peanut butter and bacon...YUM

I love balsamic reduction on fruit, ices cream...but that isn't as odd as it used to be...

As I read through some of these, i can see how they would be appealing. A lot of them are just combinations that create a flavor profile, that can be likened to more common combinations.

As for the first post, regarding grape jelly and sausage, when ever I am making bbq'ed meatballs of something, I always use grape jelly to finish. learned it off an old Chef buddy/mentor, and it is awesome!

Also, finishing cocktail sauce with Johny Walker, best cocktail sauce ever!

PeppA, my other half, likes to make a really dry tuna noodle casserole, and insists on topping it with chopped raw onions and crumbled sour cream 'n chive potato chips.

I just found out a couple of days ago that my Sous Chef likes to put ranch dressing on spaghetti.

the only really weird one i've seen was from a buddy from ireland. we picked up chinese take-out one night, when he lived here in the states, and on the way home he said he had to stop to get white bread. i didn't understand why we had to go get it while our food was getting cold, but then he asked me "don't you put your chinese food on bread?"

he loved curried chicken on wonder white bread.

I can't think of any odd combos because if I do them, they seem 'normal'. :) I mix cottage cheese and yogurt together and eat it. I also mix syrup and peanut butter together for a sandwich spread.

My Mama used to eat a Bacon sandwich. She would use 2 slices of white sandwich bread, on one she would put yellow mustard, on the other she would put grape jelly and then put bacon on it. It was original, I'll have to give her that!

If I have applesauce and ham at the same time, I love to dip a bite of ham into the applesauce and eat it.

Then, on the not so weird side, I mix stuff into my mashed potatoes (corn, peas, okra, etc).

And who doesn't love to dip cookies into a glass of milk and let it get moist and super soft? I take it a bit far sometimes though. I've put milk in a bowl, and let some cookies soak in the bowl for an hour or more, then eat them with a spoon and drink the milk. Absolutely amazing. It really enhances the flavor too.
