One of the best for grilled cheese. Though I might argue whether it really counts as cheese.

My guilty pleasure: slices of American cheese wrapped around a sweet gherkin.

Another confession: I do not like bacon.

Fried pickles with ranch dressing. I feel dirty just typing it.

Hard boiled eggs aged in pickled beet juice for a couple weeks. The red color clear through the egg white and partially coloring the yolk. Don't remember how I fell into this.

White American "cheese" melts well. In St. Louis we have a similar product called proven that works a bit better even than that. Ideal for any type of "melt" sandwich and neutral enough that kids don't balk the way they do at my preferred choices.

Even if you dislike it on pizza you might be surprised with how it works melted on sandwiches. It just melts very easily, but on pizza that makes it sort of blend in with the sauce in a way that many people dislike. Personally, as for St. Louis style pizza I like it; it's not my favorite or something I want all the time, but I do like it. Even so, none of the best pizzas in St. Louis are in that style. For the most part I'm not into Chicago style pizza either.

I wouldn't be surprised. Still, that peanut butter and pickle sandwich had to be healthier than its predecessor, pillowy white bread spread with margarine and a layer of white sugar. And for a beverage, Sonny Boy, sugar syrup you mixed with water. Could anything be unhealthier? I'm lucky I made it out of the '50s.

I can remember my father scraping off the mold of something in the fridge, and then eating the "clean" stuff. I still gets skeeved out. How we survived was just by pure luck and ....ah what the hell......it sure was a lot of fun growing up in the 50-60s.....

Satay hamburgers.

Spam Musubi.

Velveta, Aniseed, red wine, etc spaghetti sauce.

Fondue cheese for mac and cheese.

Making chili but using all North African spices.

Corn, peas, potatoes, and a dab of truffle oil pizza.

Pasta with only lemon, olive oil, and finely grated mizithra cheese.

Peppercorns in a gin and tonic.

Deviled eggs with wasabi.

When I was a kid, sometimes we only had mustard in the fridge, so I actually like mustard sammiches. Just mustard.

You got Kal Kan? Lucky you. I think the stuff which couldn't make the grade at Kal Kan got put into SPAM cans. SPAM was a staple of our camping trips.
