Unexpected Ingredient(s) That Made Your Recipe Rock!

I was making a roasted onion chicken gravy for some mashed potatoes when I ran up short on chicken stock; thinking I had pork stock in the freezer, I realized when I defrosted it that it was actually a homemade dashi (bonito, konbu, and shitake).

Wow, did that ever add a fabulous element to the dish! Earthy and complex.

Anyone else had a similar moment that you hoped for, but didn't really expect?
