Some people like to get creative in the kitchen, especially when their pantry is bare. Users in a popular online forum shared some creative food combinations that sound completely disgusting but, in reality, taste pretty amazing! Here are some of the top responses.

1. Cinnamon Bagel With Jalapeno Cream Cheese

A person said, “Someone at the bagel shop in front of me once asked for a cinnamon bagel with jalapeno cream cheese. It lived rent-free in my head for years until I dared to order one. It was phenomenal.”

2. Cinnamon Rolls With Chilli

“My high school sometimes served cinnamon rolls over chili. I’m not saying it was great, but it was much better than I’d have thought,” someone suggested.

3. Jelly and Scrambled Eggs

One user responded, “My dad would put a little scoop of grape or mayhaw jelly on top of his scrambled eggs. It sounds gross, but it’s actually amazing.”

4. Apples and Sharp Cheddar

“Apples and sharp cheddar cheese or apple pie with cheese melted on top,” someone said.

Another person added, “It is not only customary but actually written in the State of Vermont bylaws that any slice of apple pie served should be accompanied by either a slice of sharp cheddar cheese or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.”

5. Beets and Red Curry

“Beets and red curry work surprisingly well together. I make a red curry udon with beets and coconut milk. It’s a hideous shade of pink but absolutely delicious,” someone shared.

6. Vinaigrette With Creole Mustard

“My grandma used to make a vinaigrette with Creole mustard. I love to drizzle a bit on spaghetti, tomato-based beef stew, or plain white rice,” someone said.

7. Feta and Watermelon

Someone suggested, “Feta and watermelon! Maybe add some fresh basil or cucumber! It’s delicious! Sweet and salty!”

8. Cream Cheese, Green Olives, Celery, and Paprika

“Cream cheese mixed with green olives, spread on celery and sprinkled with paprika. My grandmother made these on special occasions, and they were delicious,” someone said.

9. Soy Sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream

“I always get looks at Chinese buffets when I dab a little soy sauce in my soft serve vanilla ice cream. It gives me a similar feeling as eating sea salt caramel ice cream,” someone said.

10. Peanut Butter and Pickles

“Peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. As someone who experiences frequent nausea, they slap when nauseous,” a user said.

11. Blue Cheese and Dark Chocolate

“Blue cheese and dark chocolate. Go ahead and downvote me, but it’s legit sorcery,” a person said.

12. Meatballs, BBQ Sauce, and Grape Jelly

“Meatballs, bbq sauce, and grape jelly. Throw it all in a slow cooker. Sounds weird, but it’s delicious and always a hit at potlucks/parties,” a person shared.

13. Spicy Doritos and Plain Greek Yogurt

“I like to dip spicy Doritos in plain Greek yogurt. It’s chip and dip, but the seasoning is on the chip instead of the dip. In loving memory of Blaze Doritos,” a person said.

14. Baked Beans With Mac & Cheese

“Baked beans mixed into Mac and cheese. So good! Maybe other people do it, too. I don’t know. That’s mine,” someone shared.

15. Peanut Butter and Maple Syrup

“When I was a teenager, after school, my friends made us a snack and made toast, smeared peanut butter, and drizzled maple syrup. I was disgusted when I saw this, but she made me try it, and it was good,” someone said.

16. Peanut Butter on Pizza

A user suggested, “Peanut butter on pizza. I know it sounds awful, but if you’ve ever had Thai food with peanut sauce and chicken, it isn’t terribly far off that flavor profile. I put the peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it up and make it easier to smear on the pizza first.”

17. Tuna With Mac & Cheese

“Tuna with Mac and cheese. They have many flavors in the little pouches, and they’re cheap,” someone said.
