Title: Strange food combinations you really like?
Post by: Desert Fox on August 30, 2017, 01:10:34 AM
I am curious what kind of food combinations you really like that everybody else around you consider disgusting?

For example, I put mayonnaise and onions on hot dogs.

When I was younger, for gatherings, etc, my mother made a dipping sauce for cocktail franks. She would have it heated in this small pot on a sterno or something. I loved it, it was tangy sweet and also savory.

The recipe: Equal parts ketchup and grape jelly.  :-[

I was raised in the '70s but my upbringing was very '50s in some ways. ^ That recipe is so totally from some 1950s  magazine or cookbook.

Oh, how about a plate with a squiggly line of horseradish sauce (the mayo-like stuff), and a line of spicy mustard...on top of those lines goes Chicken Sausages cooked in beer and covered in hot (put in with the sausages at the end just to heat it up) Lemon and Dill Sauerkraut (homemade).  There's so many LOUD flavors on this plate it'll knock your dick in the dirt.

There's a hot sauce for everything. 

Edit: Probably the weirdest is oatmeal with lemon juice and Frank's Red Hot.  Use whole oats and overcook it so the texture's less 'oatmeal' and more 'cereal sponge.'  I swear, I could cube these things and stick them on tooth picks. 

Edit:
I put peanut butter in ramen. Not so weird though when you think that it just creates a peanut sauce.

Weirdest ramen combination I've tried is: [Chicken Ramen] + [Fried Egg] + [Maple Syrup, the real kind].  It was good!

I cut it into cubes maybe half an inch on a side. I put it in a cast-iron skillet, usually with chopped onion, but that's optional, and some water, and add spices. Examples are chopped garlic, ground black pepper, hot curry powder, paprika, celery seed. I used to add soy sauce or Bragg liquid aminos, but those have too much salt for my present diet. Instead I add some potassium chloride (No-Salt) as a salt substitute. Maybe some sherry (I use Amontillado sherry for cooking). Maybe a little maple syrup. I'm still learning how to substitute for soy sauce, so I'm planning on trying a wee bit of blackstrap molasses, since that seems to work well for a fish marinade. I add some olive oil, which will help reduce sticking later when the water is gone.

I turn the heat on high and stir from time to time. As you've observed, if you don't stir it will all stick together. When the water is nearly gone I reduce the heat to medium and at this point I begin to stir it continuously, constantly scraping the bottom of the skillet with a spatula. I like using the cast-iron skillet because I can use a stainless steel spatula and really scrape the bottom. It's done when the tofu is golden brown. It will be a mix of the original cubes and some crumbly bits from all that stirring and scraping.

Sometimes I cut up a previously-baked potato, and add it in at the point where the water is gone and the continuous stirring starts. Alternatively, sometimes I'll serve the tofu with brown rice. (Cooked separately.) The combination of tofu and brown rice is a complete protein.

I've never attempted to cook curried vegetables from scratch, but sometimes I get those foil packets of curry and dump that on the cooked tofu.

My grandmother would combine bacon fat with red wine vinegar and pour it over salad greens and onions (and the bacon of course).  The pan sizzled as she drenched the greens in hot fat.  She called it "wilted lettuce"...no idea if that was some local name she grew up with or what.  There might be a reason my family has a history of heart problems /shrug.

Grape Jelly and Heinz Chili sauce meatballs

I'm sure this came out of some old Betty Crocker book in the 1950s but my family has been making them since I was a kid and I love them. I make them more often during the holidays.

The cheaper version you use frozen meatballs but Mom would make fresh ones and use crushed corn flakes rather than breadcrumbs in the balls.

^^ Yep must have been some 1950s-60s  Good Housekeeping cookbook or something.
They LOVED having recipes where you just mixed things from jars. (probably where that awful green bean and cream of mushroom soup casserole came from)

The variation we had was grape jelly & ketchup as a sauce for cocktail weenies.
it was kept warm in something like a fondue pot or something.

Americans have some weird ideas about food.

True, this one shocks many Americans when they find out the ingredients. They taste better than they should.  The ingredients make sense when you break down what is in both products. BTW Heinz Chili sauce is not a "hot sauce" its closer to ketchup with extra onion and seasonings. I honestly don't know what people use it for except this dish.

I looked around and found a fruit chutney from your country that probably has a similar flavor profile with tomato and fruit.  http://www.aussieproducts.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DDRC25

Rosella Fruit Chutney, 250g. Jar.

Most countries and localities have some weird ideas about food when looked at from the outside.  American food used to be rather boring and staid by comparison to most nations; meat, potatoes and a veg cooked into paste.

The jelly/chilli sauce meatballs sounds disgusting at first but when you think about it, its just a sweet and savory sauce with meat, which a very common combination.   That being said, the prepared food makers of the US have always published recipes to encourage folks to use their products but that really exploded in the 50s.  This probably came out of a heinz cook book from the 50s.

Side note, greenbean casserole rather unsurprisingly came from cambells soup, the women that created it recently died. Dorcas Reilly, Dorcas, a name that likely died out about the time she invented that iconic casserole.

American food is anything but boring.

As a country of immigrants our food reflects a wide variety of cultures with numerous cuisines that are uniquely American. These include Cajun, Tex/Mex, New Mexican, and the variations of Italian, Chinese, Thai and Japanese  cuisines that evolved  from the cuisines of those countries.

In Australia, Easter hot cross buns start to be sold in the supermarkets the day after Christmas (there was actually a sighting of them back in November last year, which was a record).  I love them for the fruit and cinnamon.  There’s also an Australian yeast-based spread, Vegemite, which looks like sump oil (and possibly tastes like it too - I personally prefer Marmite which is less salty but sweeter).

I like hot cross buns, microwaved, with Marmite or Vegemite (no butter though).

You don't take a spoonful and try eating it like that. Even we would gag on that. It's nice in very small doses on the right accompaniment.

You put the thinnest layer you possibly can onto a buttered piece of bread, toast or crumpet and eat it like that.

We give it to 6 month old babies. Who absolutely love it.

So am I, even if the stuff we get in Australia is made in New Zealand.  It’s slightly sweeter and saltier than Vegemite, which is a poor substitute when Marmite isn’t available.  I did a 7 week cruise (never again) from Fremantle to Rome in 2015, stopping off Gallipoli for the 100th anniversary of the invasion.  The ship ran out of Vegemite 2 days before the end of the cruise, and a lot of passengers were very unhappy (but not as unhappy as the passengers on a cruise to the Antarctic when the ship ran out of beer 2 days before the end).

I was sailing with the USS Midway battlegroup back in 1981. When we departed the Persian Gulf we made a stop in Oz on the way back to Yokosuka, Japan. A certain song was popular then so the supply guys got a load of Vegemite, expecting a demand for it. The little packets soon became a running joke as people found out how much of an acquired taste it was.

1 can flaked white no-drain (or pressed dry)
1 tsp sweet relish
1 tsp sharp mustard (not sweet, horseradish infusions are fine)
¼ cup shredded cheddar (sharper is better)
2 tbsp mayonnaise

Mix thoroughly. Put on bread. If you're feeling excitable put a slice of cheese on top, open face, and broil briefly. Eat.

I gave up canned fish a long time ago when I discovered sushi in the early 90s, Tuna tasted disgusting out of a can from that point forward, the thought repulses me now.   I have never liked sardines or similar. Anchovies are good as a flavor element but I cant eat them strait out of the can. I'll do canned clams in a few dishes.
