Unusual Combinations

Recommended Posts

Most of these make sense from a culinary standpoint. To me bacon on ice cream is a natural fit. Same with bacon and chocolate. Bacon jam is awesome. A combination I LOVE is rosemary, chocolate and blue cheese sauce on venison. Another I love is ancho chile with chocolate. Strawberries and balsamic are glorious - some may find that unusual but I don't. Garlic ice cream. Grape jelly on burgers. Vanilla beans and pork. I don't think that any combination would surprise me except those that would not make culinary sense such as those items used together on "Chopped". Those are intriguing like maybe geoduck, okra and Oreos or Fruit Loops, burrata and duck. Or those horrid jello and cottage cheese salads with raisins, carrots and marshmallows. Shudder.

Strawberries and Balsamic are great. I make a summer salad with strawberries and mandarins with baby lettuces and balsamic.

I have had Grape jelly on burgers and I put cranberry sauce on my pork burgers. Yum.

My grandmother used to make lime jello with cottage cheese. :)

This one isn't all that strange, but something you might not have thought of: strawberries dipped in sour cream and then rolled in brown sugar. Absolute Heaven!

Ok, I ain't got much. Let's see, salt and pepper on cantaloupe is good. Don't use too much pepper or you'll get all sneezy. Then you have salt and pepper and green stuff on your cantaloupe.

Mashed potatoes on the farm always had the peas and corn mixed in and the gravy in a well in the center.

Potato salad sandwiches are good.

Oatmeal with olive oil and salt and pepper and garlic.

The wedding sandwiches sound good!

My dad called bologna sandwiches Whitmore steak, making fun of one of the guys he knew who was kind of a skinflint. I think the guy ended up owning the local cable company later...

Meatie,

OMG! so funny.

Tell your son, T. that all I can think of is the 3 Stooges when they ate baloney sandwiches with whipped cream.

My brother made us try that once.

( and yes, I watched those idiots when I was kid :lol: )

and still do occasionally as an adult.

Who doesn't love a good slap fest?

I never saw the 3 Stooges do that!

I thought my son made it up!

Maybe he saw that episode. :o

The funniest part is we indulged him and put the spray can of whipped cream on the table right along with the ketchup, mustard and pickle relish! You should have seen the lil 7 year old spraying whipped cream straight down the length of the hot dog while the rest of us did the mustard or relish!

Hubby squeezed the banana from the base of the peel.....I call that disgusting, but he grins from ear to ear. And then, puts it on whole wheat bread with peanut butter and honey.

...it's not the recipe, it's the method! :rolleyes:

This makes sense to me. Similar to beef satay - grilled skwered beef with a creamy peanut butter sauce.

As a kid . . . ketchup on eggs, ketchup on bologna, ketchup on bread . . . anything really. UNTIL . . . mom tried to save money (five of us kids eating ketchup on anything) and made "home-made" tomato juice & vinegar ketchup. Cured us all of our ketchup addictions.

Grandma always did the salt on watermelon thing. I tried it but didn't go for it. It was always a treat to get spam at her house, too :D

Corn, mashed potatos & gravy all mixed together = yum. I like my potato chips (preferably BBQ) as a crunchy layer on my pbj. Growing up, we always just ate our French Toast with butter and granulated sugar. Not weird . . . just not normal. I didn't know that it wasn't normal until I went to camp and they only served it with syrup. As a kid, I ate my waffles with butter and jelly.

My grandma loved Spam too-my dad would make it on Saturdays for breakfast sometimes with fried eggs.

To use up stale Italian bread, my mom would make a dish that would include stale bread cubes, spinach, beans, olive oil and garlic. We would also have baloney chopped up in scrambled eggs. The baloney cooked first in butter with onion. Really good!

My weirdest one was probably with hot dogs. I'd line my bun with potato chips, put the hot dog in then slather it in baked beans.

At holidays I'd always pile a mountain of mashed potatoes on my plated and make a well, fill it with corn then slather the whole thing with enough gravy to make my chest hurt now.

My grandfather eats salt on all his melons and most of his fruit I think.

I learned from my mom to eat my scrambled eggs not only with ketchup but also with horseradish. So good.

My favorite way to eat fair fries was always with obscene amounts of salt and malt vinegar. I guess that's out of the question now. :( It never seemed weird to me but people out west look at me like I have two heads when I mention it.

My brother the freak always ate mustard on pretty much everything. As far as I know he still does. Not the good stuff either, plain old yellow mustard. I think when he has fries it's equal parts potato and mustard. I'd say I clearly got all the good genes but he's in perfect health. <_<

I miss malt vinegar too. Not only can't I have the vinegar, but I can't have the fish and chips I used to put it on - for two reasons. Of course I can't have the breading on the fish, but there is no good fish worth eating where I live now. And even if I COULD, they don't do malt vinegar here either.

Malt vinegar on french fries was da bomb. :( and I never even thought about that combo until just now! I had it in Ireland on my "chips". (I do not eat FF very often and use ketchup if I do)

waaaaaa!!!

And on clam cakes. There was a place a short distance from Newport RI that was just a little shack but had the best fried clams and clam cakes. Hadn't thought of those in years.

Does anyone other than me dip fries in Mayo? Someone turned me on to those when I lived down south.

I also never knew so many ate ketchup sandwiches, my twin used to eat those all the time. I thought it was gross but he would likely think my adding cinnamon to a tomato based beef stew was nuts.

I agree the kid who puts whipped cream on his hot dogs wins the 'weird things people eat' award though.

I use allspice in one of my beef stew recipes, so I "get it"! ;)

I get it, too. Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice with tomato-based sauces really work well and are not uncommon. Many, including myself, add some bittersweet chocolate to chile con carne. It really rounds out the flavour.

Pamelas pancake mix and Aunt Jemima instant pancake mix. Not gluten-free!

Hub ran out of instant pancake mix. Needed about 25% more mix. Added Pamela's and an egg white. Made fluffy, thick, yummy ( or Suomi was told) pancakes. They then put PB and fake maple syrup on them.

I haven't ever tried that although I absolutely love a steaming hot meatloaf slathered in mayo. Thanks mom! I really should try the fries dipped in it sometime. Fair trade coming out west though, I gave up my salt and vinegar fries for fry sauce. Since fry sauce is gluten free I'm thinking it was a good deal. :D

Dipping fries in mayo (aioli) is huge in Belgium. They wouldn't dream of using ketchup! They are delicious that way. I have never tried it on meatloaf but imagine it would be very good. Thanks for the idea!
