Foodies know all too well that weird combinations make for the best flavors. Combining ingredients that shouldn’t go together works in many instances. Although there are bound to be grimaces and spit-ups, weird food combinations interest the foodie community. Here are 12 strange combos to try at your next foodie meeting.
1. Pickles, Peanut Butter, Mayo Sandwich
Two slices of white bread, a clump of pickles, a slathering of thick, creamy peanut butter, and a slab of mayonnaise makes this fan-favorite. Pickle, peanut butter, and mayo sandwich consumers state the creation satisfies several cravings at once, and if you aren’t feeling up to adding mayo, stick to the simple peanut butter and pickles combo.
2. Peanut Butter Burger
Who doesn’t love a sizzling steak burger with fresh tomato, crisp lettuce, splashes of ketchup, mustard, and a dollop of silky peanut butter? Burger enthusiasts say adding bacon and jalapeno relish to this dish makes it the best-tasting burger in the game. Another person adds their professor’s first date with their spouse involved sharing a peanut butter burger.
3. Powdered Sugar Fries
Forget about the salt or the vinegar. Instead, grab a shaker of confectioners sugar to top off your oily potato strings. The commenter that suggests this combo shared how they found it: “I learned this accidentally at the beach when the wind flipped my funnel cake over into my bucket of French fries.”
4. Cheese Curds and Caramel
Cheese curds are among the best dairy products, but I never considered dipping them in caramel. Either dip the cold curdles into steamy caramel confection or cool off the warm cheese curds with a submerge into chilly caramel. Fried cheese curds and caramel also work.
5. Balsamic Vinegar and Ice Cream
Salt and Straw gained popularity for their strange ice cream flavors, such as blue cheese, olive oil, and strawberry balsamic. For this dessert, you can either drizzle the vinegar on the ice cream or heat it into a reduction for a glaze over the dairy treat.
6. Ketchup and Cottage Cheese
My dad’s favorite food is cottage cheese with anything in the fridge. He fancies peanut butter, yogurt, jelly, fruit, veggies, pudding, and ketchup on his cottage cheese. And he eats it all in one sitting. Ketchup and cottage cheese supporters claim adding salt and hot sauce to the blend makes for an award-winning meal.
7. Ranch Doritos and Imitation Krab
If you put two items with cult followings together, someone is bound to like it. A contributor believes that ranch Doritos dipped in imitation krab is the best amalgam for the tastebuds. The fishy taste rubs off on the potent Dorito seasoning, creating a unique and stellar flavor.
8. Strawberries and Sweet and Sour Sauce
Instead of lopping chicken nuggets in sweet and sour sauce, pick a healthier, fruitier option, and grab a handful of strawberries. The tangy sauce compliments the sweet fruit for an unnerving yet addicting flavor blend. If the strawberry borders bitter, the sweet and sour sauce makes it pop even more.
9. Cheddar Cheese and Apple Pie
Cheddar apple pie dates back to 17th century England when the citizens swapped out dairy sauces for coats of cheese. Pie aficionados favor baking the cheese into the crust or topping the warm, decadent pie with blocks of sharp cheddar. Cheddar’s pungent flavor balances out the saccharine pie taste.
10. Garlic Bread and Peanut Butter
According to foodies on this thread, peanut butter goes with everything. A novel ensemble calls for garlic bread dipped in creamy or crunchy peanut butter. Like most sweet and salty combos, this one merges two divine flavors, leaving foodies in awe of which unassuming foods go together.
11. Barbecue Sauce and Baked Potato
I used to eat barbecue sauce on everything. Sometimes the leftover sauce drizzled into my other foods, alerting me that many things taste excellent with the smokey sauce. Baked potatoes are the most flavorful. Dress your potato to your liking and sprinkle some BBQ, or dip your forkfuls into the garnet sauce.
12. Gingerbread with Blue Cheese
The next time you make a gingerbread house with your family, set out a side of blue cheese for the kids to dip the cookie into. The respondent who added this to the thread acknowledges the combo sounds vile but works. Leafy greens aren’t the only ingredient dressings work with.
