We all have a few nostalgic foods that are basically comfort in edible form. Redditor u/Altyrmadiken said, "Nothing hits like a bologna and American cheese sandwich when I'm craving comfort and home." Then they encouraged other redditors to share by asking, "What food do you love for the feeling, even if not the flavor, shamelessly?"
1."For me it's just a cheap hot dog on a bun with relish and whatever condiments I have in my fridge at the time."
2."A hot roast beef sandwich with gravy poured all over the top, eaten with a fork."
3."There's nothing like a cold leftover meatloaf sandwich with ketchup. Nothing but cold meatloaf, ketchup, and white bread."
4."A bowl of jasmine rice with a big pat of butter, salt and pepper. It may sound trashy, but it tastes like comfort to me."
5."A sliced, ripe garden tomato on toasted bread with mayo. It tastes like summer in one bite."
6."Easy cheese on Ritz crackers. Yup, I said it."
7."A bacon egg and cheese on a bagel. With salt, pepper, and ketchup of course."
8."A sandwich with razor thin ham, crisp iceberg lettuce, and mayonnaise."
9."Pizza Lunchables. I crave these a few times a year and I can't explain why. They’re really not good, but I love them regardless."
10."Turkey, mayo, cranberry sauce between two slices of bread or on a bun. It tastes like bliss to me."
11."When I want something comforting I crack an uncooked egg into a hot bowl of rice and stir it all around. The rice basically cooks the egg but the yolk is still runny."
12."Cinnamon Toast. It's just white bread fried in butter and topped with cinnamon and sugar. Just like mom used to make."
13."Toasted and warm pita with labneh and olive oil. Tastes like home."
14."Chef Boyadree Beefaroni. I'm still guilty of loving this delightful childhood meal in a can."
15."A bologna and American cheese sandwich, but fried grilled cheese style. Plus ketchup for dipping."
16."A pepperoni and mayo sandwich. I used to eat these all the time as a kid. Now as an adult I make it for old time's sake."
17."Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup. I pick out the chicken because it grosses me out (even as a kid) but I love those mushy, salty noodles. I ate it whenever I was sick as a kid, and whenever I'm not feeling great it's still what I crave."
18."American hard shell tacos filled with seasoned ground beef, iceberg lettuce, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, black olives, sour cream and some Ortega taco sauce."
19."When I don’t feel good or just want something comforting I love mashed potatoes and gravy. It can literally be any kind: homemade, Bob Evans, or even the dry, instant mashed potatoes and a jar of gravy. It always hits the spot."
20."Kraft Mac and Cheese. Sure, I’ve made and eaten way better macaroni in my life, but a good old box of Kraft just brings me back."
21."Nothing like hot buttered noodles with plenty of Parmesan cheese."
22."Cheap deli lunch meat rolled up in Pillsbury crescent rolls. Place them in a baking dish, pour a can of cream of chicken soup on top and bake it. My dad didn't cook often for us growing up, but he sometimes made this. Now I make it for my kids. It's super salty and processed, but it tastes like love."
23."Saltine crackers with butter enjoyed in sandwich form."
24."A can of cream of tomato soup and a homemade grilled cheese. Mmmmm."
25."SpaghettiO’s with sliced hot dogs. I hate that I love this so much, but I really do."
26."Tuna noodle casserole. Nothing more than egg noodles, cream of chicken soup, canned tuna, frozen peas, sour cream and onion chips on top."
27."Just some warm bread with salted butter. It's nothing fancy, but it always tastes like home."
28."I'm from Hawaii, so Spam anything is my comfort food. I eat it a few times a week. Spam, eggs and rice, Spam musubi, fried noodles with Spam, a Spam sandwich, I could go on and on."
