Strange but Yummy Sarnies! (Sandwiches)

I often eat sandwiches that some find odd so I was wondering if anyone else puts strange combo's on sandwiches that actually taste good?

I like the following combos ...

Peanut butter and thinly sliced gouda

Salt and Vinegar or Tomato crisps on white bread with butter

Chunky cottage cheese with youngberry jam on rye

Ham and Apricot Jam

Thick slices off ripe tomato with sour cream, salt and pepper

Toasted bacon and banana

Duck liver pate with marmelade etc.

What odd combo do you suggest that taste good?

I discovered a new treat yesterday rushing to find something for myself to have with Dad for lunch (pureed ravioli wasn't appealing at the time ).

I had bought some wonderful cheese bread from our bakery and had some procuitto left over from DH's lunches for the week. I toasted two slices of the bread, slathered with margerine and added scrunched up procuitto slices. While it sounds like an unlikely combination, it was delicious!

I don't know Snip, some of those combos sound pretty darn good! The peanut butter and Gouda might be a bit out there and the duck liver pate with marmalade I probably couldn't get past the pate. Most of the others though would be delish!

Pureed ravioli doesn't sound like it would be appealing at any time

Maybe you and I are normal then and the people who find my combo's strange are the odd one The peanut butter and cheese combo does sound a bit weird I know but it tastes pretty darn good!

Thanks Jabbur :)

I had something for lunch that some may think a bit odd. I had some cucumber salad leftover from yesterday so I filled a pita pocket with that and sliced turkey. It was delicious and certainly didn't make me feel as full as a usual sandwich. I still had room for some fresh figs.

Sounds good to me :) I'll even put some mustard and sauerkraut on top of that
My brother ate 3/4 of the loaf of bread when we got home from school each day when I was growing up so I ate whatever I could find! Having strange toppings on my sandwiches also stopped him from asking for them

I'll try the PB and Mayo but raw onion? I think I'll pass on the raw onion
I have a thing about eating raw banana because my dad made me eat them and it made me sick so I can't face it even now. I eat them cooked and in combination with other ingredients :) Why don't you eat Duck if I may ask?
