Unusual (for some) thing you like to eat.

I occasionally like to saute a bunch of chopped onion and make a sandwich with whole wheat bread. My wife didn't join me in enjoying what she felt was a kooky thing to eat. I'm guessing there are others who have favorite things they eat that are out of the ordinary?

    Oh, and being from Scotland haggis is a treat many don’t enjoy. I’m somewhat akin to haggis eaters being from Pennsylvania and enjoying Hog Mau, when young, which is made from or in-cased in a pig stomach.

    Something I use to eat when I was quite young and haven’t had in a very long time is a french fry sandwich. It consist of fried potatoes layer between two slices of bread coated with mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
    Consumed with calories, not recommended for those that are afraid of gaining a pound or two.

      That is the kind of thing I was hoping to here that others do things to their taste that seems strange for most folks. When I was a kid I worked at a pajama factory and one of the women sewers used to bring for lunch, baked bean sandwiches. That we all thought was strange and unlike your sandwich and mine hers was eaten cold. At least I’m assuming you ate your french fry sandwich warm or hot.

      Thanks for responding.

    I don’t eat anything I consider weird. I like peanut butter and lettuce sandwiches and plant and banana sandwiches, and that is about as weird as I get. I may try a grilled onion sandwich but I would put grilled hot dogs on it or grill hamburger. I have thought hard and I just don’t eat weird stuff. I have eaten turtle soup and escargots and I guess escargots are pretty weird.

      Escargot and turtle soup are perhaps not extremely common but in my mind not real unusual either. Putting lettuce with peanut butter seems more unusual to me. I like onions and saute onions especially on almost anything or just their soft, smooth, warm and delicious self on bread. It seems that onions are the single most common cause of me going shopping. lol

    My dad and I used to eat Canibal sandwitches. Raw Hamburger on lite pumpernickel bread with slice of raw onion, capers, and a slice of limburger cheese. Loved those..not sure if I could do it now though…lol

      I’ve got to be honest. That does not sound good to me. lol But it is the kind of thing I was hoping to here on this and I would try it if it was offered to me but don’t think I;ll go shopping for ingredients lol. trust you butcher is 1st thing with that raw hamburger.

          Most of us don’t get to meet the butcher anymore. And based on hamburger that I buy which looks to be very fresh, and when I open the pack there is brown, not as fresh, hidden under the fresh. Tricky bastards.

    My mom used to make us pigtails with kidneys and barley. She usually served it with blood soup with noodles and prunes. I actually liked it but could never make it for my kids and Jim. Just the smell of the kidneys cookies would set them running. By the way it was duck blood and she had to go to the Polish butcher to buy it. What can I say?…..we were always healthy.

      I have never had that but think I would have eaten it if my mom made it. I didn’t like the looks of oysters (raw) and for some reason asparagus. I think I ate all else that was cooked by my mom. And we in Pennsylvania often ate Hog Mau a sausage, potatoes and other stuff I’m not sure of stuffed in a pigs stomach and baked till crisp. I liked that too. I wonder if we were hungrier than kids today. I’m quite sure we were. Asparagus in now one of my favorite veggies. Oysters still don’t look right to me. (G)

    It is those comfort foods from early life……..British cooking got a bad rap from Americans who were stationed in Britain during the war. What chances did British cooks have? they were rationed some thing like 1 egg per week and perhaps 2oz of butter to last the week. Real British cooking is as good as anywhere. People like food and every culture has great tasty foods, even if every culture have certain foods that immediately do not appeal to others. As a child I only ever had home cooked foods but this is not true for most children today. So much processed foods and take aways and families that seldom eat together. I love- bubble and squeak. This is mashed potato with cream and salt and pepper. This is mixed with a little chopped onion and with shredded cooked savoy cabbage.This is then put into a fry pan with a little fat or oil and this is over a low to medium heat. Don’t turn it over until you have a nice browned crust on the bottom. Then turn in one piece if you can and brown the other side. This can be a side dish but good just as is. I also have an idiosyncratic sandwich thing…… Toast slice of bread, cover with mashed or sliced banana. Then top with very mature sharp cheddar cheese and put under the grill. Real sharp farmhouse cheddar not the supermarket imitation cheddar cheese.

      I must confess that about the only thing I actually know of British cooking is British Banger’s and Yorkshire pudding. I like both and at least in my mind I have a favorable feel about it though without much experience.

      I have never been wild about banana’s and think a banana split is a great way to ruin ice cream. I love cheddar cheese and sharp as I can find it. I have often wondered just what causes the unique flavor of cheddar. Is it a flavor that is added in the process or is it a result of the process?

        The cheddar process of making cheese must be the most copied because so many countries produce a “cheddar” cheese. Some are very good although there are a lot that are so mild they taste of nothing to me. I have had real Cheddar made in the Cheddar district of England and it was a great experience. It was tinged with an orange colour, not rubbery at all and had a depth of flavour. It was just great but then I love cheese period. There are so many different cheese made in UK both traditional and artisan new cheeses. The French identify a property of wine which is the nature of the land in which the grapes were grown. The same is true of cheese I think……what and where the cows eat makes a big difference.
