I went to a Native American festival last year and was served some bear stew. It tasted like my mom's beef stew, one of my ultimate comfort foods. Like mom's stew it wasn't half bad cold. Mom ruined us for beef stew and macaroni and cheese. If it isn't her recipe, my sister and I aren't interested.

Ed... eel spear? Don't you have a salmon spear? It would work just as well. Oh, you won't get so many eels maybe, but, to me, that's a good thing. I dislike the taste, unless I am HUNGRY.

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!

Fried Conger Eel is a delicacy in Chile - my mouth is watering now thinking about it. It has the texture of a firm fleshed, white fish, and it's delicious. I think you simply bread it and fry it, and they also make a conger eel chowder that is wonderful.

One more re the father-in-law. We also learned that if he doesn't consider the fare delived by "meals on wheels" on a given day to be tasty enough, he will probably pour bleu cheese salad dressing on it, whatever it may be, and chow down.

No, he isn't at all senile. He's just someone who has always been very much his own individual, and certainly isn't any less so at 92 years of age.

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.

"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 ... :-)

Just got a present from my older son- A nice chunk of Spanish Serrano ham.

In Toledo (Spain) an appetizer consisted of thin slices of Serrano ham and wedges of sweet cantaloupe. So good I had to repeat order.

He also sent Spanish chorizo. It is made with some of the less useful parts of the pig, but lovely taste.
What parts? Don't ask, don't tell!

I got a 1944 copy of life Magazine from the library here and some of the stuff mentioned above was featured in "War-time Meal Planning" I always wondered where my mom and grandmother came up with such gross food, so this was informative to me-my mom said Spam was one of the few meat products you could get without using your "meat"coupons, so she and her friends used it a lot. My memory of Ohio cuisine from the forties and fifties had a lot of Spam, bologna, Velveeta and Mrs. Paul's fish-sticks in it, along with Chef Boy-ar-dee, and spinach that came in cans. Lettuce was iceberg-left Ohio as soon as I could, never moved back

I haven't had these two since I was a kid.

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.

OK, I admit it. I like this one. Its from my youth:

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.


It may sound gross....but, it tastes just fine.
Once you have it, I'd wager you would have it again.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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!"

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 ...
