My favorite pub serves (upon special request) the greatest concoction known to man: Bronco fries. Take french fries. Add bacon, green onions, diced tomatoes and three kinds of cheese. And you're in heaven. I'm always tempted to ask for salsa with 'em, since they remind me of Taco Bell's fries supreme...except much, much better.

one day home alone when I was abuot 7 or 8, I had made a turkey sandwich and realized we were out of mayo and mustard. I didn't want to eat it plain and all I could find was barbecue sauce. I poured that stuff on, slapped a slice of good ol' kraft cheese and it tasted pretty damn good....but I felt sick about half an hour later.
I occassionally like to dip french fries in mayo. I haven't done it in awhile, I should though, that sounds mighty good right now. I also experimented with chips in sandwiches. Crunchy Cheetos in tuna = mmm, mmm, good. I also sometimes dip my pizza in ranch.
I have no problems with dipping anything in ranch. I don't do it alot, but I see the appeal.
As for REALLY weird things, there's a Filipino dish called "sisig". It's pretty much chopped up and fried pig ears/cheeks/parts of the head mixed with onions, vinegar, and some other stuff. The best is when they bring it out on a sizzling platter and drop and egg on top and the egg fries over it.
Now there's different variations. At all of the places i've tried it at back here in the States, it's not served on a sizzling platter and there's no egg, seems to be alot more vinegar used as well as other vegitables thrown in. It's just not the same. It's a great dish that goes well with beer.
It's reaaaaaaaallllllly good. pork is pork people. :)

A bar near me does that too, but they DO add the salsa, and they use waffle fries. They call 'em Irish Nachos. Add chicken or ground beef for an extra 2 bucks too.
Marco: But we can chew nails and shoot 'em out as bullets, right? Quinn: Nails, chains -- you won't have titanium teeth for nothing. Murphy: Nails are like candy to robots! And we'll eat tires instead of licorice. Debbie: GAH! No we won't!! Murphy: Maybe YOU won't.
Peanut Butter (chunky or creamy), Jelly (grape), and hard-boiled eggs....or scrambled egges. You don't want to go too heavy on the jelly, because that can overpower the whole delicate balance of the sandwich. Make sure there is plenty of PB though. The scrambled eggs, to protect the bread or roll...or matzoh...must be scrambled dry though, not that drippy shit. A good alternative, if no bread is desired or available, is to make an omelette, throw some PB&J in the middle, and wrap it up.
Also, if you feel like scrambling eggs, scramble some grape jelly in there as they start to firm up. It will turn them green, and kids LOVE it. I made them for my son's sleepover party crew, along with some ham (GE&H), and it was a HUGE hit. Also goes well on a PB sandwich (said green eggs, that is)
Everyone I have ever witnessed trying this has loved it. I have been eating this shit for 30 years, and my cholesterol is still under 150. Yay me.
Is a cup full of McDonalds fries swimming in chocolate shake wrong? If so, I don't wanna be right...
"Firstly, you must find... another shrubbery! . . .Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must place it here beside this shrubbery, only slightly higher so you get a two-level effect with a little path running down the middle. Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest, with... a herring!"
Originally posted by MoeGatesI'm a nut for pickled herring, which I'm about 50 years too young to eat.
I'm also about 50 years to young to love the stuff, but forget the pickled stuff you can get in any supermarket & go for the REAL stuff!!
Either "Shmaltz" (which is a VERY salty herring), or "Matjes" herring (which is salty, oily, pinkish & amazing).
Since you live in Brooklyn, you should check out a place called "Schwartz's". They have so many varieties of herring it's ridiculous & they are pretty much all fantastic. They're famous for something called "Shtiglitz" (a delicious mix of herring bits & onions in a sweet cream sauce), so be sure to check that one out.
BTW, always eat herring on an "Ayer Keichel" (which roughly translates from Yiddish to "Egg Cracker")...
This isn't a gross combination or anything, but I have a habit of whenever I make a ham and cheese (or turkey and cheese or whatever) sandwich, I take the palm of my hand on the top slice of bread and just smash the living hell out of it, so that it's flat.
I then proceed to pick at the sandwich, reinforcing my old Indian name of "Eats Like A Bird".
I haven't seen the Sports Reporters in some time (I'm usually still sleeping at 10:00 AM), so I can't really say. I did like it back in the day with Schaap, Conlin, Albom, Lupica, Kornheiser, Wilbon, et. al. Saunders is all right, I guess.
