and apple sauce, Wall's pork sausages, braised brisket, steak and kidney pie: basically, (apart from the pigeon) the fare of the English Middle Class of the 1950s and 60s - and all of it home-cooked, of course, as Mum had been to catering college.

Ha yes for anyone who ever lived in Hawaii the SPAM was the best thing on the planet before it made it to the continental States, and still is Hawaii's number one food and good right out the can or fried in a pan.

Also Irish stew, spaghetti, roasted chicken, pork chops, peanut butter jelly and fluff, pancakes eggs and bacon, corn on the cob, toast with butter and jelly, toast with cinnamon and sugar, hot dogs hamburger and french fries, mashed potatoes and gravy, fish sticks, Turkey and stuffing, fried bologna sandwiches, Campbells chicken noodle soup, beenie weenies.

Probably lots more that I have forgotten as well?

At school in the 70s, when we had only marginal heating in a Cold Climate, carbs rather than health was a priority, and spam fritters were on the school lunch menu weekly.  :P

My husband used to make a Spam Pie. Must ask him what was in it. All I remember is cubed spam with lots of ketchup inside puff pastry and baked in the oven. Eaten with mash and veg.

comfort food for me is a nice hot bowl of homemade soup - either chicken or any cream soup - with some sourdough bread and butter

Coming from England, I love fish and chips.  Tastes best out of the paper with salt and vinegar and lots of tomato sauce.  Here's one I ate earlier :)

custard with banana and nutmeg, or tapioca custard.  my kids don't even like custard, and my husband was raised on store bought custard (horrors!), he likes thin and insipid custard which I refuse to make. if i had a time machine I reckon one of my destinations would be 1979 to my mum's kitchen.

Yes, with an image it make more sense I think  ;D

Its mainly because you can only get it in Holland, and I live in Ireland for almost 7 years now. So it has become the only thing I really miss from back home. The combination of mayonais, curry and onions with the sausage is divine. Most people outside holland dont care for it. LOL

Hot homemade buttermilk pancakes with real butter and Knott's Boysenberry syrup.
Deep dish macaroni and cheese.
Grandmother's drop dumplings with chicken gravy (last had back in the 1950's before she passed away).

It is Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and there is a turkey in the oven.... how can I think about anything else when the house smells like this OMGGGGGGGG.  I'm going upstairs now to make an apple pie and hopefully the guests come soon so I can crack open a Keiths Pale Ale.  What the heck, I might as well have one right now, it's Thanks Giving and the beer is cold!

Oh, here's one.... when mom made pies she took the scraps of the leftover crust, put them on a cookie sheet and covered with brown sugar and cinnamon.  I named it "party" for some reason when I was a tot, and that is how the family knows it now.  I always make sure there is enough dough for party. :)

Tater tot hot dish and spaghetti are two of my favorite meals growing up. 

One of my great grandma's made Lefse and Krumkake as a traditional Norwegian  food. Those were delicious. My other great grandma made homemade Chokecherry jelly and that stuff was to die for it was so good.

my Saffer husband would say: milk tart or nougi tart (which is like a smashed up pavlova)

Right: http://beerisfood.com  Beer Is Food dot com says so!

One thing that Mom made, and it's budget food was Pasta e Fagioli / in American Pasta Fazool (but some Italian dialects it sounds the same, so no foul)

Contrary to what you will find on the cooking sites, it's cheap and basic, pasta and beans and tomatoes. Olive oil, onions, garlic and spices.

Common people don't have prosciutto, maybe some ground beef. But you can feed a whole family and fill them, with this one dish. That's what I remember.

That and something Mom made called "Eatmore" (obvious it was a custom House creation) Like sponge cake, everything was a one. But it's been so long I don't remember what the ingredients were. 1lb ground beef, one cup chopped onions, one can of tomato soup, one cup chopped celery, and ??? Spices. Surprise, dinner in one pot on the stove. Kind of like Pasta Fazool.

Lunch? Grilled Cheese sandwich, Scamorza cheese on whole wheat, and tomato soup. That's an easy one. I prefer mozzarella on rye myself.


Here's mine.
