    I'm Hispanic and I grew up with rice and beans as staple side dishes so I'd say rice and beans.

    ummmm let's see : Macaroni & cheese, garlic bread, garlic cheese bread, pizza with feta & kalamata olives, cheez-its, chocolate cheesecake, rice pilaf. Basically anything that is really high in carbs and fat. wink I LOVE cheese!!!

    Another good comfort food is 'faux mashed potatoes'. Simply boil cauliflower, mash it and use cream cheese or milk & butter. The texture and taste is very similar to that of mashed potatoes and it is so much better for you. I use 1-2 of those Laughing Cow 35 calorie cheese wedges, and it's pretty good comfort food.


    Thanks....now I'm hungry! wink

      Faux mashed potatoes... sounds intriguing.  Might have to try it some time as a good lo-cal substitute for regular mashed potatoes.

    Definitely roast beef and mashed potatoes or roast turkey and mashed potatoes.  Totally American and what Mom used to make, wink.  You always revert when you need comfort!

    Chocolate cake is my favorite, but if I am on a low carb diet, I like to just eat whipped cream by the spoonful.

    I'm with the starch and fat crowd. Pasta -- in any form. Mashed potatoes, baked potatoes. Mac & Cheese (boxed or real).
    My Hubby turned me onto a fabulous Serbian comfort food:
    Noodles and sour cream.
    His mom used to make it with "Creamettes" but I can't find those where we live so I use the large (really large) elbow macaroni.
    Cook and drain the elbows then slather them with butter.
    Fold in sour cream -- enough to cover and don't be stingy. Hubby insists it be "real" not lowfat or fat free.
    Season with salt, pepper and a little bit of nutmeg.
    Serve with green beans (to assuage your guilt and make you feel like you are not being quite so bad!

    I just thought of another comfort food. hehehe

    I take store-bought garlic bread, broil it and then use a portion for a roll for a big juicy grilled burger. If I'm feeling extra decadent, I'll melt a piece of provolone on the sandwich. It's basically the best burger ever!!!


    Probably about 1200 calories a serving lol (I should work in the Burger King development kitchen or something!) wink

    I want some of just about everything on here - not all at once, that wouldn't be very comforting - but in increments.

    My favorites definitely depend on what it is I'm comforting myself for (sick, sad, skinned-knee, etc)..

    Definitely a MacDonalds Quarter pounder with cheese. Only problem is we don't have a MacDonalds here in Guernsey, so I have to wait until I am travelling to the UK to be comforted, (usually as soon as I land at Gatwick Airport it is the first place I head for). smile

      The shrimp is a great choice nutritionally speaking.  What a great coincidence that it also produces a craving.

        regular cheeseburgers you can eat in one bite and sit in the parking lot and stuff yourself and if yu feel more hungry you can just walk back in and get more

    A really good grilled cheese sandwich like one from a "greasy spoon" restaurant. My husband's grilled cheese is very close to that. Crispy, buttery crust, cheesy, cut into triangles.

    Either that, or matza brai; something passed down from my grandparents. Yum!
