What Unusual Concoctions Do You Enjoy?

Recommended Posts

I had a few that I thought were weird, but reading these I don't think I can top any of these.

I like peanut butter with apples (which a few others have mentioned). I used to love white bread with margarine and sliced bananas. I like to make chili and eat it with frito corn chip scoops. And one of my favorite snacks when I was a kid (other than the peanut butter with apples) was sour cream with fruit, usually peaches, raspberries, and bananas.

After reading these I dont eat anything too strange either... just tonite I had kielbasa with sauerkraut and applesauce. Its the sweet and sour mix together. My grandmother used to eat tomato soup on spaghetti and pork and bean sandwiches. My fiances stepfather eats spinach with mashed potatoes and ketchup mixed together. I dont think I could do that!

These are funny...:)

In college, I used to make Cheetos/Mashed Potato Sandwiches (sometimes with a little gravy -- normally around 2:00 a.m. -- haha)

I think pretty much anything in a corn tortilla is fair game -- salsa and guacamole make everything taste good!

I still like making homemade hash browns with over easy eggs (break the yolk and yum yum)

Oh and "Bronco's Mexican Suprise"

I take a casserole dish and spray oil on it.

Keep layering the following ingredients in order

Tortilla chips (I like Tostitos Gold or used to)

Refried Beans

Taco Seasoned Meat

Cheese

Layer that to the top - Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 360 degrees.

Top with Sour Cream, Guac or Salsa and serve

I love this thread - I've been laughing as I read all four pages!!! Thank you!

So many people think it's gross, and swear they won't try it, but once they do they LOVE it:

Chocolate Covered Potato Chips (ones with ridges are strong enough to hold the choc.)

YUM!!!!

I love vanilla icecream with berry jam on it.

tunafish w/ mayo on potato chips

baked potatos with shredded cheddar and ranch dressing (I ate this every day in college at the dining hall!)

chicken breast cooked in apricot jam

I'm sure there's more, but I'm drawing a blank right now................

I guess the most unusual concoction that I eat is my mom's "Newfie Dinner".

Consists of cabbage, carrots, potatoes, turnip all boiled in a huge pot along with salt beef (or sometimes ham).

Trust me, it grows on you....... :P;)

Not that tasty, but sure as heck good for ya!

Hugs.

That sounds very familiar. I orginally came from Nova Scotia and a lot of the Newfie food was there as well. I have Newfoundland relatives who now live here in the US and many 'one pot' meals came with them.

In gluten-free days: apple pie topped with mustard pickles. Could still do this with a gluten-free pie.

Cream of Buckwheat cereal, stir in any god gluten-free trail mix (nuts, seeds, dried fruit) and sprinkle on cinnamon sugar. Claire

OMG--when I ate dairy, I used to always eat potato chips dipped in cottage cheese! I've never heard of anyone else who did it :D

I like Potato Chips with Cream Cheese.

Cooked Shrimp, Mayo & Spanish Olives. BTW, are Spanish Olives gluten-free?

In the fall I love to eat warm (must be homemade) applesauce on top of Yukon Gold mashed potatoes instead of gravy. Gotta have a little cinnamon in the applesauce.

french fries with mayo and ketchup--used to love that on occasion. hmmm, i can't think of anything really weird i eat now, although i'm sure my dh would think of some! i did grow up eating peanut butter and mayo sandwiches in my lunch. i know, most people think its henious--but if you think about it, it really the perfect food combination: you have the dry, sweet peanut butter which is perfectly complimented by the moist, tangy mayo or miracle whip :)

I used to eat peanut butter and miracle whip sandwiches as a kid too! I never heard of anyone else that did that. Now it sounds pretty gross....but it was yummy then! :D I also love (still) peanut butter and butter sandwiches. I would bring them to school and some of the kids thought that it was peanut butter and potatoes! I might be strange but not that strange ;)

My favorite things are all southern things I learned from my east Texas mom....Collards with ham (yum!), fried okra (coated with corn meal) (triple yum!), and cornbread dressing....it has boiled egg, celery, onion, some chopped chicken, salt/peper (to die for). My non-southern hubby and my kids adore these....although the okra took awhile for them to warm up to. When I really feel indulgent, I do up the fried okra and eat the whole package...better than french fries. And best of all, these items are naturally gluten free so I don't have to give them up! :lol:

Love this thread--I always used to dip my french fries in a chocolate shake--that's weird? Hmmmmmmmm and cottage cheese and doritoes, I used to smash the doritoes and add them to the cottage cheese--sometimes I added tuna! Princessa--I used to eat peanut butter and miracle whip sandwiches with a fresh tomato slice added--most of your ideas are shared ideas--not so weird huh. The cabbage mixture is a well known Weight Watchers meal--my mom made that for years. We aren't so weird!!!!!!!!!! Deb

Well, I don't think I have the winner, but I may as well throw mine into the mix -- great thread!

a bowl of peas and corn, heated, topped with cottage cheese and S&P

baby carrots dipped in mustard

potato chips topped with dill pickle slices

a spoon of peanut butter dipped into the chocolate chip bag; eat off the chips and repeat dipping

baked potato dipped in ketchup (I don't think this is weird, but people tell me it is)

deli style ham wrapped around cream cheese, a cooked asparagus spear, and a scallion

before gluten-free:

salami and butter sandwiches

ritz crackers topped with peanut butter and hershey's chocolate syrup

cheez its with cream cheese

raw oats, peanut butter, brown sugar, and soy milk stirred into a "mush"

That's all I can think of right now!

I just wanted to report that I continued my applesauce experiments -the answer was obvious, once I thought about it: cinnamon, of course! So now I've got: warm applesauce, mixed with some coconut cream (the creamier the better) and cinnamon. Tastes like apple pie, yum....

What???? There are people in this world who from birth don't understand fried okra??? I'm from the South, too, and cornbread dressing and fried okra should never need explaining in any company :)

Gotta admit though, that despite my southern heritage, I've never been a fan of any kind of greens.

Question for CMCM: What okra do you get that you don't have to worry about gluten? I'm assuming you just buy the okra and bread it yourself?

I am one of those people. :D I really don't know what okra is. I'm from a place where we think it's weird when people don't understand fish tacos :D:lol:

It's the only veggie I don't like.

I was born in Canada, migrated to New England and now live in Pennsylvania. I like okra. I find the trick is not to overcook it so it gets mushy. Herre we can sometimes find it frozen - that's much better than canned. Claire
