    This chili thread comment (bacon wrapped banana’s) got me thinking about what food combo’s you’ve come across that don’t initially make sense but you were impressed with.

    A few I’ve been exposed to that stood out:

    Hershey’s syrup on canned tunafish & crackers (from a weight lifting friend who was eating 4+ cand a day)

    Tuna sushi roll with banana (with & w/o a hotsauce). Added a nice sweet flavor similar to lobster & mango roll.

    Let me hear your unusual combo’s...

    What, you never tried this? I like to make sushi rolls with canned tuna inside and a hersheys drizzle on top.

    I'm alarmed too, so I'm calling the police! :eek::confused::D

    I like potato chips (American, I guess otherside of the ocean they're crisps?) and peanut butter.

    Hawaiian pizza forever!!! (ham and pineapple)

    I would expect that to taste quite good. Don't they already have a pork flavor option? Making it chewy would be a welcome addition.

    Rock melon (cantaloupe) wit Tajín seasoning. Works surprisingly well.

    That sounds awful, I agree. I just found this video:



    I think I'll give this a try tonight. Otherwise, I'll never know… ;)

    You are worse than a dane!

    Well, when you are at it, try the banana bacon combo ;)

    Cut the banana in pieces as wide as the bacon. Use only extremely thin bacon and wrap the banana so that the ends connect and a bit more. Fry it on a sizzling hot pan until the bacon is crisp all the way around. Enjoy.

    It took a lot of convincing before I tried it. Luckily it was my wife to be who introduced me to it... and so I could not resist.

    Indeed! :)
    Tried it years ago. Will I do my reputation grave damage if I admit to having quite liked it? ;)

    Actually, the bacon/banana combo isn't all that outlandish. People eat fried bacon with maple sirup, too. Not that much different…

    Whatever you do, do not, I repeat, do not attempt to cook grated horseradish on a pan with fresh pressed orange juice....

    I was out of vinegar and thought to experiment.

    It has the consistency and taste of puke while being odorless. the perfect poison!

    This is it:

    Not as bad as I thought it might be. It turns out more citrus dominated than sweet (although there is a fair bit of sweetness). People who like sweet and sour chicken will probably like this, too.

    Personally, I don't think I'll make it again. It's nice enough, but the flavours are a bit too linear and simple for my taste.

    One of my hunting friends eats pancakes with yellow mustard.

    He says it taste like the crust of a corn dog. I call BS, but I’ve seen him with my own eyes. The waitress always freaks out on him.

    Sometimes when I make a pot of chili, I sneak in 100 grams of dark chocolate. People always wonder why it tastes so good.

    I use Italian mayonnaise as a condiment when eating fried pork chops.

    You know those tubs of Philadelphia Cream Cheese? The original one with no flavour? Sometimes I open one, take a spoon and eat it empty. Just as it is.

    Favorite midnight snack: leftover macaroni and cheese fried in ketchup and nature's seasons. Got to eat it while it's hot enough that inhaling the ketchup fumes takes your breath away.

    When I get a super-bad case of the munchies, the only thing that will satisfy it is a sandwich made of two slices of white bread and a really fat spread of peanut butter heavily covered with white sugar. Yep, a peanut butter and sugar sandwich. Sometimes, I eat five of them in a row if the munchies hit mega hard.

    I put green chile on everything I eat. Literally everything. (Any other New Mexicans here know what I'm talkin' about!)
