For me: Grilled cheese sandwiches. Especially if there's tomato soup on hand. My mother made them with white bread and Velveeta, I do otherwise, but it's still a grilled cheese.
Pepperoni pizza. The first kind I had and still my favorite. 60 years, probably.

Hmmm, melted cheese, bread, and tomatoes. Maybe that's a theme.

My Grandmother made GCS with Government Cheese, those big bricks that you had to chisel off a hunk of. Made for the best grilled cheese ever to hit bread.

O sure!

And my rainbow soup. Potato soup, with onions and vinegar, topped with cheddar cheese and bacon, and or avocado and sour cream. Great healing powers.

Hot soup on a cold day hits the spot, another fan here of grilled cheese & tomato soup, a perfect dipping combo. Peanut butter & jelly with a cold glass of milk is good too but haven't tried that in many years. Never underestimate the power of pizza, but delux/combos are my choice, even with anchovies (they have to be on the side as Spacedudette can not tolerate them).

Bake beans would be one.

Macaroni and cheese. Not the box kind--we never had that when I was a kid. My mother by-Gods made it from scratch. I have her recipe, and I frankly make it better than she does (my mother is not a very good cook), and there's nothing more soothing. Now if only I could teach someone else in this household how to make it . . . .

Used to be McDonalds. As I've aged, my bowels have weighed in with their own opinion on that.

Twice, you left an open quote without a close quote - which basically dooms the future of everything in your future light cone to be a quote spoken by you.
But luckily, they're not smart quotes, so open and close are the same character. So technically, they're matched, but meaning your actual quote is:

I have to pick just one?

The Wife and I both like to cook. If Iím at the controls, I like a gooey grilled cheese sandwich: rustic bread if I have it, Raclette or GruyŤre cheese, a little salt, a little pepper, and maybe some Dijon if Iím in the mood...or for something extra, Honey Crisp apple slices. If Iím feeling ambitious, Southern-style chicken and dumplings.

My favorite comfort foods from The Wife are tater tot hot dish; meat loaf, mashed potatoes, and peas; and most especially, Avgolťmono soup.

I'm sorry, I'm not understanding that. I see no quotes.

Potato and cheese soup with cornbread.

I don't eat it very often, though, because I enjoy being able to pass through doors.

Well, nuts. I'm sure those are someone's comfort food.

Just looked like opened and closed single quotes surrounding an empty string, to me. But that's a British thing.

Fixed.

The repetition is automatic, in the board software.

ETA: that's a question

That sounds right. I'm not sure if I posted that from the computer or the phone, since I've got Tapatalk signatures turned off.

Sometimes I get cravings for things I haven't had for a while. Right now it is cheese and crackers with maybe a little smoked sausage, maybe sometime in the new year.
