Kid's scifi with nothing but potato salad?

I am looking for a book from my boyfriend's childhood. What he remembers: kids controlling a spaceship who can't get the food replicator to make anything other than potato salad.

Other notes that might help:
1) Boyfriend grew up abroad (in Africa), so while English language, this could be English, Australian, Canadian, or American.
2) This was definitely science fiction.
3) He would have been the right age to read this in the early 1980s.
I've tried asking this on abebooks (under BookSleuth) and through children's librarian friends and...no luck. He's having a really hard time of it of late, so I hoped to find this and maybe cheer him up a bit.
Thank you for any ideas.
