What is your favorite comfort food that is also kind of disgusting? - Page 3

post #41 of 134
When I was a kid my mom would put cheeze whiz and half a marshmallow on top of saltine crackers and them put them under the broiler to "toast" the marshmallow. I loved them but the thought of eating them now kinda makes me throw up a little.

When I think of comfort food that's "disgusting" I tend to think of prepackaged foods that I would be embarrassed to buy and run into a crunchy friend. So. . .

--Lucky Charms (I've eaten these once in the last 8 years, but I still love them and if ever given the opportunity to eat them again I totally would)
--Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal (yep, another one )
--Cool Whip (some things just taste much better with this than with the real stuff. . .pumpkin pie for one)
--Jarred Nacho Cheese (my DH makes breadsticks from scratch then I love to triple dip them in nacho cheese, garlic butter, and marinara sauce)
--Little Smokies and Crescent Rolls

For the record, I probably haven't had either of these things in 25 years...

Cheetos (the hard and crunchy kind) dipped in full fat sour cream

French toast covered in peanut butter, fake syrup, chocolate syrup and topped with reddi-whip

I love Lipton chicken noodle soup, the kind that comes in the little packet with dehydrated chicken chemicals. With extra alphabet noodles added and a few Saltines.

Cream cheese and green olive sandwiches (is this a pimento cheese discussed upthread, or is that different?)

Hot buttered cheerios - I haven't thought about that in years, but we used to eat that in the wintertime after coming in from sledding, which reminds me of...

Those individually wrapped Swiss Miss hot chocolate packets with those little fake marshmallows that puff up when you add boiling water.

Ok, I can't eat this now that I'm grain free, but I still secretly crave it once in a while

Velveeta shells. I used to ask for this for birthday dinner when I was a kid!

Skippy peanut butter (I hate the natural no sugar no hydrogenated oil stuff.)

Nutella. OMG I can eat this with a spoon. Must learn to make it without the yucky vanillin and crap.

Ichiban noodles, cooked and drained. Then the sauce pack sprinkled on top, schezwan sauce, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, ginger powder and chili flakes poured over and mixed together. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm... I used to call this college gourmet, back in the starving student days!

Fish sticks, filet-o-fish type sandwiches....all pressed fish part patties fried in who knows what. With plenty of tartar sauce or ketchup.

I have this once in a blue moon but when I do I really really like it even though I think, "this is AWFUL!".

Poutine. Yum, yum, yum. Especially if it's fake poutine from BK. :

French fries loaded with salt and vinegar. And the fries must be deep fried. Even better if they're New York Fries.

My mom used to make this all the time when I was little... fried bologna. My younger siblings and I would DROWN it in ketchup. We *loved* it.

  • old fashioned, unnatural (trans fat laden) peanut butter!
  • mac and cheese from a box
  • Alphaghettis
  • oreo cookies
  • the fatty bits from a roast or meatloaf or whatever!
  • chicken skin
hmmmmm, I could go on![/LIST]

Vanilla ice cream with peanut butter. Not peanut butter ice cream, though. Vanilla with huge spoonfuls from the PB jar, barely mixed through. Dh knows to tread carefully if I eat that.

SAME HERE!! About once every year or two, I suddenly get the urge to go get a box of frozen fish sticks and bake 'em up. I eat them with fries and ketchup (I do get the organic ketchup at least, but ordinarily I don't have ketchup at all). If I'm trying not to feel too guilty I'll cut up a potato and make the fries myself, but I've been known to get those awful frozen crinkle-cut fries at the store. I know those fish sticks are horrifying but every once in a blue moon they're just... well, comforting.

Well, not sure if this counts as a comfort food, as many would say it's not even food. But for some reason, I craved this when pregnant and ate two cans of it and was done. It's Chef Boy-R-Dee ravioli. It's not really comfort food because I don't really feel fulfilled by it; I mean I want to be reminded of my childhood or something, but it just feels empty. For something that feels like a comfort food that is really unhealthy, it's gotta be biscuits and sausage gravy.

Also a comfort food Eggs Benedict with home fries. The tangy hollandaise sauce and runny egg yolk mixing in with the english muffin, or the potato & pepper chunks...mmmm.

I make polenta/grits with over medium eggs for breakfast sometimes. It's really good with rosemary!

And, of course, most of the food I ate for dinner tonight!

--Little Smokies and Crescent Rolls
Man, I went to the Adventure Night craft thing at my church this past Sunday, and everyone brings finger foods to share. Usually someone brings the little smokies wrapped in the crescent rolls, but no one brought those this year. Darn it!!!

I guess for me comfort food is any kind of soft white bun with some sort of meat and condiment on it. So, yeah, fish sandwiches, fast food hamburgers, sausage or egg muffins. When I was pregnant the first time, I craved chicken roll/loaf at one point, and they had nothing like it in the stores where I lived. There is just something about those binders and artficial flavors mixed with the fatty meat scraps pressed into a circle that is good. But the rubbery Oscar Mayer roast turkey doesn't do it for me at all.

I used to love potted meat sandwiches on soft white sandwich bread. I haven't had that since I was a kid!

This thread is hysterical because half of the stuff in it makes me want to vomit just thinking of it, and the other half I'm nodding in agreement over.

I really really really love ramen noodles. They are just gross as hell if you read the label, but I can't help it. I like to drain them, add a pat of butter (!), and then pour the entire flavor packet on and mix it up. I could probably eat three packs like that. Disgusting!

This is me, minus the butter though I add some thai chili sauce to mine. I could eat them everyday though!!!
