Food combinations that shouldn't taste good but do.

RowanGolightly | Mar 5, 2012 08:06 AM

I have a friend who is working on ideas to plan a company dinner. She came up with the idea of "Things that shouldn't taste good, but they do" and of course was immediately put on the planning committee.

She's looking for ideas for appetizers, main dishes and desserts.

Zucchini bread
Sweet potato (and pumpkin) pie
Strawberry rhubarb pie
Cocktail meatballs made with grape jelly and chili sauce
Bacon chocolate chip cookies

I've suggested to her my Texican Lasagne and my Bacon-Apple-Gruyere-Pecan fold-ups and some other friends have suggested some things as well.

But I wanted to post this here. Please note; this isn't just weird food combos that you like (my mother lived peanut butter and onion sandwiches *shudder*) but rather, ideas for recipes (or the recipes themselves) for food combinations that don't sound, from the title, as if they'd be good but that are.

Ok, go....
