I was describing a fond childhood dish to a friend who thought I was nuts. My mother used to simmer sauerkraut with a little sugar, black pepper, and butter until tender. Then she would stir in a can of pork and beans and heat through. This mix was served on top of boiled potatoes and the family wolfed the mix down.
I therefore had to make some and served him a plate. He loved it and offered his apologies. I'd like to hear from others who might have similar "weirdo" dishes that are incredibly good!
