Fun thread - unusual favourite foods

As I sit here watching my kid devour yet another helping of turnip (technically, rutabaga, but she doesn't care), I thought it would be fun to share what you or your family's weird or unusual favourite foods are.  
 
Obviously, I have one kid obsessed with turnip.  
 
Another one of my kids eats a cheese and ketchup sandwich pretty much daily. No meat, nothing, just cheese and ketchup.

sandwich

I like cheese and honey sandwich once in awhile or peanut butter and dill pickle sandwich. Nobody else here ever asks  
me to make them the same.

Cheese and honey

Love cheese and honey sandwitches, also sometimes make a toast and put raspberry jam on it then put cheese on it and melt the cheese in the micro wave, also like ham sandwitches with cranberry sauce on them.  
When I was in the hospital years ago I asked for a 1/3 cup of oatmeal and a large glass of water, the first time was a flop since they brought me cooked oatmeal, had to explain that I just put the oatmeal in the water and leave it till it softened up, then I drink the water and oatmeal, although it doesn't seem to taste as good with chlorinated town water.

me

When I was little it was miracle whip sandwiches. When I was a teenager, it was old cheddar cheese & strawberry jam sandwich in a sandwich maker. Today I enjoy french fries with ketchup and mayo, sliced cucumber with coleslaw dressing, and pizza with so much pineapple on it you can’t tell what else is on there! And I have to have salsa and sour cream on my pizza pops

..

I’m a pretty plain eater for the most part but I love reading weird combos that others eat! It’s hard to imagine some of them tasting good lol  
 
I don’t eat these things often (or not at all anymore lol) but some that I’ve had when younger and liked are:  
 
*mayo sandwiches  
 
*lettuce and cheese whiz sandwiches  
 
*ketchup on toast  
 
*toast dunked in tomato juice (this one I still do when not feeling well)  
 
*toast with jam and block cheese (was always told this is a Mennonite thing?)  
 
* pepperoni sticks dipped in the nacho cheese sauce or in Philadelphia’s herb and spice chip dip (ok, this one I sometimes still do too lol)  
 
*mcd’s fries in s&s sauce  
 
*slice of raw potato with salt  
 
*ketchup and pepper on KD ( I think it’s normal but husband is disgusted lol)

Mmmmm mustard

Toasted mustard sandwiches. Soooo good  
 
And as a kid, I used to get deep fried pizza pops at the sportsplex canteen and bite the end off and squeeze mustard inside.

Food

Fun thread. From a young age (about 2) kiddo liked his edamame beans and hummus. We figured we were lucky parents.  
 
When my brother and I were kids we went through an experimental kick where we figured we’d come up with the next great food. Best to come out of it were:  
- ritz crackers crumbled on toast  
- kool aid apples. Basically punch a hole in an apple with a corer, pour kool aid in the middle and microwave it  
For some reason neither one caught on

Pawprints said "Peanut butter and bananas or cucumbers and mayo sandwiches....and then there is sliced cucumbers, sliced onions soaked in vinegar with a bit of salt. "

Take your sliced cucumbers & onions to the next level. Drain most (but not all) of the vinegar, and then toss the cucs & onions in sour cream and chopped fresh dill.  
 
Sooooo good!!

Your kool aid apples got marketed as Grapples, I think.

sandwiches

My family has a penchence for weird sandwiches I think.  
 
I just remembered my mom eating Cheez Whiz and relish sandwiches.  
 
And my brother that would make a sandwich out of anything when we had buns with supper. I remember him making a cabbage roll and broccoli with cheese sauce sandwich one night at supper (and ate it).

You mean to tell me I've been working all these years when beach retirement for me and my closest 100 family and friends was a simple patent away?  ;) ... tho things probably go downhill when Koolaid comes for their piece of the pie

Still like

About 2-3 Tbsps of Cream of mushroom soup (undiluted) spread over a slice of bread and put under the broiler until the soup starts to bubble a bit. My Mom used to make it for me when I was a kid and I still love it 50 years later.

Gizzards and hearts

Chicken or turkey gizzards and hearts. And necks! I grew up in southern Saskatchewan and these are still considered delicacies!

Radish Sandwich

Sliced radish on toasted rye bread with miracle whip. Close second is cucumber.  
Just something about the crunch.  
Haven't tried it for a while but remember going through an egg salad topped with dill pickle sandwich phase.

Not just Ukrainians

My ancestors were from Scotland and giblets were always used whenever a chicken or turkey was cooked. Once saw large packages of giblets in Superstore, but the better half said no.  
Adam, liked your comment about the apples, you do realise there is a reason not to let kids around the microwave.  
Another one just crossed my mind and that was baked apples, which were stuffed with raisins and brown sugar.

necks and stuff

Oh man, I forgot about the necks!! My cousins used to fight over the turkey neck at family gatherings.  
 
My grandmother LOVES radish sandwiches (see, again, my family with the sandwich...)!!  
 
The mushroom soup toast thing actually sounds pretty tasty. I might have to try that.

Bananas

Perhaps to some not unusual.  
 
My brother ate bananas with the skin on.  
 
I thought it was gross. Apparently more nutrition in it that way. But he started young so he just liked them that way.
