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

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....
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.

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.

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.
