What do you have to have to put on your food before you eat it.

When you eat, so you have a certain thing that you must have on the table to put on your food before you will eat it, like my hubby he puts hot sauce on every thing he eats, some puts ketchup on everything. Me I like cheese on just bout all that I eat, or I put sour cream on things like meat loaf, or steak. We use a lot of ranch dressing on things other than salads too. What is the one thing you got to have when you sit down to eat, before you think it is complete, would it be ketchup, sour cream, barbecue sauce, what is your favorite thing? I had a friend that put chili on scrambled eggs, it look horrible, but you know what it was good.

I think the only thing I have to have on my food is salt and pepper. I don't really care for hot stuff and ketchup, to me, is only for certain foods, like french fries or scrambled eggs. I do use Ranch dressing on some things like fried chicken and of course with a vegetable plate. But I don't really have anything special I need to put on all of my food.

I can eat chilli sauce or pickled chillies with almost any cold and lot of warm dishes. One of recent hits in my family (I sharing love for hot dishes with my father) are pickled chillies sprinkled by salt. But almost universal evergreen are pickled chillies mixed in blender with garlic, salt and a bit of olive oil... Well, my friends call me "iron-plated mouth" sometimes, but who cares when it's so tasty :o) So I fully understand your friend's taste for chilli on scrambled eggs... Um, time to finish, I'm starting salivate...

my husband puts hot sauce on just about everything! i am a ketchup and salt person depending on what i am eating of course. ketchup on steak, meatloaf, hamburgers, eggs sometimes and pork chops. i try not to salt my food too much anymore as we all know that is not good for the blood pressure. i like barbecue sauce on my chicken.

Hello bdugas, When I was with my parents, we have to have vinegar mix with lemon juice and some soy sauce, every one in my family loves it..It may sound so horrible to some but we just grew up loving it..LOL, Now that I am married, my husband and I will always have any hot sauce to complete and to give us more satisfaction in everything we eat!

There really isn't anything that I need to put on my food before I'll eat it. I'm usually pretty ok with how the food is when I get it. Sometimes I'll put on some salt but that's pretty rare. I rarely use ketchup anymore either. Sometimes I use honey on some chicken, cheese on other things. I generally eat garlic on a lot of foods so I guess that's what you're really looking for.

it really depends on what i'm having. if it's meat, like burgers, hotdogs, or porkchops it's usually some hot sauce, mayonnaise, and mustard. if its fish or veggies, i put a couple drops of vinegar. there was time that i always have to put lemon and soy sauce or what i'm having...always.

i'm not really obsessive-compulsive about it. but sometimes i put "pinakurat" it's a spicy sweet vinegar of sorts here in our country. i love dipping meatloafs, hotdogs, grilled chicken/fish, etc. in it. it really spices up the taste!!

Well if I have chicken, I will put hot sauce on it...If I eat pizza, I like the blue cheese dressing.. For my french fries, it would be honey mustard or spicy ketchup. I also like to eat mayo on steak fries or chicken tenders..

If we are having beef, then I must have horseradish. If we have lamb then I need a dollop of mint sauce. Mint sauce also goes well with roast chicken. I have tried to cut down on the salt consumption since it is so bad for the health. My husband likes tomato ketchup, but not on everything.
