5 Food Mashups That Are Oddly Satisfying

If you haven't already, try these!

(SPOT.ph) There are some food combos that we all know work well together. Ham goes great with cheese, bacon and eggs are breakfast staples, pizza and beer perfectly pair up andm, of course, there’s the famous marriage of peanut butter and jelly. We take these flavor combinations for granted and don’t even realize just how many more tasty mashups exist, if only we dare to experiment. Because sometimes, often by happy accident, food that seems like it should never be served on the same plate comes together to create something absolutely mouthwatering. Here are some food mashups that are just plain delicious:

French fries dipped in ice cream

Look no further than these two fastfood favorites for a successful sweet and salty, hot and cold, combo. And if you really wanna nail this mashup, use soft serve swirl ice cream and extra crispy potato fries.

Tuyo and champorado
Here’s one homegrown union of flavors that you might know well from childhood. It’s probably the wildest entry on this list, but who can deny just how well the familiar chocolate-y porridge is complimented by the taste of salty dried fish?

Chocolate-covered bacon

Bacon and chocolate are pretty awesome stuff on their own. As we all know, bacon is a gift straight from the gods. Chocolate, as well, is beloved the world over. So it should really go without saying that these two together is nothing short of epic.

Peanut butter and cheese sandwich

Like mentioned before, PB&J is a classic. But you know what else tastes great with peanut butter and bread? Good ol’ cheese, that’s what! And while this mashup is delicious on its own, you can go even further and make a grilled cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Strawberry jam hamburger

In case you missed it, sweet and sugary preserves taste divine on juicy grilled meat. Strawberry jam in particular works great with beef. The combination of flavors and textures elevates the regular burger in ways you simply won’t expect.  

These mashups might seem a bit odd to you, but don’t be afraid to give them try. Trust us, they are oh-so-satisfying and delicious. We won’t even blame you if you end up getting hooked on them, they’re just that irresistible.

And hey, since we’re feeling generous, here’s one more amazing mashup for you: potato chips drizzled in milky chocolate or salted caramel.
