What do you eat for a mid-night snack?

My wife and I just returned from 2 weeks in Seoul. We have jet lag and are up at 3:00 am. We went through the various options for going back to sleep. Our youngest, a 19 year old did not replenish foods, so the cupboards are pretty bare. What to eat? Apple & Finlandia Swiss? Sardines, cheese & toast? We settled on open faced tuna sandwiches w/ Calmata olives, mayo, lettuce, tomato, Vidalia onion slice on sesame semolina bread, with a glass of Dynamite Vineyards Merlot. While eating my best beloved popped the question, "What do Chowhounds eat for mid-night snacks?" Which lead me to this post. What is you favorite mid-night snack?
Good night, moon.
Passadumkeg, always love your posts!
I'm a night-owl, not getting home till 11:30 most nights. The easiest snack is allways a bowl of cereal. But, peanut butter on a Wasa rye crip bread is great as well. I sometimes will fry a single egg, or even make a small salad. Fry bacon at midnight?! Sure, sounds good too. When they're cooked, hardboiled eggs or egg salad is a fave.
Really guilty pleasure? Either Goldfish pretzel crackers (have to share with the dogs) or some Chicken In a Biskit crackers. WHY did they have to stop making my beloved Bac-Oh's??
Favorite mid-night snack?
Whatever my wife will bring from the kitchen to our bedroom...............
OTOH if I have to go to the kitchen>>>
I usually make a small plate of cheese and crackers or toast, and some raw veg
I attack leftovers from supper if we've cooked at home.
I never do the cereal and milk thing, don't find it satisfying.
Last night, I had some brie on carr's water crackers, green grapes, and baby carrot at 2am
I often eat late with the hours I work and usually don't get to sleep until 1-2, but I am always up by 6. If I want a snack, it is usually
Cheese and crackers
Fried egg sandwich
Even a sliced hard boiled egg with a little mayo, s/p on 1 slice of bread and fold it over
Grilled cheese or just a simple cheese sandwich with tomato, not grilled just toasted
A slice of toast with cream cheese
NO fruit, it doesn't satisfy me at all
NO cereal. Only at breakfast for me.
Depending on if I just want a nibble or something a bit more substantial, I either have a couple stuffed grapeleaves (which are ALWAYS in the fridge), or I microwave a Cederlane Cous-Cous and Veggie wrap. Sometimes it's Pace mild poured over cream cheese with lime Tostitos. (I had all three last night!)
