    I like to put a dab of mayo in stir fried rice. It’s so good

    That sounds good to me too!

    I like a combination of mayo & ketchup with fries or on a sweet potato.

    I like white gravy, but prefer to have a little ketchup with it if possible. I put ketchup on green beans. I put ketchup on brown/pinto beans, any type of bean really.

    Aside from the above, I actually dislike ketchup (with fries etc).

    I like sour cream in almost anything...when my husband makes a very spicy stir fry or curry, I always put sour cream or cottage cheese in it to cool it down and honestly now I prefer it with those things mixed in.

    I used to eat cottage cheese on pot pies (the cheap beef or chicken Banquet brand) as a teen. I haven't had that in probably 20 years but it still sounds kind of good and I wouldn't want a pot pie without cottage cheese.

    I've started eating toast with coconut or cashew butter, and a fried egg on top. Sort of like a sandwich. For some reason the flavors just work.

    In Holland, everyone eats fries with mayo. Sometimes also with ketchup and peanut satay sauce too. The last combination is known as "patatjes oorlog" or "french fry war".

    Ditto mayo/ketchup mix for fries. Or mayo/sriratcha. Nothing weird with that.

    peanut butter and banana on my toast. If I have extra calories throw on a slice or two of bacon.
    Bacon roasted jalapeno pancake

    English muffin with peanut butter, banana and honey. Now i want to add bacon next time!

    how do you make a bacon roasted jalapeno pancake? I'm not 100% sure what it is, but somehow it still sounds amazing!

    It's amazing. A place called Orphan's in midtown Sacramento has this savory pancake. The pancake has cheddar cheese in it which is good, but not essential. The batter is poured over chopped crispy bacon and roasted jalapeno slices. Just be sure if you don't want it too hot the peppers have to be cooked enough to be soft and seeds removed.

    Oh it is. The restaurant is in a neighborhood with restricted parking. I have driven around it for 1/2 hour before giving up and going home.

    I used to eat peanut butter and pimento cheese spread sandwiches with plain Doritos crushed in the middle on white bread. Still my favorite sandwich even though I haven’t had it in a few years.

    I love french toast with tomato ketchup. Going to make that this week because we will have white bread in the house for the Christmas stuffing.

    @acpgee Don't know if it's a Dutch thing but my old best friend had just come from Holland and her favorite (and one of mine once I tried it) snack was butter smeared on fresh bread with chocolate sprinkles. We had poffages (sp? little pancake things) and soft-boiled eggs in holders for breakfast all the time.

    It's dutch thing to hate buttered toast with sugar sprinkles. Chocolate is a favourite of children. New parents serve buttered tea rusks (beschuit) with sugary anise flavoured sprinkles to neighbours and colleagues. Blue ones for boys and pink ones for girls. The sprinkles for newborn babies are calledd muisjes, because their shape resemble mouse droppings.

    You would have had poffertjes. Funny I saw the same pan for those tiny pancakes in Thailand too, but made with coconut milk instead of dairy milk.

    There are two of these "weird things I do with food threads", darn I was missing the pleasure of reading this one. :D

    -Salsa goes with everything:
    Baked potato & salsa
    Canned tuna & salsa
    Eggs & salsa
    Avocado toast & salsa
    Celery stick & salsa
    Steel cut oats, quinoa, rice, any other whole grain & salsa
    Pasta & salsa
    (You get it)
    - if salsa doesn’t go with it (or I’m out 😱), then Mustard goes with everything!
    or soy sauce
    Or hot sauce
    -Take things apart to eat because playing with my food is part of the fun! Sandwiches, desserts, candies, snack nibbles
    - anything can be eaten at any meal
    - either eat everything separately and sequentially or mix it together casserole style before eating.
    - I grew up with four siblings, so I eat FAST (even when I think I’m eating slowly)

    My favorite breakfast growing up was leftover chicken pie.

    A lot of my weird food things derive from having food intolerances, which won't kill you, they just make you wish you could die. So I don't eat strawberries or pears unless I've eaten meat within the last 30 minutes, and I can deglaze a pan with wine but I can't drink it with the meal.
