Macaroni and Cheese with Ketchup
One fan of The Daily Meal told us that whenever she’s making macaroni and cheese, she squirts a bit of ketchup into her recipe to give it a tangy appeal. Gross, you say? Don’t knock it until you try it.
Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwich
Calling all pregnant ladies: ever have a pickle and peanut butter sandwich? Putting a whole new spin on the lunchbox staple, the unlikely combination of sour pickles and creamy peanut butter is actually somewhat of a revelation.
Fries and a Vanilla Milkshake
Move aside ketchup, because a milkshake is the new dipping condiment for fries, according to a lot of our fans. The crispy and salty fry gets a mellow treatment from a vanilla milkshake, and the fast-food staple and dessert prove to be quite a satisfying combo.
Ginger Beer and Milk
Remember the days when your mother would make you finish your milk at the dinner table? One of our fans does, and they say they like it more now with a splash of ginger beer. It's an unusual concoction that proves to be quite stimulating to the taste buds.
Crunchy Peanut Butter and Vienna Sausages
Vienna sausages can be pretty unappealing as it is, but one fan swears by their Vienna sausage and crunchy peanut butter recipe. Will you take their word for it?
Cornbread Mixed With Buttermilk, and Green Onions
This one spells mush, but we have to say, it sounds like a pretty flavorful mush. One fan said their Tennessee–born mother’s recipe of cornbread, buttermilk, and green onions is one they just can’t get enough of.
Lemon Wedges Dipped in Soy Sauce
Can’t get enough soy sauce? Next time you’re eating Asian cuisine, try dipping a lemon wedge instead of your chopstick into the soy sauce for a unique and salty bite.
Peanut Butter, Green Olive, and Miracle Whip Sandwich
Earlier we saw sour combined with peanut butter, but this fan adds in a third component with the tangy flavor of Miracle Whip to make a green olive, peanut butter, and Miracle Whip sandwich.
Milk and Cracker Shake
A lot of people love smashing their Saltines up in a big bowl of tomato soup, but one user suggests trying a German take and eating milk and crackers together, saying that it’s the perfect remedy for an upset stomach.
Tuna and Breadcrumb Salad
For those who can’t get enough tuna salad, we loved this recipe from a Daily Meal staff member that adds breadcrumbs to it for an extra bit of texture.
Riceless Avocado Roll
An editor at The Daily Meal says that whenever she’s hungry and in a hurry, she makes her take on an avocado sushi roll, wrapping diced avocado in nori for a quick bite.
Veggie Burger with Brussels Sprouts, Egg Whites, and Mozzarella Cheese
For those who complain that a veggie burger tastes too bland, try this recipe. One user microwaves a veggie burger, Brussels sprouts, egg whites, and mozzarella cheese together and enjoys it with a squirt of ketchup.
Buffalo Cheese Fries
We weren’t surprised when one of our interns said they liked blue cheese, seeing has he’s from Buffalo, N.Y., and his blue cheese Buffalo fries demonstrated to us that blue shouldn't just be reserved for wings.
Potato and Macaroni Salad Sandwich
Rather than one serving of carbs, an editor at The Daily Meal triples hers with her potato and macaroni salad sandwich recipe.
Salami and Cream Cheese Rolls
While many enjoy salami between two slices of bread, one fan likes to slather a piece with cream cheese and roll it up like a pig in a blanket for a bread-less take on the meat.
