What would you do if you won the lottery? Buy a car? A house? A college degree? A hot dog? Some Reddit users started a discussion about what cheap foods they would still eat even if they could afford to eat caviar every night. These are the foods they would still eat even with millions in the bank.
1. Buttered Bagels
You read that right, buttered bagels. Not bagels with cream cheese, bagels with butter. I can’t say I agree with this, but apparently, Reddit users really like them.
This quick dish can be enjoyed as a snack or a meal. Most folks pick them up in the frozen section, but you can make your own at home, too.
3. Baked Potatoes
Baked potatoes with your favorite toppings top the list of food that folks on Reddit would never give up, no matter how much money they have.
4. Grilled Cheese And Tomato Soup
This classic American favorite would be nearly impossible to give up for most Americans. All that gooey comfort goes a long way to creating great memories.
Ramen can be purchased for so cheap that it’s no wonder a lot of people grow up on the stuff. But it tastes so good that it’s hard to stop eating once you’ve started, and many people wouldn’t stop for love or money.
6. Corn Dogs
This game-day favorite is also popular with kids. Many American kids have grown up on corn dogs and think of them as great comfort food.
7. Macaroni And Cheese
There aren’t too many American kids who didn’t get mac and cheese in some form when they were growing up. But you can make it better than the stuff from the box. Give this homemade mac and cheese recipe a shot.
8. Cheese Quesadilla
A cheese quesadilla is often enjoyed as a quick snack, a breakfast on the go, or a last-minute dinner when the day runs late.
9. Peanut Butter And Jelly
This lunchtime classic is an American favorite. Many kids fondly remember finding them in their lunchboxes.
10. Rice And Beans
Rice and beans are a cheap food classic. You can’t get much more affordable than a bag of rice and a bag of beans. Especially when those bags make multiple meals.
Tacos are a part of the American culture in a way that many other foods will never be. This Mexican favorite is engrained in the minds of most Americans as being one of the ultimate comfort foods that they would never give up.
12. Fast Food Burgers
Apparently, while gourmet burgers are great, fast food burgers just “hit different.” So, no matter how much money Reddit readers have, they’ll still hit the drive-thru.
