We've all been there. Lying in bed at night dreaming about turkey twizzlers. EFF YOU JAMIE WE STILL WON'T FORGIVE YOU. Ahem.
There are some childhood food/drinks that you just can't let go of. They bring a whole load of nostalgia and in some cases a whole load of rumours too. Seriously, remember that kid who turned orange from drinking Sunny D? We all do. It didn't stop us though. It's just too delightful.
Here are some grown up versions of your favourite childhood meals that you can cook yourself and live the dream.
Ah glorious mac and cheese. The ultimate comfort food. We reckon making mac and cheese from scratch instead of getting it from a packet or a box is pretty grown up. This recipe uses a sprinkling of bread crumbs too, so it makes me feel a little bit more sophisticated than that time I just melted an entire block of Cathedral City onto some pasta and pretended it was reasonable.

Oh yeah. We went there. The true champion of school dinners - the turkey twizzler. These things are not the MOST healthy option, but some people are deep frying mars bars out there so at least it's not that level. Whack some smiley face potatoes on the side and you're sorted.

If you're always craving a fish finger sandwich with a dollop of ketchup then how about upping the ante and making it a fishcake burger. Fishcakes are super easy to make and can be made out of leftovers or even frozen fish, so they're really cheap too. This slightly more adult version of the fish finger sarnie is delectable. Best of all you can mix up the type of fish you use and find the perfect fishcake for you.

Now your standard grilled cheese is a classic weekend brekkie that you probably chowed down on whilst watching SMTV or whatever that one with Dick and Dom was. We've picked out a load of more adult versions of a grilled cheese for you right here. This one has smoked gouda and roasted peppers. MMmm.
