A casual dining favorite in the 1950s is the tuna noodle casserole. No one can say exactly why it was so popular but I’d say because the ingredients were inexpensive and it can be cooked in a relatively short period of time.

Baked Alaska is an ice cream cake with a meringue shell. According to NPR, “it was once an incredibly opulent dish, requiring a full kitchen staff and a significant amount of time.” In the 1950s, baked Alaska was a dinner party staple.
