Strange Sandwiches

Do you ever put certain strange food items on sandwiches that others might consider unusual? Elvis Presley was known for his wild food cravings. His favorite was a fried banana and peanut butter sandwich. He also had a fondness for bacon, peanut butter, and jelly on Italian bread according to Wikipedia. In a recent survey conducted by NJ 101.5 radio, listeners called in their favorite strange food items. Here is a partial list of some of the most bizarre sandwich concoctions. See if you agree? – Potato salad, cole slaw, and crushed potato chips mixed together. – Sardines in hot sauce with pickles, sliced onions, and Swiss cheese. – Marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, bananas, apples. – Pickled green tomatoes. – Peanut butter and jelly beans. – Roast beef, fried egg, tomato, and goat cheese. – Peanut butter and American cheese. Seems to me like peanut butter is a good combination with many different food items. Maybe Ol' Elvis had the right idea. What strange food combinations have you invented? Let me know, I don't want to miss out on a good thing! Source- NJ 101.5 and Wikipedia Photo- U Tube

Havent really any very strange tastes, but those look interesting. Except for maybe peanut butter and parmesan cheese mixed.

Yes, peanut butter should stay away from cheese! Now jelly, that's another matter

This is a strange combination. I like peanut butter and I like mustard but as Kipling once said about the "east and west never the twain shall meet" so too do I believe these two ingredient must never come together in a sandwich. But I fear my curiosity and taste buds getting the better of me. maybe someday....

Those are some wild sandwich combinations. And yes, I think Elvis had to many of those fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

I guess everyone has their own tastes and for them it is not weird.

To each his/her own as they say... Perhaps we are missing out on trying a good thing?

These certainly are different. I am not sure if I eat anything or put anything out of the ordinary in my sandwiches.

I usually make normal sandwiches too Hanni. I might put cheese or lettuce and tomato, but nothing unusual. Although I would like to try peanut butter and banana together, lol.

Certainly peanut butter seems to feature in a lot of these groups. My sister liked jam (jelly) and cheese in her sandwiches.

Love jelly with peanut butter. My brother used to eat cream cheese and jelly every day for school. But jelly and cheese? I don't know about that one, lol.

@dgobucks226 My husband likes banana sandwiches. I can't even make them. It just seems really weird.

@JudyEv I put bananas in my cereal and oatmeal, so maybe bananas could be considered a condiment like mayo and ketchup, ha.

A sandwich connoisseur is he! Roast beef is a great sandwich. I like mine on a club or hoagie roll.

Of those that were posted, here are the combinations that I'd try: – Potato salad, cole slaw, and crushed potato chips mixed together. – Sardines in hot sauce with pickles, sliced onions, and Swiss cheese. – Peanut butter and jelly beans. – Peanut butter and American cheese. My strange food combination is pancakes with honey or maple syrup with lots of hot sauce.

Hot and sweet pancakes! Now that is a strange combo Allen. P.S.- You are much braver than I am with trying those sandwiches. I just can't picture jelly beans on a sandwich?

@dgobucks226 the sweetness cuts through the spiciness of the hot sauce - so that evens out. Aside from taste, I want varying textures in my food so jelly beans will provide just that.

I have eaten a peanut butter and banana sandwich and that is a might good sandwich. I would put potato chips on baloney sandwiches when I was a kid. In high school, I would just put mustard, I love it, on 2 slices of white bread and eat a mustard sandwich.

Mustard sandwich, umm? I used to make the classic butter and sugar sandwich as a kid. Delicious! I am going to try out that peanut butter and banana one. Sounds good

Oh dear. Sorry Elvis.... that doesn't sound too great. I like a meatball sandwhich - sometimes I like to put spaghetti in there too lol

Why not spaghetti goes with meatballs! Sounds good I actually tried a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich once. Not for me, although maybe the cook was to blame

I have always had peanut butter and banana sandwiches but we do not fry them. I also pickle green tomatoes with hot peppers, if you have ever at chow chow that is ground up pickled tomatoes. Yes on the peanut butter and marshmallow fluff, that is like eating candy. We also have pineapple and mayo sandwiches,banana and mayo sandwiches , red ripe tomato and mayo sandwiches . But I used to be 100% vegetarian so just about any fruit or veggie can make a sandwich.

Nice response Andria! Much appreciated and now I have plenty of different sandwich ideas to try I like candy so peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sounds like a keeper! And I like tomatoes so that is something worth trying. I like pineapple too, but not on a sandwich? Of course, I never tried it that way.

I think the sandwich was invented for the convenience of putting anything edible between two slices of bread. When I'm lazy to cook or need to prepare a meal only for myself, I might make a sandwich with any leftover meat from a previous meal.

Yes, for sure. I do that with meatloaf, meat balls and roasted chicken for sandwiches

Wow those are pretty strange combinations! I cook sardines in tomato sauce and a little bit of blended chilli but I don't think I could tolerate the taste of cheese and pickles in them.
