Poll: What's your favorite ODD food?

Hi Everyone:

I thought a poll might add some cheer to the threads area, everyone always likes to share. Anyway, I was thinking this morning about how I adore under-ripe bananas. A little green around the edges is just great, but once they get a brown spot I am saddened and don't enjoy them nearly as much.

What's your favorite odd food?

My boyfriend's favorite is an applesauce sandwich with grated parmesan. I thought it was worth noting. Mine is anything to do with peanut butter.

I love slightly green bananas too! Wow, I thought I was the only one! I also love beets, just love them. Mmm.

And that norwegian goat cheese - jetost? I don't remember how it's spelled. That is so good on wasa crackers.

And eggplant, anything eggplant for me too!

odd food

My favorite snack is definitely odd. My friends would say "eeewww" when I ate it until I got some of them to try it. Now a lot of my friends eat it. My odd snack is a peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwich. It really is good. My mom got me started on it when I was little. I said "eeewww" to her that first time, too.

Well, one of my favorite foods isn't odd to me because of myChinese heritage, but I've seen Fear Factor use them in their food challenges because it's more of an ethnic food.

I like "thousand year old eggs"--which are regular duck eggs that have been preserved in a special chemical process. It makes the whites turn a glossy dark brown/black and the yolk turn a dark green. It has a rich flavor which I cannot discribe.

I like eating the eggs sliced and sprinkled with a sauce of soy sauce, vinegar & sesame oil (sometimes with garlic chili sauce or green onions on top). I will usually it it with bowl of rice "congee" (boiled rice porridge) and a type of canned food called "fried gluten and peanuts" (basically it's little balls of wheat gluten fried up, with boiled peanuts and in oil), and another canned fish called "Fried Dace with black beans".

No, it is not particularly healthy food, but It makes me think of my family, so I like having this every so often in the winter time--kind of a quick weekend lunch or a late night snack and sort of a "comfort food" to me...

My favourite odd snack is something I don't really indulge in now since I don't really eat chips anymore but I used to ADORE eating plain chips (ridged or regular) with cottage cheese.

It was salty because of the chips but kinda creamy because of the cottage cheese....Oh man, it was good.

The comment about the peanut butter and mayonaise sandwich brought back childhood memories. I don't eat them now, but as a kid we also put dill pickles on them! I could still eat them as an adult, but don't.

I like really ripe bananas. Yes, brown spots and all. Not black but as long as they're firm, I'll eat them.

White bread, grape jelly and american cheese sammichs
Fresh red raspberry from our bushes with a fresh green pea from our garden sutffed inside

And fried spaghetti. LEftover spaghetti (must have been refrigerated overnight, wiht the sauce and pasta together), in a skillet...turn the heta up and crack an egg over it, and stir stir stir till the egg is cooked (like fried rice kind)

Oh and spaghetti sandwhiches. Leftover spaghetti, inside white bread, and toasted in my sammich maker machine.

Fun topic! I loved to eat elbow macaroni with canned tuna and a dollop of ketchup all mixed together. It sounds gross, and I don't know how (or why) my mother came up with this recipe, but my siblings and I totally think of it as comfort food. I haven't eaten it in years (probably for the best), but I still think of it fondly.

I'm also a green banana lover. Can't STAND bananas with brown spots on them!

It's funny because my roommate and I were just talking about this the other day. I was telling her how as a kid I would put a peppermint stick down the middle of a sour pickle. She says I can now never say anything else about what she eats. Another one that I don't eat anymore is plain Lays potato chips with Texas Pete. I would just dump Texas Pete into the bag and shake it up. Loved it!!

I love hot pretzels, however, I don't like them with yellow mustard, and much prefer them with ketchup.... (almost impossible to find at most hot pretzel places!)... Don't know why, but I think it's because I prefere honey or dijon mustard to yellow mustard.

How about French fries dipped in mayo and ketchup--or dipped in Mayo & Salsa.... or grilled cheese sandwich dipped in mayo & salsa (and NO, obviously, this is NOT a diet food!)

Although I dont eat them anymore...a subway sandwhich with a layer mayo, layer lettuce, layer mayo, layer lettuce. Repeat twice more, and that is my favorite sandwhich!

Peanut Butter!!

I am the queen of eating Odd food. I eat Peanut butter on everything.

slice of Apple, peanutbutter and pepperjack soy cheese.

I also used to make this tofu french toast which is basically just pan fried (just the spray stuff on the pan) Tofu strips that have been dipped in a soy milk, eggwhite splenda and cinnamon sauce. Beause its tofu, it doesnt really absorb as well so I pretty much end up adding the cinnamon and spenda to the top later on.

How about Non fat plain yogurt with cocoa powder and splenda

or small peices of unsweetened bakers chocolate with peanut butter and apple

I'm sorry, some of these aren't odd at all!

I like peanut butter on pancakes, although I no longer eat them this way. I've met quite a few people who do, though, so maybe that's not odd either.

Dill pickle and cheese sandwiches with mayo.

Oranges rolled around until they're soft and bruisy (juice released), then punctured and the juice sucked out through a soft peppermint stick.

My kids eat Top Ramen plain out of the package--that's right, crunchy--sprinkled with the seasoning packet. Not if I know about it. But they do love it, and I know they have eaten it a few times behind my back...

My favorite cornbread is an unusual combination but very good. Must be cooked in a Dutch oven. It involves caramelilzing onion slices in a little olive oil, sprinkling them with brown sugar, then pouring the cornbread batter over the top. While it cooks, I also cook four chopped nectarines with two or three T white sugar and a sprig of fresh basil--right in the oven with the cornbread--so that the juice thickens into a jam. Take out the basil sprig and chop in some more fresh basil right before serving the nectarine jam with the cornbread. The combination of basil, nectarine, and smoky-sweet onion is incredible.

I once got into an interesting discussion when a member of a children's-writers group I belonged to asked us all what we ate on our French fries (her characters were eating together in a fast-food place and she needed this info for their dialogue). Chocolate shake was a common one. Ketchup was common everywhere in the States except certain areas of the West (Utah, Idaho, parts of Wyoming and Colorado and Montana) where we eat more "fry sauce" (a blend of ketchup and mayo, often with a touch of mustard or horseradish). Outside the fry sauce belt, this combination is held in great disgust. I know I have been frustrated at fast-food restaurants in Oklahoma and Missouri and Kansas when no fry sauce was available, and I had to ask for ketchup and mayo and mix my own. East Coasters will use ketchup but were more likely to salt-and-vinegar their fries. The weirdest, though--and unlike fry sauce, this one seemed to win converts whenever it was given a chance--was "poutine." The Canadians will recognize this: Fries topped with cheese curd and smothered in gravy! I'm sorry--I'm an American and we have a reputation for eating some of the fattiest and most disgusting foods on earth, but this dish makes my arteries recoil in horror! LOL! And yet...everyone who had dared to try it loved it...

-i get strange looks from coworkers when snacking on a plain green or red bell pepper. i'm not sure why this is odd though. i guess most people cut them into strips or something.
-i also LOVE bananas with pretzels. i push pretzel sticks down into the banana. the mushy-sweet + crunchy-salty combination is amazing!
-i really enjoy Mrs. Grass' chicken soup cold. i don't know why. i cook it and then refrigerate it & when i'm ready to eat it i just nuke it for about 30 seconds. delicious.
p.s. once i saw my great-uncle put parmesan cheese on an ice cream cone. i'll never forget.

Some personal childhood favorites and some more recent

As a kid - I luvd dry ramen noodles - ate them like crazy. I also liked having a paper cup (2 oz size) with dry mintue rice and a lot of soy sauce - don't know what those did to my insides as they swelled up ....

My Mom taught me to eat miracle whip, chedder cheese, and sliced sweet pickle sandwiches - something from her grandfather. I still eat these once in awhile.

In my teens, I really liked candian bacon wrappped around a hunk of cheese with ketchup on top and then nuked until the ketchup started to burn.

In Mississippi and Lousianna area the oddest combo I heard was when I was asked if I wanted French Dressing with my pizza. When I finally tried it, I didn't like it.

I still eat ketchup on my mac & cheese - I can't stand that dish without it.

I guess odd is to the beholder.

Noodles with cottage cheese baked with beaten eggs is called a Kugel. Very classic E. European Jewish cuisine, but I always find it bland. As a kid I loved fried salami with ketchup on raisin bread. Around here (IA) sandwiches on raisin bread are making a comeback. My husband's odd one was rice-a-roni sandwiches. PB and hot sauce or salsa is the VERY BEST.

Popcorn with tapatio on it.
Pretty much anything pickled. I have often wonder what makes me crave vinegar.
My mom drank gallons of vinegar and whole cucumbers when she was pregant with my brother.

My husband likes chocolate milk and raisin bran.....I guess it a military (Marine) thing. He said they used to run out of regular milk so the guys got used to raisin bran with chocolate milk.

favorite weird food

I found my newest absolutely favorite weird food by reading my favorite novelist, Haruki Murakami. In one of his novels, one of his characters makes a sardine sandwich. I decided to try it. I bought a can of smoked sardines from Trader Joe's. They are from Portugal. YUMMY!!! I made a delicious sandwich on toasted rye with red onion, tomato, and arugula dressed with a wine vinegar and olive oil vinaigrette and sprinkled it with pepper. I think I used mayo on one piece of bread and a garlicky mustard on the other slice. DOUBLE YUMMY!! Now I eat these little smoked fishies along with a salad for lunch...or just when I am in a hurry, all by themselves, right out of the tin. Only 240 calories for 4 of 'em packed in olive oil.

Odd but healthy

I eat alot of odd combinations - really like cooked chopped broccoli with diced sweet pickles and a couple crackers sprinkled on top - low cal but tasty. Before dieting I use to put a little dressing in also - Great Thread.

The only thing that I can think of along these lines is that when I was younger (Junior High and HS) I would make bologna sandwiches-either cold or fried bologna-with mayo and lay a thick stack of Ruffles on top of the bologna.. I liked the mushiness of the sandwich and the crunch of the chips.. But the good thing was that my mom was always on WW, so my bread, mayo, and bologna were diet!! lol

Probably not wierd, but deffinately unhealthy.

When I was in high school and college I used to crumble up fritos on all my sandwiches. I don't know what my deal was. Either the sandwich needed more salt, or maybe I just liked crunchy.
I have a friend that does the pb and mayo thing. I can't bring myself to try it, everytime i hear the combo my tummy goes to turning. :b

Odd food...

When I was a kid, I would sit on the kitchen counter, and sprinkle salt on lettuce leaves, and eat it like that - no idea what possessed me to eat that combination, but it's good!

My mom eats onions like apples.

I make goolaush every morning- yogurt w/ splenda, some cut up fruit, vanilla, dry oatmeal and flax seed. It might sound normal to you other dieters but my family is terrified of it.

I'm from the SE coast and we roast our own oyters all the time! Yummy!

My greatgrammy would "melt" graham crakers in milk and make a porridge.

And for french fries- i dip them in mustard.

As far as the peanutbutter mayo sandwich goes, I like to add sliced apple and banana to mine as well.

I love baby food. Not the meals, but the fruits and desserts (it's not really odd, just good and healthy, but it sounds odd to some perhaps).

I like a lot of things just with crackers, Like crackers crumbled in orange juice and eaten with a spoon. an apple or rice cake or popcorn alternating with bites of an apple (or a banana). Also plain crackers with plain lettuce on top.

cold soup out of the can with crumbled crackers in it.

I've read most of the previous posts and haven't seen this one.
How about pickles soaked in Kool-Aid? Sounds awful but is strangely good!

liverwurst. By itself, on crackers, in a sandwich... YUM

liver and onions (not so weird, but I'm the only person I know who likes it)

My brother is the KING of odd food. He puts Kipper snacks (canned fish) into ramen noodles. sometimes he adds spiced mozzarella cheese or peanut butter. Once he pickled hardboiled eggs just to see if he could, and he ate them over the course of a few months.

This is a great thread!

I used to eat "Mexican Hats". Take a piece of bologna, warm it up, put some warm instant mashed potatoes on it and then top it with melted american cheese. I loved that!

I love this thread too! Brings me back to when I was a kid...

Some of my favorites: peanut butter and coconut flakes on a rice cake with a touch of honey sometimes too...MmmmMmmm, french toast stuffed with cream cheese topped with syrup, cheerios with orange juice instead of milk, sticky white rice in vanilla rice milk with a touch of cinnamon and sugar (possibly not that odd), we also used to eat baked potatoes with ground turkey and ranch dressing for dinner... that's all I can think of for now!!

Now a days I jsut put hot sauce on EVERYTHING... yum!
