    I was making myself a salad for lunch and couldn't decide whether to use ranch dressing or vinaigrette dressing. So, I mixed the two and added a little bit of brown mustard to spice it up. I loved it!

    What foods have you experimented with and ended up pleased with the outcome?

    My personal favorite thing that's odd to make are grilled peanut butter, honey, and banana sandwiches. You make it just like a grilled cheese, and it always turns out amazing. Especially when some of the honey soaks through the bread and carmelizes. Mmmmm.

    I was eating a (chunky) peanut butter sandwich, and I saw salami in the fridge. I mixed the two together. It was absolutely delicious, but it gave me the runs lol. I would most definitely do it again.

    My favorite is Wendy's fries dipped in frosty... My high school girlfriend's favorite snack was doritos and cottage cheese.

    Isn't that what killed Elvis? He was rather fond of his fried PB & banana sammiches.

    Me, it's wasabi on pistachio ice cream.

    Well, I went balls to the wall with a project at culinary school. We were supposed to make a layered cake (I was in the pastry program) and decided to just go crazy. Everyone else made cakes with traditional flavors, bleh. Here's the layers:
    Lime chiffon cake
    Avocado mousse
    Chili chocolate ganache
    Mango compote
    Lime cilantro mousse
    Lime glaze
    Cinnamon scented tortilla chips

    It was weird, not incredibly good but it looked beautiful. Super bright green! One of many of the weirdest combos I've made.

    Frank's Buffalo Wing Sauce mixed with Ranch dressing. I put Tapatio in tartar sauce too. Epic for fries, shrimp, chicken, whatever.

    EVERYTHING!

    Ranch is great with EVERYTHING. Whenever we get crappy delivery pizza, it's always best paired with ranch.
    For fries, I'm always a fan of mayo-which goes well with everything as well. Couple restaurants in town pride themselves on flavored mayos with fries. Favorites are curried mayo and wasabi mayo with fries!
    (this thread is making me way too hungry now :D)

    Hm, i definitely didn't know that. I thought I created something new and delicious when I was 5. :p

    Donut burgers are also great, but it must have bacon. Let's see what other weird things do I love. Chocolate covered bacon, and fried mountain dew balls (They are kind of like scones, but have mountain dew in the batter.) are some of my favorites.

    I've been known to have the occasional spaghetti sandwich, when I'm carb loading.

    Those are definitely some big ones! While I've seen the donut burger several times, the fried mountain dew balls sound AWESOME. At minibar restaurant, they do nearly 25 courses, really wild stuff. One of their desserts was chocolate and bacon. Wife loved it. As I was eating vegetarian, they gave me chocolate covered corn nuts. Savory and sweet is my butter and bread. Was great.

    Not for me, but my son likes it. One morning he asked for peanut butter toast for breakfast. We were out of bread so on a whim I gave him an Eggo with peanut butter on it. A year later its still in the breakfast rotation.

    Sounds quite similar to what my brother and I ate while hiking in NY. Bagel, PB and M&Ms. It's a huge does of carbs, sugar and some protein. Great when you're burning a ton on the trail. I think made famous by some hikers in ME many years back.

    lol, honey + cooked banana is way too sweet for me. Mine is bread+peanut butter+banana+almond slices. Really good :) The almond gives it a nice crunch. Another variate is bread+peanut butter+apple+ cinnamon

    For me, it's McD unsalted friends + their soft serve ice-cream.

    HAHAHAHAHA

    oh boy, how does THAT taste?

    Do you have a picture of it? :D

    Pizza+ranch dipping is gggggGREAT! :D The local pizza place here offers a variety of dipping sauces to go with the pizza :)

    haha, oh boy. I like to eat a Sloppy Joe (spaghetti sauce with meatballs in a bun).

    +1 I've done that plenty of time :) PB&J Eggo!!!

    I'll have to try it with apple and cinnamon, that sounds delicious. I would love to try it with Almonds, they always were my favorite nut. But as a kid I snacked on them so much, I am now completely allergic to all tree nuts because of it. I can't even handle them with my hands or I will break out in hives, and have trouble breathing.

    OMG!!! You'd have to eat A LOT of almonds to develop THAT kind of allergies.
