I've got an appetite like a horse--always game for a good hearty meal! But some of my favorite comfort foods are:

Fresh baked, buttered cinnamon rolls (wonderful smelling and super dooper tasty!)

Prime Rib (rare) with basil-buttered new potatoes, green beans with sauteed onions and candied almond slivers.
(Happy food dance!!)

Banana, wrapped in Kraft American cheese slices (you'd just have to try this to appreciate the wonderful mellow flavor combination)

Pork chops, with fresh mashed potatoes, apple sauce--followed by warm apple cobbler topped with rich vanilla ice cream!

I could go on, and on, and on...

.......MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!! :)

Had some stewed rhubarb and custard with a slice of bread and butter last week, it must be thirty years since I had ate that.
Food from a simpler era, enjoyed it to.

I know a girl who can devour a double hamburger (2 x 8 ounce patties and all the trimmings) without it having time to steam, let alone get cold! :)

For my taste ... had this great honey baked ham a while back. It was simply bliss! :)

Bacon!, you just can't get decent bacon now, they cut it far to thick and no matter which way you try and cook it horrible white gunk pours out, payed way over the odds for some supposedly traditionly cured stuff, it was exactly the same.
Ah for some good bacon cut paper thin and cooked crispy. http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/frown.gif

Large WELL DONE fillet steak, mushrooms, pepper sauce, tomatoes (must be uncooked), some thin cut chips, NOT bloody great railway sleepers as some places insist in serving up. A MEDIUM white wine, afterwards nice cold draught lager, such as Grolch.

Sigh, I've read this thread with a certain amount of sadness.
I'm right with you Tony.
When I used to visit mum and dad, mum would do my favourite. Steak and Kidney pudding with dad's new potatoes and peas.
She died -- way too early -- almost 13 years ago to the day.

Ok, comfort food, not gourmet. Right?

1. Good old pinto beans and smoked ham. (with cornbread of course)

2. Chicken fried steak with greasy french fries (chips for my English friends), covered with creamy gravy.

3. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and creamy gravy.

4. Pot roast with potatoes, carrots, onions and pan gravy.

5. And last but not least: chocolate cake, chocolate ice cream with hot fudge sauce.

You will NOT lose any weight with any over the above food.

There can be only one true comfort food - mashed potatoes! Can quite happily eat them on their own - no need for accompanying meat or veg.

Boiled potatoes, fried scallions, cheese, butter, garlic, black pepper and salt all mashed together.

Cheers

Well I might be looking back with slightly rose tinted shades, perhaps it was all the stodge my generation were fed that makes the mid fifties a dangerous age for us, re heart attacks and such.
Some of the grub must have sent the colestoral counter off the scale.
