There should be two separate categories of answers to this question. Store bought Food and Home made Food.

In the first one I can safely say my all time favorite was sweet farmer’s cheese with raisins covered in dark chocolate.

For the second one it's almost impossible to come up with one. My grand mother and mother used make amassing things. My grandma's cooking was unbelievable. She's been gone for over 20 years, but I still can remember taste of some of her foods, that nobody has been able to reproduce.
You are what you eat.

Z, my mom made something similar. We called them Seaburgers. She used cubed cheddar instead of mozz and I don't think she wrapped them to bake.

I tried to introduce this beloved family dish to my current family and they hated them.

I am going to have to go with fish and chips, with lots of malt vinegar.

A close second is Twix bars or rolos.

As I look back and think real hard, my all time favorite kid foods were in this order:
1. Pancakes with real Maple syrup
2. Home-made waffles with real Maple Syrup
3.Grilled Cheese sandwiches made with Velveeta
4. Poached eggs from my Grandpa's egg-poaching pan and the cups filled with butter before dropping in the egg, served on top of toast.
5. French Toast made with sugar and cinnamon in the egg mixture.
6. Any kind of pizza, even Chef Boyardee kits, as long as pepperoni slices were added.

I'll stop there. But I had to make pancakes number 1. My Dad made them with Aunt Jemima mix. They weren't as light and fluffy as I made them. I loved them anyway. I'd sit down and eat a stack of eight or so. My dad also lilked to fry up some breadfast sausage patties on the side, and spoon some of the sausage grease over top of the pancakes. Neither he, nor I have ever had problems with cholesterol. In fact, pork fat has less bad cholesterol than does real butter. Sometimes, dear-old Dad would add drained, canned corn to the batter. He'd then call them corn fritters.

Oh, and did I mention his goulash? This wasn't the true Hungarian dish, but rather was a combination of either elbo-macaroni, or rotini pasta, with a sauce that included ground beef, mushrooms, diced onion, tomato sauce, garlic, diced green peppers, and a bit of Itallian Spice mix. Of course I make my sauces with seperate herbs and spices. But I gotta tell ya. That goulash was some good stuff.

My Dad, could cook up a storm. The only thing he messed up was pork-chops. Like many in his generation, he believed in overcooking pork to kill any nasty microbes or parasites.

My Mom was an equally good cook, but did it so infrequently. But she couldn't make a steak tender to save her life. Other than that, she could cook anything.

My Grandpa, on my Dad's side, was a great cook as well. His specialty was cooking up a mess of pan-sized trout, or smelt, or whatever fish we had to fry up. But he was no slouch with a Thanksgiving dinner either.

Coming from such a family, I guess it was jsut a natural thing for me to start cooking at the tender age of about 7. My first dish, why pancakes of course. My teacher, my Dad.

LOL... yeah... Savages!

I might have to email Mom for her recipe. Knowing her, there's not much to it (she was never very adventurous).

As a small child...a ham sammich on toasted bread, with a glass of chocolate milk. 20 yeas later a ham sandwich on toasted wheat is still one of my favorites.......Chocolate milk doesn't do much for me anymore
