Question Strange food combos

Hi all, the thread that is running right now about foods that you "wouldn't put in your mouth" inspired me to ask this question...

What are some "strange" food combinations that you love to eat together, but which raise a lot of eye brows if you tell them to your nearest and dearest?

Let's see, peanut butter with mayo, potato chips and deep dark chocolate, figs with soft buttery brie, my daughter loves a smooshed white bread, potato chip, mayo sammie... I shiver at okra, but love the pickled kind rolled in flattened white bread with flavored cream cheese and then cut into little slices..home fries with a little garlic and eggs on top, Pasties with all veggies, forget the meat and a side of lima beans and ham Left over beans rolled in a slice of bread...Hot dog and a flour tortilla and a smear of woody's bbq sauce, potaot chips with hot peppers. That's about all I can think of right now..Can't wait to see what the rest of you enjoy in private, I might add it to our list

Deli ham and peanut butter sandwich - tx to Mom, who used to eat this when I was a kid, and I thought it gross then, but love it now!

Oh - and forgot to add hubby loves cottage cheese with soy sauce and those little nori sprinkles!!!

CJ, fig & brie and pasties with vegs are delicious!! I love them too and I don't think they are strange at all!!

Well when I was little I realise I used to love some horrid things that now looking back I shiver with horror at the memory... some of my faves were spaghetti soaked in ketchup, and omelette with maionnaise. Yes I actually loved those things, egad!!

These days I have found a couple of seemingly strange combinations which worked out really well, which are guacamole on falafels, and sliced mortadella with kiwi.
Also we always eat ice cream heaped with whipped cream, which is concidered kinda weird outside Rome but here, it is very popular...

Sooo Jessica, what is your "closet menu"???

Truth be told I can't think of anything to amazingly strange off the top of my head. I've been a ketchup addict for life, and put it on everything from pizza (as a dipping sauce) to cauliflower. When I was little my mom made us sandwiches with processed cheese slices and jam (usually a berry flavour), which I still make every now and then for old time sake. I love to eat (this is a super rare event these days, lol) bread the has been drentched in gravey....hmmmm what else?

I will have to keep pondering this, surely I must have some weird food combos too.

Tart apples dipped in fish sauce. It's actually quite delicious.
