Some foods might not sound like a match made in heaven until you try them together. So many iconic, unlikely food combinations elevate both food items and are almost better together! A user on a popular internet forum asked: “What's an unlikely food combination that slaps?” which led to a lively debate in the comments about some of the best unlikely food combos.
Here are the top responses.
Crackers on a Cold Cut
One foodie shared: “Crackers on a cold cut sandwich."
Another agreed sharing: “Crushing Goldfish crackers up and using them as the top or crust for old-school Mac and cheese is so good it's probably illegal.”
Chips on Sandwich
One foodie shared: “I still put chips on my sandwiches if I have some. The crunch and flavor is a perfect addition.”
Another foodie agreed, remarking: “I never understood it until the day in my 30's I finally tried chips on a bologna sandwich. Game changer.”
Cheese and Peanut Butter Sandwich
One foodie shared: “Yes, peanut butter and cheese toasted sandwich!”
Another foodie agreed, sharing: “In Portland, there’s a burger shop called Killer Burger and they have the PBPB burger (that’s a cheeseburger with peanut butter, bacon, & pickles). It’s so surprisingly delicious.”
Hot Sauce and Salad
One foodie said, “Hot sauce and salad.”
Other foodies agreed, mentioning: “I put hot sauce on everything. Like, even spaghetti. I may have a problem.”
Black Coffee and Beef Jerky
One foodie shared: “Black coffee and beef jerky. Great way to start the day.”
Others agreed, sharing: “Add a nice chocolate bar to this. Sweet. Salty. Sip coffee. Ahhhh…”
Fried Foods Dipped in Honey
One foodie shared: “Fried foods dipped in honey. Savory and sweet. Favorites include any chicken tenders/nuggets and fried okra.”
Another foodie agreed, sharing, “Let me introduce you to the Manitoban staple: honey dill.
The creamy honey with lots of dill mixed in is perfect for chicken strips that have been fried (and even better if they were lightly seasoned or salted).
Make sure you’re either getting the good stuff (Greetalia brand) or you’re getting a recipe that mimics it closely."
Seasonings on Watermelon
One foodie commented, “People always look at me when I do it but a little salt of watermelon and cantaloupe is the best. It brings out the sweetness. The only people who have never batted an eye are chefs and people who cook often.”
Another foodie agreed, sharing: “Some people put black pepper on their cantaloupe in my family with the salt too, tbh! It’s good if you have a nice black pepper.”
Cheese and Apples
One foodie shared: “Cheddar and apples also slaps!”
Another foodie agreed commenting: “Brie cheese and Granny Smith apples make a good combo on a flatbread or something.”
Even more agreed, sharing: “In Italy we use cheese and fruit combinations pretty commonly for "fancy" dinners. Also, a common saying "al contadino non far sapere quanto è buono il formaggio con le pere" means "don't let the farmer know how good cheese is with pears."
