Because we need to know.

Now I'm going to suggest that you try most of the things suggested here,
However if you suggest something like grapes with catsup then don't expect too much.

I say that a potato has two things that compliment it best,
the first is salt and the second is butter.

So I like putting a little bit of butter on french fries,
it really make them taste more like a potato.

Not only that, he would sell it to the students.

The only way Wendy's french fries are palatable is dipped into a Frosty. My girlfriend looks at me funny every time, but salty + chocolate is a long-established culinary tradition and I refuse to waver from it.

And she puts ranch dressing on Waffle House hash browns topped with chili and so on. It looks like a plate of food that had been swallowed already, but had not yet completed its gastrointestinal course. So I think we're even.

As I stated french fries are delectable with butter but I will try it with a frosty next time I go.

Also I kinda veiw the alphaghetti on toast the same way I view Dominos pasta with bread bowls.

My current roommate might be a slob, but I am unable to deny one very strange food combination that he introduced me to. Take a nongreasy chain-store pizza (we used Papa John's, as an example), and dip it in applesauce. It's oddly complimentary.

Haven't tried applesauce myself, but I do like lemon juice on pizza, especially with crushed red pepper and a little parmesan. Cholula also goes well, especially when you combine the normally vile butter sauce that Papa John's comes with.

Damn, I want a pizza now.

This recipe is actually reasonably well-known in certain circles/ethnic backgrounds, but meatballs made with grape jelly in the sauce are pretty tasty.

Also as far as fries go, the curry mustard sauce I get at Buns is amazing.

I'm pretty sure there are some other things I've had that would be perfect for this thread that aren't coming to mind right now. Maybe I'll think of them later.

(Oh, and of course cinnamon and spicy pepper in chocolate *used* to be in this category, but it's been increasingly popularized as of late - or rather rediscovered, since older central-american cultures were all over that shit.)

True. I think the Red Fire is my favorite. But for this conversation, bacon chocolate is always controversial. Some people go "oh, yeah, that'd be good" and others wretch. I like the sweet and savory. I say it's kind of like a Mr. Goodbar, but smokey.

Sour Cream.

Hershey's Special Dark Syrup.

Part of me said 'that's crazy, don't even go there' but the other part said 'you know you want to, come on, taste the rainbow' or something to that effect. I mixed up a tiny portion on a plate, and gave it a taste. It was... pretty damn good! A little sweet, a little sour, but not overpowering. I put some on a chocolate chip cookie, and it was awesome.

Of course, now that I've had time to google it, it appears sour cream frosting is a very common recipe. But still! I want to find more things to put this wonder goo on.

Also, on a less traditional note, I am from Texas, the land of BBQ. I add a little BBQ sauce to my tuna salad, which gives it a tang. My husband, a Canadian, swears by this creation: Tuna, Dukes Mayo, finely diced onion and a little Sweet Baby Rays!

The M&M's melt a little inside, and the candy shell coloring bleeds into the surrounding bread. Yum! :p

The only way Wendy's french fries are palatable is dipped into a Frosty. My girlfriend looks at me funny every time, but salty + chocolate is a long-established culinary tradition and I refuse to waver from it.I've heard their nuggets also work well.

Less weird but still unusual, chicken nuggets (or some form of fried breaded boneless chicken) dipped in nacho cheese. That is, the kind that isn't really cheese. Only two places I've been able to get both at once...Wait, so you don't eat eggs anymore because some vegetarians grossed you out? That's not even true, eggs aren't even embryos, they're... eggs. Unfertilized eggs.

The more correct attack on palatability I've heard is comparing eggs to (don't highlight if you wish to retain appetite, unpalatable biological functions) chicken menstruation.Sweet potatoes are basically the best food in the whole world so combining them with anything will make any other thing better. No exceptions. None!I cannot stand sweet potatoes or yams, fried or in other things, or made into french fries. But I will not claim that others cannot like them.

extreme tolerance, peppercornsTake your plate of scrambled eggs. Sprinkle [ground] black pepper on until you cannot see eggs. Eat. It turned out quite well.

While not precisely tasting GOOD, I found an oddity in combination: Tabasco sauce (the basic red kind) and ground black pepper, added to the same soup, appeared to cancel out most of each others' attributes and tastes.

French fries and gravy.

When I lived in NC and worked in a steakhouse and there were leftover fries from an order, it was a quick and easy way to get a potatoes 'n gravy experience, without using silverware or being even the slightest bit complicated. Just dip and go.

People thought it was weird. But now I live in Canada, and here, it's like the most natural thing ever.

Mac and cheese + sugar


Putting Doritos chips inside a bowl of cheap ramen makes for good eats as well

Cubes of cooked potato, fresh diced tomato, fresh coarsely chopped onion, rice krispies, and one or more chutneys (we usually use a good salsa verde from the store, which is basically a chutney).

It isn't too weird, but I mixed apple butter with cottage cheese and it's AMAZING!!!!

French fries and gravy.

I'm trying to figure out why anyone would ever consider potatoes and gravy a weird combination.

they're practically best buddies!

Indeed, this defiance of logic baffled me as well.

Tonight I went to Noodles & Company for dinner. I had their Pesto Cavatappi with Chicken.

C''mon man! Nobody calls it "Noodles & Company", it's just "Noodles"

Great place, but the cavatappi is the worst thing on the menu, IMO, just below buttered noodles.

Their mac & cheese would be good if it wasn't so dry and they put more sauce on it. You always have to order extra sauce.

95% of the time I go there, I order the Linguini. Normally I don't like linguini, but the sauce they use, along with the combination of vegetables they have in it, are perfect to me.

A good combo is Dill pickel potato chips and chocolate. Yum!

No, I'm serious, though. Ketchup and grape jelly. Or cranberry sauce. Put it on meatballs.

Yup yup. In my family there are two easy ways to make the sauce for cocktail meatballs: BBQ sauce and grape jelly or chili sauce and cranberry sauce. Though you could probably just combine any two of those things and still get some kickass meatballs.

One time I had some meatballs that were made with some sort of mustard and jelly/cranberry mixture and they were also pretty great.

The only weird combo I can think of is cheddar cheese on top of kettle corn. It's a good salty/savory mix for me.
