    I’m gonna start with good ol’ moms “Goopy chicken!”
    Sounds appetizing right?

    It’s two chicken breasts split completely in half for 4 portions, then placed into a baking pan, on top of the chicken goes cream mushroom soup, some sort of cheese and to top it off stuffing mix!(good and crunchy)
    First you put it in with foil then uncover towards the end to get some browning

    The goopy cheese and crunchies are the best part

    I bet it would look odd to some people but it’s actually one of my favorite things that my mom cooks
    Poor ma Isn’t much of a cook and the few things she does cook are either weird family recipes or from a magazine in the 90’s

    I love er either way but I grew up with variations on pretty much 4 different things

    Those are kind of delicacies though except for the chitlins so I wouldn’t say they are too odd
    Although to some they are , I guess snails are way more odd than a weirdly prepared chicken to most people

    I guess I meant odd as in guilty pleasures like eating pickles with ice cream

    They are not odd if you are french since we grew up eating those.
    But when i read some food threads here, i am sometimes thinking those american people are weird.

    I put mayo on sloppy joes or whatever they’re called in your neck of the woods. BBQ might be good too!

    I'm sure I didn't invent these, but I came up with these years ago.

    Pizza Omelet. Got cold leftover pizza in the fridge? One or two slices (crusts too), diced into 1/2" squares, tossed onto a bowl of two or three beaten eggs. Whip that up for three seconds and dump into a greased skillet on medium low heat. Cook slowly like a fritatta, or hack it up hash style on higher heat to cook it faster. When the eggs are done to your liking, dump onto a plate and enjoy with a big cup of hot coffee. Plus points for sprinkling grated mozzarella cheese over it during the last minute of cooking. I sometimes order delivery pizza specifically for breakfast the next day. Any kind of pizza works great. One of my faves.

    Lazy French Toast. You have to keep a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread in the freezer for this one. Put a round-sided skillet on medium heat and add a dot of bacon grease. Beat two or three eggs in a bowl. Pop three or four frozen bread slices apart and cut them into 1" squares. Toss them into the beaten eggs and *quickly & gently* toss them with a large spoon to fully coat them. Dump into the hot pan, let it sit for about 30 seconds, and then toss it to flip the contents. Let that cook for about 30 seconds, and toss again (lather, rinse repeat). Tossing breaks up the pieces preventing them from sticking together. After about 3-5 minutes, when the egg coating is golden brown, reduce heat to low and add a small blob of butter to the pan. Toss once or twice to coat the toasted bread with butter. Immediately dump onto a plate, drizzle with a little real maple syrup, and start shoveling...no knife necessary. With a hot coffee, of course. Note: freezing the bread is important because it maintains its shape. If you make this with room-temperature bread, it loses its loft and will turn to mush in the egg mixture. Don't know how to toss a pan? Look below. Note: straight sides on a pan will make this harder to do.

    Scrambled Eggs Je Ne Sais Quoi: Like scrambled eggs but want a bit more something? Add a tablespoon or two of quick-cooking rolled oats to the mixture. You don't even taste the oatmeal, and the eggs have more...something. This is really good. Don't forget the coffee.

    My dad used to eat canned pear halves topped with mayonnaise and shredded cheddar cheese. He got me to try it once - it wasn’t terrible, but I’m very ok with never eating it again.

    Reminds me of people at diners ordering a slice of apple pie with cheese on top.

    Steel cut oatmeal with salt and black pepper. My grand dad ate it that way.
    I tried it, damned good.

    My grandpa turned me on to this.

    Mix nearly even parts of butter and peanut butter (maybe slightly more peanut butter). Mix it thoroughly with a fork. Then drizzle a generous portion (yes, very generous) of honey over the top. Mix again. Now take a piece of the cheapest white bread you can find, tear off a chunk and swipe it through the gobbledygook.

    You'll want some coffee and bacon afterwards to clean the super sweet out of your mouth.

    My mama was a fan of sandwiches made with two slices of toast, a slice of American or cheddar cheese, and grape jelly.

    It's not that bad!

    Bear sausage links. My neighbor makes them and I can't get enough of them. I know that if I hunt a bear, I would die from eating too many sausages.

    Salmon sushi with...barbecue sauce. Specifically, "Rufus Teague Made Some Sauce" barbecue sauce. Yup. It's a beautiful thing.
