My MIL and SIL eat that all the time, I had no idea it was actually a thing.  They just call it chili spaghetti and dump a can of chili on spaghetti noodles.  I haven't tried it yet.  Sounds a little odd, but I can see it being ok.

It's not that kind of chili. That's why I say it is a different dish with a similar name.
It's nothing at all like canned chili, Wolf brand for example. Canned chili, at least around here is (I'll call it) Texas-style chili.

Cincinnati Chili is made with ground beef but it contains totally different spices, cinnamon, for example, and isn't hot in terms of being spicy like Texas chili is.

The spices are more of a Mediterranean blend, since the family that started it immigrated from Macedonia. Different chains (Skyline, Gold Star, Empress, Dixie, and tons of others) use different spice mixes, so you're getting a combination of one of more of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, chocolate, and bay leaves. It also uses traditional chili spices like chili powder and cumin.

My preferred Cincinnati Chili delivery device is Skyline's Chili Deluxe Burrito - Chili (either with or without beans) served in a large tortilla and topped with lettuce, tomato, cheese, and dollop of sour cream. Yummmmm!

Rice with a fried egg and soy sauce is the finest meal you can ever eat ;D

I'd agree with you, but the yolk still has to be runny.

Please explain this dish - you take rice, put a fried egg (sunny side up?) on top, and then pour soy sauce over all of it?  Because that combines 3 of my youngest daughter's 3 foods and her birthday is this week and this may be what she will be served for breakfast that day.

We love eggs over rice. It's one of our favorite camping breakfast. We always make more rice the night before and in the morning, reheat it in a skillet with some flavored oil (keeps us from having to mince up shallots and garlic), make the eggs and serve with soy sauce and most recently a little of the Gochujang sauce.

Basically, egg fried rice. Sounds tasty.

In my original post, I'm talking about a bowl/plate of plain old white rice with a fried egg (I like it over medium or hard) on top of the rice and soy sauce (amounts very depending on your taste). No other spices or ingredients for me ;D

Fun read.   As a kid, my fave after school snack was peanut butter and mayo on rye bread.  It was also my go-to cafeteria option at college when they served mystery meat for dinner.   I don't know if this is a Chicago thing or what, but I had friends who ate the same thing.   But I've only found one person since then. 

The other item is making a simple salad of iceberg lettuce and bleu cheese dressing.  Place this on top of top of chili or spaghetti.  I got this idea from my first job as a waitress, and the older ladies all did this on breaks.  It looks quite disturbing, but it works!

This tends to horrify most Texans and chili purists, but here goes!

Cincinnati Chili -

3-way:

Spaghetti, chili, cheddar cheese

4-way:

Spaghetti, chili, cheese and diced onion OR kidney beans

5-way:

Spaghetti, chili, cheese, diced onion, kidney beans

It tends to invoke strong opinions from non-natives, either way.  Most seem to either love it or hate it. I don't know that I've ever encountered someone who tasted it and said "It's ok."

It's a lonely world down here in FL without it, although some Publix stores carry it now.  There's actually a Skyline Chili parlor in St. Pete, which is just under 2 hours from me. I've been known to drive there just for that.  :'(

www.skylinechili.com

I like Cincinnati chili but don't love it. My favorite local chili place does it along with a Texas chili and one they call Terlingua Red, which I do love. I usually get that in a bowl (no beans) with cornbread on the side and parmesan cheese and diced tomatoes, but sometimes I do a bowl of three-way or their Frito pie.

A new favorite. Pickled Vidalia onions, with homemade pimiento cheese, and buttermilk crackers.

White (homemade, by preference) bun, with butter, strawberry jam, garlic sausage, mayo, and cheddar cheese.
I am fond of variations of this, with different types of jam and cold cuts - my cousins refer to this as ham 'n jam.

Ranch is the condiment of choice for nearly everything in my area: dipping sauce for sweet potato fries or cheese sticks, or on nachos instead of sour cream.

And I always drag my bacon through the maple syrup.

I'm from Chicago and have never heard of this combo! What neighborhood are you from?

But my fave after school snack was braunschweiger on saltines. The perfect fatty, salty combo. I stopped eating meat long ago, but I still remember that with fondness.

My sister always put catsup on her eggs. And her Polish sausage, which my grandmother thought was hilarious. For the record, the proper accompaniments for white Polish sausage, or biala kielbasa, are sauerkraut and horseradish. My grandmother put a little applesauce in her sauerkraut to balance the flavor, and she prepared her own horseradish (grated horseradish, vinegar, salt).

North Shore burbs.  It's easier just to say Chicago. 

The ketchup on eggs was new to me when I got to college, but I also watched my roomie's mom make scrambled eggs one morning with water.  It grossed me out until I tasted them, and I've made them that way ever since!

Your grandma's horseradish sounds yummy.

When I lived in Georgia shrimp and grits was a thing. I prefer my grits drowned in butter, sans shrimp (I'm allergic).

Shrimp and grits in the south is such a commonplace meal that it wouldn't occur to me to think of it as an unusual food combination.

One that I have found odd is that some people put ketchup on their grits. :o I'm not a huge fan of grits, but oh, ehell no way would I eat them with ketchup. A little butter, maybe some cheese...or shrimp, but never ketchup.

What have you got? Is it food? Is it for me? I want it whatever it is!
