We live in a free country, right?
And that means (among other things) that you can eat whatever you please, whenever you please.
And sometimes people like to get a little bit freaky-deaky.
AskReddit users talked about the weird food combinations they like to chow down on. Let’s take a look.
1. Sounds decent.
“Instant Ramen, cooked without flavor, but then you drain and fry it, adding the flavor during the pan-fry, then slap that b**ch in a quesadilla.
It’s crunchy, crispy, cheesy, noodley, and you can eat it like a taco.”
2. Wasn’t stoned.
“I put red wine vinegar in a lot of food, and people make such a face when I do it.
Like if I CHEF MIKE a bowl of leftover spaghetti, I’ll put like a tablespoon of vinegar over it pre-heating. I like it.
I got the habit from my dad. He put it on canned spinach, and I liked it. So it’s a little flavor enhancer on my meals for one.
I’d say the STUPIDEST food combo I did was when I tried to make a peanut butter and jelly burrito in the microwave.
(I was out of bread, and figured, why not, it’s good on bagels)
Do not microwave a peanut butter and jelly burrito, you will have a bad time.
Also I was six, not stoned.”
“Red wine and black licorice.
I say them in that order because if I start with ‘black licorice and…’
I am usually shunned before I can finish the statement.”
4. Thanks, Grandma.
“My grandma taught me to eat fried egg on toast with grape jelly.
Perfect combo of savory/sweet.”
5. You gotta do it the right way.
“Dipping my ham and cheese toastie into a mug of hot chocolate.
Heavenly, the trick is a very quick dip, the bread will absorb it either way and you want to avoid total sogginess at all costs.”
“Feta cheese on a regular hot dog.
I had no idea other people would even consider it gross, it’s delicious.”
“Make some spicy ramen noodles, but add the flavor pack in after you cook and drain the noodles.
Add a bit of peanut butter, a dash of lemon juice and sugar to taste.
Throw in some tofu. Gourmet ramen!”
8. Not for everyone.
“My favorite sub is tuna with pickles, black olives, and cheddar cheese, and I don’t think it’s weird at all.
But I’ve literally had the sandwich shop say “gross” after I ordered it so it’s definitely not everyone’s cup of tea haha.”
9. Just walk away.
“My husband has some interesting combinations but his favorite is ramen cup of noodles with popcorn.
He will eat all the noodles and then dump popcorn into the broth. It gets all shriveled and that’s how he likes it.
I have to walk away.”
“I used to get peperoni with tuna salad and cheddar w/ banana peppers.
One time the woman asked me if I was pregnant.”
“Peanut butter, honey, pickle and goldfish cracker sandwich.
It was something random my son asked for once when he was like 3 and I’ve been eating them ever since.
You can also use Doritos instead of goldfish crackers.”
12. Getting funny looks.
“Strawberry jam and cheese on a sandwich.
I really don’t think it’s that weird but people look at me funny when I say I like it.”
13. Give it a shot.
“Slow-cooked pinto (or black) beans, hot, with some of the liquid, poured over vanilla ice cream. The liquid acts as a sauce, and cuts the sweetness while satisfying like a chocolate sauce might. The beans start hot and soft on cold, firm ice cream.
Slowly the ice cream softens, and the beans freeze, so it offers contrast of texture different in the first bite than it does in the last. There’s a lot going on, but if you try it with beans from a can, you’re wasting your time on disappointment.”
“BBQ sauce on mashed potatoes.
I don’t do it every time but whenever I have like BBQ chicken with mashed potatoes, I’ll dip them in the sauce.”
Are there any weird food combinations that you like?
