"Era Favorite" Foods that Hang On....and On....

Onion Dip, the one where you simply mix a packet of Lipton onion soup mix with sour cream, became popular in the 1950's. I still do that dip today, and I still love it. What are some more of the "era favorites" that have surpassed the test of time that we still do today? I know fondue from the 70's has made a comeback lately, especially in the restaurants.

Hamburger Pie ~ hamburger meat, green beans, tomato sauce topped with potatoes. My mother's mother made it for her, my mother made it for us, I make it for my daughter. It's a great winter comfort food.

Well...during the "holidays," there's always the ever-prevalent green bean casserole. And, believe it or not, I had it for the first time 2 years ago. I've been cooking for over 50 years and I'd never had it or prepared it. So I made it for Thanksgiving dinner for Buck and me two years ago. Not bad, but a bit salty for my taste. Not surprising, though, since everything in it are commercial products.

I will have to experiment with making my own version, which would be very easy. However, I wouldn't sacrifice the canned French-fried onions. I do like those.

Green bean casserole has got to be the All-American favorite casseroles of all time. Try to skip that one at Thanksgiving .

Tuna noodle casserole. I ate enough of that as a young married that I have zero interest in ever eating it again. It got even worse when the cafeteria at work started serving 'Tuna Tettrazini'.

Meatloaf. Mashed potatoes. Grits. Oatmeal. Scalloped potatoes from the box. And lasagna, of course. Timeless all.
