i did an interesting thread about the strangest drinks we have this time it is about the weird and wonderful food we eat. (strangest foods we eat)

i will start it off. years ago i loved my curries and only made curry sandwiches was a bit difficult eating them with the rice dropping out of them. i also loved to make pork pie sandwiches, loved it covered in brown sauce. one of my favourites had to be pizza sandwich those small pizza you can buy.

weird or what mikeydt1

Mine is hot buttered toast smothered in marmite with tomato sauce drizzled over, it's that sweet and sour combo that is so attractive.
Another is toast or bread but smear meat dripping after cooking and once it has set on and add salt and pepper to taste.

Both are very yummy in my book.

I used to love supernoodles with cheese in a sandwich. So unhealthy and carb dense - I'd never eat it now.

Used to have a friend that drank gravy - not sure if that's a strangest food or drink thread but heyho.

Peanut butter and cucumber. Either on toast or dipping cucumber sticks in a jar of peanut butter.

Might have to get some cucumber and give that a go, pretty sure there's a jar of PB at Bruce's belonging me xx

My 4 year old granddaughter is addicted to celery boiled with a stock cube, weird or what for a child.
Can't beat Christmas cake with a crumbly Lancashire cheese or a strawberry jam and cheese sandwich.

I’ve not done this for years. Eat a Mars bar while drinking @ hot coffee.
No other foods that I feel are strange together but
I love cold food that’s usually eaten hot ie , chips, some fish esp cod roe, baked beans , roast taters and loads more

As a kid toast, butter, strawberry jam and a hard boiled egg sliced on it was a favourite treat, still eat the odd one today

Some of these do make me think “really?!”, although don’t knock it until you’ve tried it I guess.:)

I do sometimes have turmeric on my porridge...actually I quite fancy that now.

I remember as a Kid we were sometimes allowed dripping on toast (sprinkled with salt)
more recently the strangest thing I’ve eaten is marmite on toast topped with marmalade (low sugar marmalade)

What on earth is 'Onion Pie' Kaylz?
Ermm, the best way to describe it would be like a Scotch pie but the meat is much softer than that of a Scotch pie mixed with loads of onion xx

Seconded! My mother always made a huge Christmas cake, and used to give me a good wedge to take home after I’d visited. That and a slab of cheese used to keep me going for lunches for months. I used to eat it with Cheddar, but have since seen the error of my ways. It has got to be Lancashire! (I’m now married to a Preston born man).

Sounds nice not strange.

Like hot toasted buttered roll with marmite on top slice cheese spread on bottom half, in between what's left of boiled eggs after dipping toast, delicious. Have this least once a week.
