What Was The Go To Lunch You Ate as a Kid?

Talking about this on another board.

Mine was Spaghetti-Os and butter on white bread and American cheese and pepperoni broiled in the oven.

Great stuff and great memories.

Was this a result of the Impractical Jokers Dinner Party theme from last week?

Mine was either PB&J or cottage cheese and noodles.

This, but with a slice of American cheese. And sometimes with Miracle Whip instead of mayo, depending on what coupons we had at the time.

No. On another board I asked what is a Dukes Mayo Bowl game, which transformed into how great Dukes mayo is which transformed into I was poor and ate bologna and mayo sandwiches

Whatever it was, it would have been a sandwich.

I'm thinking of this in terms of lunch, summers, home 5 days in a row, what would I have for lunch. That was pretty much "a sandwich" (or sandwiches) in my house 4 days a week. Baloney, ham, peanut butter, maybe once a week Mom makes homemade egg salad but at least 4 outta 5 days that'd be a sandwich of some sort.

And hell to the yes, mayo is actually what a baloney sandwich should get. With or without mustard, but pretty much every sandwich is better with mayo (and yes, I'm including peanut butter in that)

There were times as a kid we would have "ketchup sandwiches " or "mustard sandwiches." Usually on one slice of bread folded over because that loaf had to last all 4 kids the week.
If we were having a good week, it would be bologna or olive loaf.

I was also in the sandwich boat most of the time. Either at home or sent to school. Lot of PB&J, turkey, ham, etc.

Snacks were fruit roll-ups, fruit by the foot, or one of those variety packs of small bags of chips where I only really liked the Doritos.

Go to was a triple decker PB&J or bologna with Miracle Whip, both almost always on Wonder Bread. However, when we had ham for dinner earlier in the week, a ham and cheese on rye was the best.

Side question: Do you prefer mayo or Miracle Whip?

Salami sandwich.

My kids today are polar opposites. My daughter has about 10 different things she will do for lunch. Soup, Ramen, hot dog, grilled cheese, mac and cheese, pizza bagels, salami, etc,,,my son will only eat a hot dog and maybe grilled cheese.

I loved a simple bologna sandwich with a slice of American cheese on wonder bread. As far as school lunch goes, it became a perfect day whenever they served Moon pies. Those damn things are so nasty now, but back then they were nirvana.

When I had cafeteria duty if Moon pies came up in the rotation it was guaranteed I was stealing as many as I could stuff in my pockets, socks and down my pants LOL.

Miracle Whip is an abomination directly from the devil. It is disgusting salad dressing and does not belong on a sandwich, or really to exist.

I was a sucker for Spaghetti-O's myself. But outside of that a PB&J was the go-to.

If I was sick, it was a grilled cheese sandwich and Mom's tomato noodle soup. Which was really Campbell's tomato noodle soup, but yeah.

I was all peanut butter as a kid. Peanut butter everything. But when I think about lunches that my mom made for us, it was homemade rolls with cheddar cheese (rarely did we have american in the fridge) in them. Occasionally she'd put a piece of summer sausage in there too. I call them 'bachelor sandwiches" now and I still eat them when I need something fast on the run.

Wait.

What in the world is that? I realize I could make an obvious guess but ... how?
Did she heat a can of tomato & a can of chicken noodle, then rinse the noodles or something?

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, okay.

I was really confused and thought there was some Campbell's red label soup I'd never heard of before.

I was a grown ass adult before I ever had soup that wasn't either Campbell's red label or some off-brand with a blue label (definitely NOT Progresso) that I can't recall the name of atm

The only reason I'm not the same way with being an adult before having non-Campbell's soup is that my mom has a homemade Clam Chowder recipe that she made when we were kids. Otherwise it was all Campbell's.

Mine would have been cheddar cheese and apple sandwiches, with salad cream - absolutely loved them.

Had one earlier this week coincidentally, with a bit of light mayo on top instead: wasn’t quite the same. The salad cream is important!

If I was making it myself, it was two fried bologna sandwiches with mayo. The thick bologna with the red plastic that you had to peel off each slice. The frying of the bologna was the most important part. It had to have the burnt edges. To this day, I hate a cold meat sandwich. Tuna fish is fine cool. Any lunch meat I eat has to warmed up in some way even if it is warmed by the heat of toasted bread.

Ketchup or mayo sandwiches were also on the menu especially during the summer.

Open faced tuna sandwich. Tuna salad on a slice of bread with a slice of cheese on top, then stuck under the broiler long enough to melt the cheese and toast it up some. I'll still make it occasionally.

The British version of Miracle Whip pretty much, a tangy mayo flavor.

I donít know what Miracle Whip is, but Salad Cream has more bitter, sour and depth of taste compared to mayo - works better with tuna too, and ham. In fact itís just nicer than mayo!

The link works (despite the missing title). Basically explains the differences between Salad Cream and Mayo: the former is more vinegar/less oil, while the latter is more oil/less vinegar. There's also a bit of difference in the amount of egg yolk used in each.

Miracle Whip was originally developed as a cheaper alternative to mayo. It contains the same ingredients, but less oil. In addition, Miracle Whip contains water, sugar, and a unique blend of spices.

It's the sugar aspect that most adult mayo fans object to.

Miracle Whip is amazing and better than mayo. Fight me.

Lunch: Bologna and Miracle Whip on white bread.

Sometimes a peanut butter sandwich, but sometimes Dad would have it be a butter and peanut butter sandwich and then I'd have to to toss it (Sorry, Dad!) - the butter was to keep the sandwich from getting too soggy but it just made it taste gross.

Later in life, I discovered that adding colby jack cheese slices to the Miracle Whip, bologna, and white bread sandwich elevated it. It's still one of my favorite quickly put-together meals.

Let me just add butter (or in my case, margarine) sandwich to the list of condiment-only sandwiches from childhood.

In which case find Salad Cream on Amazon or similar and give it a go - mayo is sweet in comparison

Oscar mayer baloney and the cheapest white bread you could find. Hell, if I don't feel like putting effort into making lunches for the week, I'll still go for it.

Not the thick sliced shit, the bologna to bread ratio is off. Also, none of that lite bologna.

(Hoity-toity soapbox ahead, meant to be humorous, but nonetheless making a point)

I propose the problem most mayo snobs have with Miracle Whip is the mistaken perception that mayo and Miracle Whip are somehow interchangeable. This sad misconception was foisted upon too many of us as children, but we're adults now. Just as our palettes have matured, so should our discernment, and our opinion in the Whip Wars.

Mayo and Miracle Whip are no more interchangeable than French salad dressing and Western brand French style dressing. Or tomato paste and ketchup. In each of the three cases above, the latter is laced with sugar or corn syrup, and sometimes enhanced vinegar, to give it a distinctly sweeter and tangier taste.

And while mayo and Miracle Whip can be used in the same recipe, the resulting taste is different. My father's sweet, family-favorite recipe for potato salad, for example tastes like trash with anything less than Miracle Whip. It needs the sweetness and the spicy tang to make it work. My mother-in-law's more traditional, country-style potato salad would be weird, would taste "off" with Miracle Whip. It requires mayo.

Also - My go-to childhood lunch was cotto salami, a slice of mild cheddar, mustard and Miracle Whip on white bread. Nacho Doritos on the side if I was making it, an apple that I threw away if Mom made it.

Another favorite of mine was a Thuranger summer sausage sandwich. No condiments or cheeses.

I need to find some of that stuff. My Mom got it from a meat shop. I may go on a hunt soon.
