Yes, such as a hamburger bun... with hamburger meat on it.

The rapid urbanization of America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, in conjunction with and partially enabled by the development of industrial food processing, obliterated a lot of folk culinary traditions. Early industrial food was relatively poor, and quality was sidelined in favor of quantity even before wartime rationing kicked in.

In the post-war decades Americans were basically inventing an entirely new food culture for themselves, and it was pretty bleak. The generation that emerged after the war grew up with much less deprivation, so they were able and eager to have more interesting food, but they had inherited no knowledge of how to make it.

So they started experimenting. Initially, they used ingredients that were close at hand, which is to say, things that were convenient to produce and distribute using the technology of the time - which was rapidly improving the flavor, nutrition, and variety of industrial foods available. The early experiments were wildly imaginative, but did not endure. The big winner of the 70s was the invention of fusion cuisine, which succeeded where so many abominations failed by employing techniques and recipes from the still-maintained folk culinary traditions of parts of the world that had not been crushed for three consecutive generations under modernity's baby steps.

That'd be more believable if the Joy of Cooking hadn't been in continuous publication since 1931 and contain helpful recipes on how to cook everything from possum to squirrel to muskrat.

Oh, people made do with canned food. It wasn't until later that they were rich enough to really go nuts with the stuff, though.

Nothing says delicious like butterflied hotdogs with dill spears in them floating on a sea of tomato sauce.
