If they have to prepare their own dinner after a hard day, this is a choice they think is delicious.

2. Bangers and mash covered in gravy.

The mash that goes really sloppy when you pour gravy over it. And that's how British people seem to like it.

3. Fish and chips on a Friday night.

Don't forget to cover it with salt and vinegar if you want to experience the whole wonder.

4. Chip shop chips served open and eaten on the walk home.

Apparently, this definitely counts as a meal if you eat it on the way back from the pub.

5. Cover them in cheese, gravy, or curry sauce.

This is an acceptable breakfast, lunch, or dinner. But it's an especially "good dinner" when you get in late and all you have is sliced bread in the freezer and a can of beans in the cupboard.

10. Spaghetti hoops on toast.
