For me it's corned beef hash. I love the canned dog food style type from the supermarket, even if I do get most of my recommended daily sodium intake in one sitting. One would think stumbling across the occasional restaurant or diner that has homemade corned beef hash would be better but for some reason those bigger chunks or potatoes and chewy meat with whatever onions/bell peppers they add just doesn't do it for me.

I've even made my own at home and tried cutting things smaller but can't get it as good as the Alpo-style.

Woof.

My daughter tried to make "healthy, organic" green bean casserole one Thanksgiving. Fresh, organic green beans and mushrooms, homemade cream of mushroom soup, etc. Blech!

The next Thanksgiving, we just used all that regular ol' canned stuff to make it and one again it was delicious!

I agree about the burgers and pizza. I might try making pizza some time using the dough you can buy at the grocer, though.

I do not make donuts or pastry. So those would be store bought treats for us.

Pancakes. I stopped making them when I went extremely low carb a few years ago. So, now, for us, pancakes are treat food, especially when we travel. But, it doesnít make me like them all that much. A good pancake house can make dependably good pancakes. There is some fuss when I have to make them. So, I suppose I do prefer eating them at a restaurant.

I donít do good barbeque at home eithsr. If there is a good barbeque place around, we would go there amd eat pork!

Nothing yet. If I have something good while out, I go on a relentless pursuit to emulate and perfect. Heck, I brew my own beer, cider and wine ... though I do buy my sparkling wine (not so relentless on that particular venue). Anytime I try an "old favorite" from my youth, it's gag-worthy.



Thinking hard about ready-to-eat stuff in my house... it's musli cereal, corn/tortillia chips, tortillas, different kinds of crackers, dehydrated fruit trail-mix... more convenience stuff than anything else.

ITA, I was horrified, when I ordered cbh at a diner & they served up chunks of real meat, I much prefer the sloppy canned ones. There is a Scottish recipe called stovies, which uses canned corned beef & potatoes which you might like too, google it.

Kombucha. Thai curries. The homemade has never equaled store bought or restaurant obtained. At least, not yet!

It’s a pretty small list. I prefer my own pancakes, pizza, bread, and the like.

Condiments usually aren’t with the effort for me to make, although I have done so in the past just to try my hand at it. Same thing with alcohol. It takes too much time and the variety available commercially is too enticing.

I do prefer professionally made:

Bagels
Poutine
Potato chips.

I have never been able to replicate the best of these.
