November 9th, 2010, 11:50 AM #1Weird Food Combinations
Julia and I were just having this discussion about weird food combinations. I'm a huge fan of puffy Cheetos and alfalfa sprouts, my husband enjoys crushing nacho Doritos and putting them in his PB&Js.
Julia enjoys those same Doritos, but dipped in sour cream. In our quest to find the perfect Thanksgiving side dish to bring to the company potluck, we're asking for your help. Got any weird concoctions for us?

Another weird one, my brother's friend likes, is peanut butter and chicken nuggets....

I like Ranch dressing on mashed potatoes (or baked potatoes). It's kind of like sour cream and chives, except it's something we always have in the fridge.

I had Blue Cheese Dressing on my baked potato last night!

MichaelColey I'm with you. Ranch is good on pretty much everything!

Oh gosh where to begin? LOL
In high school my friend and I used to eat toast spread with a combination of Renee's Caesar dressing (had to be Renees!) and salsa.
My husband decided a while ago that cool ranch doritos were invented for crunching up and adding to chili. This is the same guy who puts french fries or onion rings on his burger (ok maybe less weird than doritos in chili). After your post above CTank, about your hubby adding Doritos to PB&J, I'm thinking they are a popular "add to anything" condiment. LOL As hubby reminds me nachos with chili is not actually odd at all anyway.
I sometimes eat cottage cheese for breakfast w/ a side of olives... not weird to me at all but my mother says it's an odd combo.

How about the super hot Doritoes crushed up and used instead of breadcrumbs for frying fish fillets? Very tasty.

See? who knew Doritos had so many purposes. LOL Doritos should hold a contest/promo campaign for "best alternative use of Doritos" and consider all our entries. LOL

The Doritos over fish sounds like an awesome idea! Maybe we should send this link over to Frito Lay and have them run a Groupon in conjunction with your idea e-Gazer...
It'd definitely be one of the more out there, awesome suggestions we've had. The other- A Groupon Cruise!
Joy-that's my favorite (and only) part of Thanksgiving. I could eat bushels and bushels of that stuff.

Julie, I say go for it!
Oh! I just remembered another supposedly "weird" food that is actually really delicious and which we had served as part of our duo appetizer platter at our wedding last year. It was watermelon gazpacho (watermelon pureed with basil olive oil and not sure what else - so delicious) served with a (ready?) vanilla-bean marinated tiger shrimp. Believe it or not it goes perfectly together w/ the watermelon which is so refreshing and the perfect combination of sweet/savoury. Sounds odd, tastes delish. You vote, odd or not odd? I say try before you judge it...
I also remember a restaurant here in Toronto serving a peanut butter burger not that long ago. That's kind of odd. Or another Toronto caterer in Toronto that serves a "Peanut butter & Jelly Fish" (the recipe sounds amazing actually). And these days a lot of restaurants are experimenting with chocolate in hot meat dishes. Kinda odd, but done right, really good. Not that odd actually depending where you're from; Mexicans/Aztecs have been doing it for centuries (and I love the combination of chili and chocolate together myself).

I just made a peanut and tomato Moroccan soup a few weekends ago- it was spicy and savory (had peanut butter as the main ingredient). It was supposed to be a vegetarian dish, but my family doesn't stand for that very often- so my dad recommended adding shrimp to it. It was delicious!
