    What's wrong with egg yolk, oil and vinegar?
    Oh, and... What Is American Cheese, Anyway?

    Both still garbage, although I can tolerate mayo in reasonable amounts. American "cheese" isn't cheese and basically just makes me retch whenever I attempt to
    eat it. Like one time I got a slice of "steak bomb" pizza and it had some american camoflauged in its cheese composition, and upon tasting it, I resisted the urge
    to vomit and found the nearest trash and just spit it out. The texture and the taste just triggers my gag reflex.

    Hey, I used to make a Miracle Whip and Ketchup sandwich when I was kid. I won't judge you for eating Mayo on a cracker!

    Wonder if you got a contaminated slice in the school lunchroom or something when you were a kid and now your body just reacts, like someone who's had a bad clam.

    Nope, just never liked it. As a matter of fact when I got older I started hating it even more. I can literally open a bag of fast food or something and smell the stench of american cheese just by opening the bag. The deli grade stuff is slightly less revolting but still stinks.

    Fair enough! And yeah...I was just relish short of having Thousand Island dressing on a sammich.

    My all-time go-to sammich when i was a kid was Miracle Whip and potted meat! That was the shit, right there!!!!

    Mayonnaise is (as a rule) fine, but I cannot abide by Miracle Whip. If I wanted a "salad dressing" based on mayo, I'd start with mayo and add the other ingredients needed.

    My biggest problem with commercial mayonnaise is the inclusion of preservatives and things like soybean or (urgh) rapeseed oil.

    Obligatory:

    I haven't had it in probably 30 years. We ate it about 1x every other week when I was 4-6yrs old. My mom bought some when I was in HS or college. It was inedible. Too salty. But I suspect that was me being SURPRISED by the salt content. I bet I could hack it now.

    Neither hold a candle to good old Scrapple.

    Scrapple was another one of the things my Massachusetts roommates couldn't fathom. I brought a block of it into the apartment. "What's THAT??!?"

    "Scrapple" was, of course, dubbed "spackle" by one of them.

    Mike I'm a little confused how you can be right about so many things, yet be so utterly, completely wrong about this.

    Show us on the doll where the "cheese product" touched you.

    50ish years ago we had to return from the Kancamagus. We put most of our money, enough to get home with our fingers crossed, into the gas tank. We spent the rest on bread and peanut butter. With the rest of the American cheese, onion and relish we ate. I still make them.
    Bread, relish, onion, PB and American Cheese. Had it been some frou frou frommage, doubt I'd still be eating them.
    BTW, that stuff you get at Fast Food Palaces is processed cheese food, NOT American Cheese. Swiss, but only on grilled cheese and generic Velveeta are about it. Anything over $2.50 a pound sucks.

    Yup , used to eat it because it was all we could afford, but I still like it now and then.
    Make a cheese and peanut butter sandwich and cut it in quarters for something to nibble on.
    You'd be amazed what you can create when your shopping budget is $20 a week.
    The other one we had was diced hotdogs fried in a pan and then mixed with brown rice.

    Chicken livers and gizzards, and rice. Very inexpensive (back in the day, anyway). Got me through the dark days of school.

    Ooof! That's what my Ma used to feed us growing up. The thought of chicken livers still makes me gag. They're not on the menu, but apparently you can get fried chicken livers at the KFCs down here.

    Not that unusual or that poor of a food, but about 2x/yr I'd kill for a couple of hotdogs, sliced thin and added to some baked beans, poured over brown bread. (Or the brown bread on the side, buttered.)

    That's some good eatin.

    Sorta like back in the day, pulling some "hot" divorcee out of her booth at the old Car Stop Cafe in Southie, spending the rest of the night at her apartment in the McCormick Projects - and then wondering how the hell low tide at Carson Beach could actually be wafting through the closed windows in the projects at 2am in January...

    Just sayin'

    Cains > Hellmans.

    They don't have Cains in CA, and it's one of the things from home i really miss. I make home made chicken salad, and using Cains makes it 10X better than hellmans.
