While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

Salute to the Salisbury Steak! Three cheers for that sickly-sweet glob of cherry cobbler! September 10 is TV Dinner Day - tune into the nostalgic joviality.

In 1954, Swanson's introduced the first frozen meal coined with the "TV Dinner" phrase - feeding into the nation's latest and greatest newfangled obsession, the boob tube.

Today, the frozen meals category is a more than five-billion-dollar industry - proving some things are worth a rerun.
