Americans are not exactly praised for being culinary masters. But I'm happy to announce that instant ramen and microwave popcorn didn't top this list.

A new survey found that Americans placed time with their family high on the list of what makes them happy. With family time comes cooking food and the survey asked what their go-to recipes were.

The top ten dishes aren't very complex, here they are:

  1. Scrambled eggs
  2. Hamburgers
  3. Grilled cheese
  4. Mashed potatoes
  5. Rice
  6. Mac and cheese
  7. Steak
  8. Pancakes or waffles
  9. Omelets
  10. Tacos
