Comfort food, what's yours?
cheese, ale, egg yolks, mustard, cayenne pepper melted inn a pan, grilled and served with or on toast.
With chips, peas'n'gravy...
Can't get em dahn sarf, miss em I do..
Tartiflette,death by a million calories.
Toast, beans, cheese (strong cheddar or something pungent) plus far more Tabasco/habanero or Naga sauce than is entirely sensible. Quench fire with Brown beer!!!!
Beetrboot and cumin soup from river cottage book is ace too.
I'm a fat basket* and I've been watching what I eat for so long I forget what "comfort food" is. Could someone please enlighten me?
*admittedly not as much as I was 2 years or even 1 year ago. But still working on it
Pretty much any crisp variety on the planet.
Toasted wholemeal bagel with marge and marmite.
Baked Beans on toast with grated cheese.
Roast dinner (I could eat a whole roast chicken pretty much on it's own).
I used to love Fray Bentos steak and kidney pies with a jacket potato and baked beans. I haven't had it for years though.
You can get Heinz '5 beans' as snack pots now; those as beans on toast with loads of ched.
Oh, and the chili doritoes, but with the M and S dip
Cheese fondue. As long as there's more than you can realistically eat. Nothing worse than running out of fondue...
Had a tasty Steak & Ale pie tonight with extra gravy chips and veg very nice. Yesterday I had a steak burger in a brioche bun with thin crispy fries also very nice.
Sausage casserole with mash tomorrow.
Fish finger sandwiches on buttered white bread with tomato ketchup..
Cheese and onion pasty or pie. Probably with roast potatoes.
Boiled eggs done for 3.5 minutes with white pepper and salt.
Crisps - particularly salt and vinegar.
Salad with mixed leaves, kalamata olives, tomatoes, cucumber and some form of seafood such as prawns or smoked salmon with a dressing of olive oil and lemon.
Tunnocks caramel wafers.
Pizza, any kind.
Enchiladas or burritos
Chilli Con Carne
Think that about covers it! For a "healthier" option I do love a big bowl of cereal though, anything will do but crunchy nut clusters with chocolate are well nice, or just regular crunchy nut
mac n cheese
bangers and mash with onion gravy
or, as i discovered last night, this smack addled combo:
Crumpets need either cheese or marmite.
I used to love Fray Bentos steak and kidney pies
I've tried the Fray Bentos pies a few times but never got them to actually taste good, well, they always seem to have soggy bottoms and I'm not into that.
A steak and kidney pie from Thomas's Bakery in Ulverston (eaten cold) is a wonderful thing.
Cheese with chillis
Chocolate flake dipped in Tartare sauce (it was a beer induced discovery)
Poached eggs - the fresher the eggs, the better
A tin of cherry pie filling and a spoon (another "late night" discovery)
-ditto- ambosia custard -ditto- (-ditto-)
