  1. I like cottage cheese with chopped tomato, which is pretty standard, chopped pickle and lots of black pepper.

    1. Chopped up pickles (and raw onions and vinegar) in black beans. It's very traditional in my SO's cuban family, but it's one of those things that you don't usually see outside of someone's home.

      1. Sausage patties on whole wheat toast with grape jelly on one side and mustard on the other.

        1. I like to spread a layer of cream cheese on my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

            I have to admit, that sounds interesting, I'll have to try that one day.

              old thread, but it happened to pop up... i love doing this! every morning i have an english muffin with cream cheese on one side, peanut butter on the other, and jelly in the middle.

            2. I don't often do this, but every now and then...mayonnaise in mashed potatoes. Ah, the creamy goodness!

                My mom would reheat leftover mashed potatoes with a bit of mayo. I love those and still do that sometimes. She'd also mix in some mayo, cheese, and finely chopped onion into leftover mashed potatoes, then sprinkle the top with paprika, then bake.
