I've gone through this suggestion page and while I've seen alot of suggestions for things like adding new food items, chocolate milk or sandwiches I have not really seen much in the way of suggestions for expanding upon the uses of already existing food items.
First off, I shall state. I do not play modded minecraft. Since I am on a gaming console there is no way for me to download or implement anything that is not put into the game by the creators. So saying that there is a 'mod for that' is beyond unhelpful.
Another note, I am not going to include images or diagrams for these recipes because again this is something that can be worked out by more creative minds than mine.
Nor am I going to encourage anyone to suggest things like potion effects on food. Its food. It serves the purpose of filling hunger, and I think that is a fine purpose! I am also not going to suggest anything that uses items that do not exist in vanilla game.
I would like to see more uses for the existing items. At the moment things like meat, you can roast it, but little else. We can make bowls, but only for mushroom stew. Carrots have pretty much no use past eating raw, feeding to pigs or putting on a stick. Potatoes, one of the most versatile foods in reality, you can only roast them. You can only bake one kind of cake and cocoa which once you have it growing is incredibly plentiful also only has very limited uses for either cookies or dye.
So why can we not then put some thought into expanding what recipes we can prepare. As for how much hunger they fill, I say not much more than their component parts, much as when you take mushrooms and bowls and make stew you fill more than if you eat the things separately (well except the bowl). If we were to prepare -say taking the base recipe of mushroom stew and add carrot and potato, we would have vegetable stew, and possibly only an additional hunger filled. Add meat and you could really make something impressive.
Stews I think would be a great way to go, not only does it give more uses for things like carrots and potatoes, but it also gives more reasons to have bowls on hand.
Cakes, I suggest that on that if we traded out one of the redundant ingredients (like one sugar or wheat) for something like cocoa, or carrot. we could have a different type of cake. I honestly do not suggest this would change the amount it fills or any other mechanic. It is just an idea for making use of existing ingredients in a fun way.
Other ideas of various uses of items:
Potato Bread (basic bread recipe, but with potato instead)
Flan or some kind of pudding (sugar, milk and an egg)
Potato Salad (milk, couple potatoes, carrot. Possibly an egg)
Jello (possibly made from slimes? and sugar.)
I'll add more as either I think of the ideas or people give suggestions.
Again as a note. No I'm not giving the exact details of things like 'how much health to fill' overall there seems to be a sort of math involved with the current recipes and I say whatever one they use with that would be fine for figuring out how much a new one fills.
Cooking is something I enjoy, and farming and cooking in minecraft is something that often feels both intuitive and fun. I would love to have more I could do with existing ingredients.
Did you know? You can make Rabbit Stew with bowls, too!
Seriously, you're not giving details? You're thread will be locked as soon as a moderator sees it. You need to figure out the details by yourself. If you let the other users suggest it, that will be "Idea Farming", which will also result in your thread being locked.
Idea farming and vague suggestions are not tolerated on Minecraftforum.net.
Your "I won't add in the hunger stats." Is going ger your thread locked.

You know who can tell me something I already know? Me. All the time. I'm really good at telling me stuff I already know. I don't need help in that department. I don't know about others, but I can't imagine I'm alone here.
When posting suggestion threads, you are required to include enough information to provide for a valid discussion. This idea is overly vague, since it merely lists the foods being suggested without providing any other information about the food (recipes, hunger values, etc.).
