Everyone has a favorite dish or two or three, ha! However, some foods are so good you could eat them every day of the week and never get tired of them. When an online group described which foods they never get tired of eating, their responses will make you hungry for your preferred comfort meal. Are any of these your favorites too?
1. Döner Kebab
If savory foods are your go-to dishes, you’ll want to try this Turkish delight. Also spelled as doner kebab, it is reminiscent of the Greek gyro. Made from seasoned pureed lamb and beef and molded into the shape of a log before being slowly roasted on a rotisserie, it’s usually served in a pita or other flatbread. Döner kebab is a popular dish in Germany.
2. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
Served with a cold glass of milk, this is a childhood favorite many adults still enjoy. There are multiple variations on the traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, such as serving it on toasted bread, using other kinds of nut butter, and different jellies and jams. Whatever your preferences are, it’s hard to go wrong with this classic.
3. Rib Eye Steak
For steak lovers, the rib eye (or ribeye) is one of the more sought-after cuts of beef. When prepared correctly, the marbled texture makes for a very flavorful steak that’s also very tender. One of the commenters in the discussion writes, “To have a medium rare ribeye waiting for me at the end of each day…life would be good.” Life would be good, indeed!
More than a few fans of Latin food will happily describe their love of tamales. A rectangle-shaped tube of corn dough is filled with meats such as chicken or pork and made with potatoes and cheese. It’s wrapped in a corn husk or banana leaf and then steamed. They are the perfect complete meal you can eat while seated or on the go.
There are so many bread types they can’t be listed here. But it suffices to say that bread can be an appetizer to a meal or can be a meal in and of itself. There’s a bread recipe for nearly everyone, from crunchy bruschetta to potato rolls slathered in butter, and hoagies and gyros to freshly baked Italian bread dipped in extra virgin olive oil.
6. Caprese Salad
If you’re a vegetarian or like foods that are on the lighter side, you’d be doing your taste buds a favor with a caprese salad. This Italian salad has thick slices of tomato, fresh mozzarella cheese slices, fresh basil, and drizzles of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. A Caprese salad can be eaten as an appetizer or as a main course. It’s a filling dish that always hits the spot!
7. Flavored Popcorn
Technically, this qualifies as a snack more than a meal, but flavored popcorn is too delicious to leave off this list. If you prefer savory flavors, try nacho seasoning, garlic powder, or powdered ranch. If you like your popcorn with some sweetness, mix in melted chocolate or caramel. Either way, flavors can elevate your popcorn game and make an already tasty snack even more delicious.
If you’re like me, pasta is the ultimate comfort food. It not only comes in a multitude of shapes, such as manicotti, ravioli, rigatoni, rotini, lasagna, and, of course, spaghetti, but it’s eaten with a variety of sauces, including tomato, marinara, alfredo, Bolognese, pesto, and carbonara. Is it just me, or is anyone else getting hungry?
9. Grilled Cheese Sandwich
A contributor to the online forum offers the perfect description of grilled cheese sandwiches, saying they are “one of those foods where the cheap version is still on par with the fancy version. Don’t get me wrong, the fancy is clearly better. But the cheap one on a cold rainy day with some tomato soup is also incredible.” Truer words have never been spoken.
10. Japanese Curry
This popular Japanese dish is made from a mix of vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, and onions, along with beef, chicken, or pork cooked in a hearty curry sauce. Japanese curry is served in three different ways: in a pastry filled with curry known as curry bread, over udon-style noodles, or over white rice. If spice is your thing, a Japanese curry fits the bill.
