12. Salisbury Steak
This slice of meat, named for Dr. James Salisbury, an American physician who studied food and nutrition in the late 1800s, bears little resemblance to a steak. It is made with ground beef shaped into oblong patties roughly the size of a small steak, smothered in gravy, and served with mashed potatoes.
11. Fluffernutter Sandwiches
Fluffernutter sandwiches are made by slathering two slices of spongy white bread with peanut butter and marshmallow fluff, then sandwiching them together. This sticky, gooey, highly-processed delicacy could be packed in lunch sacks or enjoyed as an after-school snack.
10. Franks and Beans
This retro dish combines chunks of hot dogs with savory baked beans for a filling main dish or side that may bring back childhood memories. Mom could whip up this treat at home with a can of beans, sliced hot dogs, and sautéed onions, or it could be purchased ready-made in a can. VanCamp’s still makes canned Beanee Weenee in five different flavors: Original, Chilee, Baked Beans, Barbeque, and Hickory Smoked.
