What is your favorite canned food?

My all time favorite is corned beef. Even if I don't want to eat anymore at night, I am still tempted to eat more because corned beef is my favorite. I love it for breakfast. I love it for lunch. I even like it for dinner. I cooked corned beef the other week, sauteeing it with onions and cabbage. My husband oh so loved it. It was his first time to eat corned beef with cabbage. Usually, he just eats it with potatoes and onions, but never with cabbage. I even mix it with pasta instead of ground beef. The taste is heavenly. The next favorite of mine is luncheon meat. I eat it with rice or bread. The only thing I dislike about it is that sometimes its too salty. What canned food do you like so much, mylotters?

I don’t eat too many canned foods but I would have to say tuna in oil would be my favourite. It can be eaten by itself, in a sandwich or added to a recipe I think it’s delicious and good for you too except for the oil, I do prefer it than in brine although the oil is probably not the best for the diet!

mine would have to be tuna and there's this new thing called corned tuna which we love to use for canapes. my mother makes really great wrapped lady finger chilis stuffed with tuna and cheese and she's tried making tuna samosa which was really yummy. tuna's really good for the body too so i like eating it 'cuz i know i'm getting all the omega 3 my body needs and tuna's been proven to delay the onset of alzheimers.

Sometimes I like tuna too. I mix it with mayonaise, some salt and pepper to taste and spread it on my bread. Or sometimes I make tuna omellete.

Corned Tuna? What exactly is that, I have never seen it here in the UK, sounds interesting. I eat a lot of tuna, as you say it is so good for us

Well its tuna which texture is that of a corned beef. For me it doesn't taste any different from the original canned tuna. We have it here in the Philippines.

Well I certainly love corned beef but I think that the canned food I use the most has ti be canned tomatoes. I use them so much in all my cooking - especially Italian. Have yu made corned beef rissoles? My hubby loves them - you just mix corned beef with a little fried onion and mashed potatoes and make it into patties, dip in flour and fry. Easy and delicious!!

I know it would be really nice but I don't eat beef. Well, I like canned food such as french fries, peas, mushrooms, and many more..Today, supermarket shelves carry over 1500 different canned food products. That's more variety, convenience and flavor - plus more nutrition and there are many which I really like. But if asked the favorite it is difficult to say one. Many supermarkets and food stores stock a wide variety of legumes — both dried and canned.

I love sandwich with spread made out of canned tuna but with a lot of finely chapped celery and sweet pickled cucumber. My second best choice is of course the favorite of most myLotters - corned beef whether imported or locally (Philippines)made. I take this together with buns and a glass of soda or cola.

I used to not like imported corned beef, but there is this particular imported one that I started to like. I just can not remember the brand's name. Locally I like argentina better than purefoods

Yes you are right, I have Argentina always in my mind every time I think of corned beef. It's much better than Purefoods.

Corned beef and Spam! However, between the two, I'd rather choose Spam.

Which do you like better, Spam the imported one or the luncheon meat by purefoods?

When we are thinking about canned food there is only one type that I can really think of and enjoy and that is Heinz Baked Beans! I get through quite a few tins each week I have to admit but I know that they are good for you and are full of fibre! I'm not too keen on canned corn beef, I've tasted this in the past and I didn't like it at all! I generally have baked beans on toast for lunch and then I will have a proper cooked meal in the evening which usually consists of meat or fish and some potatoes with vegetables. I like to think that I try and eat healthy when I can although it can be quite expensive. There is perhaps one other food that I can think of that comes in a can and that is tinned sweetcorn! I love sweetcorn almost as much as I like baked beans! Anyway, I don't bother with anything else that comes in tins! Andrew

I think that pork and beans would have to be my favorite canned food item. I have never been much for spam or ravioli. We all have to have our likes and dislike when it comes to canned treats.
• Philippines

Yes we do. Because I have never liked pork and beans. Peace!

Definately tuna from a can! I would eat it all the time if I could, but now people keep telling me these horror stories regarding how cruel the fishermen are to the tuna and also other animals in the sea, such as dolphins, when they fish them, so I feel bad eating tuna with other people who always, always start talking about that!

Fishing for tuna is already banned here in the Philippines.

Hi. aileen2008. I like to eat, pork and beans that has hot dogs in in. And I also like the canned good that has tamales in it. It is so yummy and it is mixed with beef inside of it too. I have never been a huge fan of corned beef at all. I think that I have tried it and I did not like it too much. Maybe, I will have to try it again to see if I will like it this time around. I am glad that you like it though.

My most favorite canned food would be tuna. I also like canned stewed tomatoes. Canned tomatoes of all kinds are probably my most used canned food in recipes.

hey, we're birds of the same feather . but of course, there are brands of corned beef that is superior above all the others. many of them are expensive but there's one reasonably priced and tastes just as good. many canned tunas and sardines are also up my alley. lately i've been meaning to buy canned crab meat but still am thinking twice about it. it's quite expensive and i think it would all be gone in one sitting .

I really love canned corn and canned pork. I know the canned pork looks really gross when you first open it, but when you heat it up on the stove and add barbecue sauce to it, it is incredible! I love how sweet canned corn is and I always forget how much I like it until I open a can to go with dinner.

It used to be Pork & Beans, but now I don't eat that so much. My new favorite canned food will have to be the Ma-Ling. I can eat it without having to fry it, cubed. Or sliced and fried is okay too. I like it with rice and cheese, on sandwiches, with pancit canton, or just alone. :)

Like you, I like corned beef. I even posted a discussion here how to cook corned beef the best way. However, as long as it is corned beef anything goes. I just hate it when it is too salty that's why I'm trying all brands of corned beef available here in our country. I also put corned beef as substitute to ground beef for spaghetti. Next to that is corned tuna or just tuna, fave is century tuna.I can eat it every day but not every meal, of course.:-) If I am too lazy to cook, then, canned tuna is the best alternative for me.;-)

Chicken Under the Sea is best. I love cooking it w/ different kinds of veggies. ;)
