BTW, has anybody ever tried those knishes (fried mashed potatoes) that are sold by sidewalk vendors in New York City? They're good with a home brew.
Yum. Bacon, potatoes and cheese. You had me at bacon! And Knishes are delicious. I haven't had one in years!

One of my staples from college, which I still make occasionally purely out of nostalgia:

OUR DAILY BREAD

Makes one "batch" -
- 4 cups cooked white rice
- 1 can of wolf chili
- 1 can of pinto beans, drained
- a metric sh*t-ton of Sriracha (rooster sauce), or to taste

Combine in a large microwavable container. Stir well to mix evenly. Microwave on high (covered) until steaming hot. Refrigerate when full, re-microwave when hungry again.

A batch of this used to last me a couple days of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and for super cheap.

Frito pie. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's a pile of Fritos corn chips drowned in chili with melted cheese on top. If you want to get fancy, add some diced onions on top.

You can do the same thing with french fries or tater tots, or even hash browns; every version I've ever eaten was tasty. You can add just about anything edible & it'll still be tasty, probably even moreso. I'll bet even brussels sprouts would be good in frito pie, of course I loves me some brussels sprouts!
Regards, GF.

Buffalo chicken dip.

Shredded or diced chicken, cream cheese, shredded cheese of your choice, blue cheese and or ranch dressing, and a ridiculous amount of hot sauce and toss in the oven until everything is melted. Stir and add more hot sauce to taste.

Or

Sausage dip
Brown some loose sausage (I’ve used Italian, chorizo, and brats and they were all tasty but chorizo was the best), dump in a can or two of drained rotel and a block of cream cheese.


Use chips, pretzels, or my favorite buffalo pretzel chips to dip. They are both amazing added on top of a burger too.

We learned to use leftovers when I was growing up:

Mac and Cheese, reheated placed between 2 slices of toast with bacon.

I didn't know they're called knishes but I love me some fried leftover mashed potato cakes, I like to mix in chopped onions when I fry them up. Fry'em in bacon grease and butter!

Cold navy bean sandwich with bits of ham hock and onions!

Dang, brings back memories of all kinds of good things.

Damn I miss the Waffle House!
Subsailor reminded me of the mashed potato sandwiches I used to eat when I was much poorer than I am now. A scoop of mashed potatoes (leftovers or instant) with butter/margerine & a little salt & pepper spread on bread or toast.

I also used to eat condensed cream of mushroom soup spread on bread or toast. Just open the can & spread it on with a spoon, like you'd spread jam, but thicker. Sounds disgusting, but it's not bad.

Or mac & cheese from a box, add a can of tunafish & a can of peas, stirr it all up & you've got ghetto tuna cassarole. (SP?) You can also add a can of cream of mushroom soup if you like.
Regards, GF.
