Just about to make myself crumpets with proper butter and homemade plum jam (can't take the credit for the jam, was a gift from a friend) What's your favourite simple/basic comfort food?

Cheese and ketchup toasties (done in sandwich toaster).
Can't remember when I last had one but they're good.

What I'm making right now because I feel rough: porridge with cream and golden syrup. Reminds me of staying with my lovely Scottish gp's.

And beans on toast, with loads of Worcester sauce in, an obscene amount of butter on the toast and grated extra extra mature cheddar cheese on the top - beeeaut !!!

Rice pudding or macaroni cheese.

Cheesy marmite pasta. Pretty much as it says - pasta, marmite stirred in and then oodles of grated cheese. 😋

A cheese sandwich on soda bread with real butter. Just about to eat one now. Cheese seems to be a common theme for alot of people!

Yes sureitsgrand, I was just thinking that a lot of our fave comfort food involves cheese...interesting

I'm pretty sure carbs do something to set off happy hormones or whatever. Mine are:-

Cheese on toast with ketchup
Mash with pesto
Pesto pasta
(I really love pesto!)

When I do low carb I feel a bit depressed!

Sometimes I take a portion of bolognaise sauce (must be homemade!) out of the freezer, defrost, heat up and scoff it covered in loads of grated cheese - with no pasta. blush

Rice pudding made with evaporated milk.

Mince and dumplings- suet dumplings are a comforting warming deliciousness that tragically seems to be falling out of favour. Rich savoury mince with a parsley dumpling dropped in and steamed till light and fluffly= heaven

Roast chicken with roast potatoes and parsnips etc (or roast beef with Yorkshire puddings)

Dauphinoise potatoes

Freshly baked bread with butter

Cheese & ham toastie
