Food Mashups . . .

#1 Post by J a y H a c k » August 16th, 2020, 8:24 pm

mash-up (noun)
Something created by combining elements from two or more sources

I couldn't decide what to eat for breakfast this morning so I stared at the refrigerator and eventually decided to mix a few things together. I went with Melitzanosalata with ultra low moisture yogurt that I had made two days before, added a chopped hard boiled egg, and then threw in some fresh chopped cilantro. A quick taste indicated a need for more salt, and that was it.

Do you have any favorite food mashups?

Shawarma tostada...

Fry up some corn tortillas, spread hummus or mutabbal, and top with shawarma and tabbouleh.

We mix crookneck squash from our garden with Butter, Salt and Pepper from our kitchen, nuke in a glass container for 7 minutes and then mashup with our potato masher.

Does that count?

I mashup bananas and peanut butter and spread on bread. Makes a tasty sandwich.

Had Trader Joe’s crisp bread, Velvet Peanut butter and a thin slice of raspberry pie and top. The Lord’s best peanut butter and jelly sandwich

As a way to use up leftovers, we tend to do "breakfast burritos" on the weekend, which is scrambled eggs with whatever protein and veggies are floating around the fridge. Throw in some fresh cilantro and hotsauce and it's quite delicious.

Once while staying with a friend, we had Thai food for dinner. The next morning I made us a Thai-tatta. A Fritatta with the Thai food. Fritattas are good for leftovers.

Ha...funny. Like several above, we're frequent "burrito" and fritatta mashers that always include leftovers. Very versatile and nearly always quite tasty. I also have been known to do a version of fried rice that includes leftovers...most often protein or vegetables.

I think this is irrefutable. Take any leftover, pan fry it, then add an egg (either directly, or a fried egg to place on top). If still not quite right, add hot sauce.

I like to put spaghetti sauce or Indian dishes over a baked potato.

We also melt up a nice pot of Fondue cheese, a little on the creamy side, pour it over elbow pasta, and serve it as Fondue Mac n' Cheese.

Not in my house. Although I could probably live with stirring some beaten egg into hot and sour soup, I could. It abide the mixing of the broths

Another good combination is egg salad and tuna salad.
Also lox with egg salad.

Cold roast potatoes (especially when done in goose or duck fat) is a good place to start.

Do report back please.

I strongly suspect one could fry (almost*) anything in duck fat.

I generally fry mine in leaf lard and it's delicious. I don't think you can go wrong with duck fat ever!

Might the relatively low smoke point be a problem?
