    Odd food combinations that you love

    I don't have any really odd ones, but I was brought up with cheese-and-tomato-ketchup sandwiches, and therefore this is completely normal to me, yet people always comment how odd it seems to them, which I cant comprehend as to me it's the only way to have a cheese sandwich!

    Do you have any foody quirks?

    People think I'm odd for having corned beef on pizza.

    Nothing much now but as a young un I used to have pizza sandwiches and also cornish pasty sandwiches.

    At school I used to have cheesy wotsits in yoghurt

    Bump an old thread and someone will comment, repeat an old thread and the same applies. You are damned if you do, damned if you don't! It's a good topic though.

    I prefer all breakfast cereals to be covered in fruit juice, joint favourite being apple or orange. Nothing against milk, just think cereals taste so much better without it.

    I use almond milk for health reasons, but the thought of water / fruit juice seems very odd! But that's the point of this thread - be as weird as you like!

    Peanut Butter, Banana and Silverskin pickled onion sandwiches.

    I discoverd this combination as a teenager. I actually haven't had one in while, but might just have to buy some pickled onions now.

    Corned beef, cheese & brown sauce sandwiches, bloody lovely.

    Big fan of the cheddar, pickled onion and salad cream sandwich with additional walkers crisps if i'm feeling gregarious. Roast chicken and ketchup gets an honourable mention too.

    Might sound odd but banana and bacon is a great combo. I do banana pancakes (mix eggs with ripe banana) and bacon as a typical weekend brekkie.

    I also know that southerners don't have gravy on their chips.

    Oh, I just remembered another from my childhood - using celery sticks like a spoon to spoon out peanut butter from the jar, and eat! The celery makes it a salad, so it's healthy ;-p

    Slice of Christmas pudding, fried in a pan in butter and then drizzled with Stroh overproof rum. Serve with crumbled extra mature (you know, the kind that's actual crystalline and crunchy). My dad always used to make this at Christmas and I still do. Everyone thinks it's bonkers until they try a forkful.

    You do have to pull your arteries through with a fir tree afterwards though....

    A friend of mine moved from his home town of St Petersburg to Manchester and fell in love with chips and gravy. I will never forget the first time we took him to a chippy in London (after a skinful) and his horror that this option did not feature anywhere on the menu - he actually had an argument with the poor chap behind the counter.

    Bumping this after a long time, as I have just had marmite, strong cheese spread and fried egg on toast.

    What a combo!

    Grilled banana and peanut butter on toast
    Risotto, mushroom/ham/whatever but a layer of grated cheese on top browned under the grill.

    Yesterday I tried roast beef with all the trimmings and…



    Mango chutney.
    I put it on my plate by mistake but it worked.
    I would try it again.

    Now this is odd, water on bran flakes would be about as good as eating wet cardboard

    That sounds rather good. Equally it might help to explain the average lower life expectancy your side of the border.

    My wife always offers me Christmas Cake....

    with a slice of cheese (Eg chedder)

    Its a Yorkshire thing apparently.

    I never accept. Christmas lunch, then some Christmas cake (flaming brandy obvs) , then maybe some cheese later on with a pint.
    But not all on the same fork!

    What Chinese curry sauce? I can’t get one that compares to the powdered mix the local chip shop uses.

    Home Bargains do some in various 'heat' ratings chinese curry powder.

    I just also remembered a sandwich I used to make:
    Brown seeded bread, chopped onion, cheeese-cream or spread, mayo, peanut butter-crunchy. In fact if my dinner wasn't due in an hour or so I'd have one now, yum yum.
