The Romans ate many of the food with which we are familiar today, but may have cooked them differently. The Romans certainly had sausages, pickled eggs, mustard, boiled and roasted meat etc. One of their 'gifts' to the world was also olive oil which is possibly more popular today than it was a thousand years ago, after the end of the Roman Empire. Bread was also a stpale of their diet as well as cheese and other dairy products.
The Romans also ate some dishes which are not generally found on menus in Europe today. Dormice were a particular favourite (always roasted) they also enjoyed the livers from rabbits as a delicacy. Fallow deer, kids' livers and wild boar were also very popular.
After the main course, the Romans often had a fruit course, with much the same type of fruits enjoyed today. For the affluent, copious amounts of wine were also consumed with all meals.

A little FYI: They ate a version of a turdcuken but used a goat, pig, and cow instead and roasted them. They also used a sort of fish sauce called garum- this was one of their most prized condiments. They also ate laying on their side and most roman houses did not have a kitchen-
only the upper classes did. The average roman ate believe or not!

Things such as peacock tounge, and ostrich.  The romans did not have sugar so instead they used honey to sweeten their food.
