I put fish sauce in just about everything I can.  Just a splash.

I have noticed that in the cooking lessons, but I have to give you credit, you have converted me!!

beet juice?? never heard of that method.  my favorite pickled egg recipes include LOTS of jalapenos and garlic.  i also throw carrots and cauliflower into the brine to pickle along with the eggs.  i had some in minnesota that had cloves and found it quite disgusting.

Jalapenos and garlic sound win.

There's this crudite/pickle thing people here might be interested in, actually.  It's called turshi and it's Afghan/Iranian.  It's basically pickled veggies, but traditionally it's made with these tiny egglplants, onions, garlic cloves and peppers.

Tursh means sour in Persian, so that's why the name--they use lots of mustard seed.

Really? I had some clove / nutmeg ones recently that were quite good.   

i think it was more the element of surprise that ruined it for me.  up until that clove egg, i was under the impression that pickled eggs were all jalapenos and garlic, so when the clove hit, i was like "what the fuck is this?"

I follow.  I've had the same unpleasent experience with bastard Non- New England clam chowders.

They ARE different though.  One of few foods I just CAN'T see pairing with much else.
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

Peanut butter and bacon, in a sandwich.

Surprisingly nice.

I'm a mayo person.  haven't tried miracle whip, but I hate cool whip. 

Eggless (tofu) egg salad is pretty good.  Though I do LOVE putting things in eggs.  Just the other night I scrambled some with pine nuts, parmesan cheese, asiago cheese, zucchini, and herbs de province.  Frying one up with garlic salt all over it to make a sandwich is another favorite of mine. 

For some reason my favorite type of mac n cheese is the stuff from the box (annie's organic though, but I'll do easy mac too).  Plus I HATE bell peppers, and only like tomatoes if they are in a sauce, or somehow liquefied. 
It's all fun and games, till someone gets herpes.

On basically everything that I would put a condiment on, if on hand, I prefer salsa or sriracha to catsup or mustard. Salsa fries are so much more kickass than regular.

Would curry powder and tarragon in scrambled eggs count?

I guess I just don't know what an "eccentric" food habit is, anymore.

 :eek:

I miss sweet chilli sauce, I haven't seen it in North America yet, and I am eating college food so I don't actually cook so getting some may be kinda redundant.

eta:
also whoever suggested tabasco sauce and coke (a while back), I thank you, it is awesome
It's not trolling, it's just satire.

Tabasco flavored coca cola?  Damn, not sure I'd try that.

I must try it.

Additionally, I do wish sweet chili sauce came in hotter varieties.  Sweet habanero sauce is good, I've made it, but it's not something I'd eat regularly.

- piece of chocolate dipped in hummus. not as bad as you think, especially not if you had a few drinks and proclaim that "EVERYTHING IS BETTER WITH HUMMUS".

- bacon+cheese pancakes, with molasses syrup.

- speaking of Brie (or Camembert), that shit would be pretty good with some red jam on toast.

In semi-related "fuck yes I gotta try this sometime" news, my book on molecular gastronomy tells me that if you mix camembert and Vermouth properly, you will get the right amount of fat/water/protein mixture as milk cream and you can whip it into fluffy awesome like whipped cream.
