Depression Era Foods

What were the most popular Great Depression meals of that era? Surprisingly, a few of these were made by my mother and grandmother, traditions, I'm sure, from those frugal years. As you read this list, you'll notice how simple and basic they are. Sandwiches are featured prominently, which is a reminder of how important it is to have bread-making skills. When a single loaf of homemade bread might cost just a dollar or two when you buy and stock up on the ingredients in bulk, it makes sense for fresh bread to be a key component of a Great Depression menu.
