After reading about MRE pizza here's an interesting idea -- if you could have one kind of civilian food in an MRE that doesn't exist (or does but is crappy) what would it be?

As weird as this sounds mine would be a salad. Fresh veg or something like that.

I'd have to go with Hot Turkey Sandwich with Fries, gravy and dressing (stuffing)

The cheeseburger you can get lol, its called "trekking burger" and comes in a can. Once you've tried it, you'll be scarred for life! The fries idk, the Poutine is a poor substitute. However, in all seriousness. I do can my own burgers I take on fishing trips. My friends get a kick out of em. I simply put cooked burgers plain on bun in jars and can @15psi for 90 min.

I also pressure can just the hamburger patty(soy works also) for when buns are available locally. BUT, I can only fit 7 in a jar and buns come in 8pk :x
Now if I could find a way to can the Big Mac! I do love burgers :D

Mmmmm kim chee. Has anyone come across that in ROK or Chinese rations? I'd be curious if that can be in a ration as it is pickled.

Agreed. Pickled items have a huge shelf life! I winder if they are to acidic to plastic?
