Ever thought 'am I the first person EVER to experience this combination?'

Peg Apr 2, 2008 12:32 PM

So... I needed a high-protein, cold comfort food for breakfast, and came up with scrambled eggs, cottage cheese and smoked trout - all mixed together and refrigerated till the next day. And it was really GOOD. (Even more so for lunch with horseradish sauce mixed in).
And I was thinking - has anyone ever made this combination before? Anywhere?

What have you made/mixed that was just as delicous as you had imagined - which would never appear in a cookbook and so may never EVER have been made before?

    A favorite Jewish food item is lox and eggs and onions, often with cream cheese mixed in -- so you certainly aren't far off that tip. I usually eat it hot but it probably tastes just as good cold.

      Here's another similar combo - smoked salmon quiche with sour cream. (I often will add cream cheese to the eggs too)

        I'm guessing there's nothing new under the sun...

          My daughters fav combo was a hot dog sliced into coins and layered with ketchup, mustard and peanut butter. pretty tasty but weird. Anybody else make this?

            I experienced this a couple times, only to find out I was completely wrong. Adding coffee to gravy, for instance.

              And hopefully the last.

              Many years ago jfood had some leftover lamb. Wanting to make a sandwich for the next day he combined some mayo with mint jelly and spread it on some toasted bread. Some sliced lamb in between and a big bite.

              If you are imagining how disgusting that light green stuff must have looked, the taste was even worse.

                You should have used yogurt, jfood!

                A few weeks ago I had leftover rice and beans, along with kale and broccoli sauteed in oil and garlic. everything sprinkled with sriracha and soy sauce and topped with a whole avocado cut into big chunks. It was seriously amazing.

                  Once... then I saw Bourdain in Namibia and was deflated to learn that Wild Boar Anus cooked in Ashes was already a traditional dish invented thousands of years ago.

                    I once turned random Indian take-away leftovers into risotto.

                    go figure!

                    I am sure no-one has, or will, ever again experience the brilliance that was some random palak paneer, a bit of allo ghobi, the sauce from the chicken makhani and a few chunks of chicken in cashew gravy, added to arborio rice cooked with "italian chicken stock"

                      toast + peanut butter + dried pork sung (in chinese stores) + pickled radish (wu ling tsai)

                        Can of black beans, peanut butter and teriyaki sauce to taste, eaten with tortilla chips- my college roommates used to think I was pregnant when I would make this, but it's so gooooood.

                          I make a killer dip with Indian Bharta Bengan, cream cheese and a food processor.

                            Maybe it's more common than I think, but I once wanted to add some smoked chili to a standard lentil stew... (Some rice, milk, wet bread, you know the drill)... I picked the wrong jar and ended pouring a whole lot of powdered cinnamon on them; it was actually VERY GOOD.
